Looks great John. I remember someone mentioning that it will look like a 135 in all black and it does a little. Nothing wrong with that but. The curves are just hidden I guess.

John, interested in Lightweight's titanium exhaust for Vader?
We've got 1 order, so 2 should be able to get a good price (at least save on shipping). Planning to get them to ship it with their MotoGP lips.

PM me for info.

Love it John. You must get that warm fuzzy feeling everytime you open up your garage doors. Vader has invaded!

Thanks Ian, yep IND (they are the only ones who do them with the band, I think PLUS they will arrange the orange stitching too if you want it), came in this arvo.

Cheers Nik, I like it, plus the original one can be put away and put back on a sales time in pristine condition if required.

Out of curiosity did you have to put on a new 'coil spring cartridge' as in did it come with the wheel ? With the BMWP V2 electronic I had to replace the stock coil spring with a new one , it was a bit tricky.

LOVE the alcantara, had it in my M3.

Hopefully it keeps better than the E46 M3 wheels, the stitching finishes it off nicely

It feels nice Quang, and as I said above, you can pack the stocker away in the cupboard for resale time. Dianne has the same wheel with the blue band (she likes blue )

Didn't see or get any spring nik, perhaps something specific to your high roller wheel

The AW car has had one for 6 months, ~10,000ks and no sign of wear at this stage, must admit we are very conscious of having clean hands when using the wheel, but that would go for the leather one too I guess (which looked very tired I might add, in my M3 after 4 years and 40Ks).

Lol @ high roller wheel. I love it to bits but I don't think I could justify spending the money myself on it for a 135. As it was a gift I think I can live with it . Yeh I had to replace the coil spring I don't know why as they looked identical, it was a PITA to do.

Nice white angels installed tonight (mucho grazie Alik!!!) along with some big black euro plates (sorry but they are just boring characters, decided to save the $2,500:00)

Also, organised a detail with full metal jacket for Saturday week. This will be done by a Canberra local who has been trained in the art by Damian at Final Inspection. Theory is, Vader will be show ready (left undercover for the week) for the German Autofest here in canberra on the 23rd of this month.
