BMW Performance Steering Wheel installed

Got my new steering wheel installed today took the chance to try some interior shoots also trying to show how it would look with Red interior.

The steering wheel is amazing, looks stunning and feels great. Loving every minute of driving it.

Very nice but the only thing I'm concern is the wear & tear, have you take a look at the M wheel?

Yep (have a look here) , had the regular M sport before. I got a plan on cleaning it weekly using a brush and vacum, and using the BMW cleaner every now and then. Also going to avoid driving with dirty hands lol. From what I read online

from the other Thread

I can tell it fits perfect with Red Exterieur

The cleaning is no PIA! The ony Thing you should drive with clean Hands! No Handcreme or something like that. For "Sticky Fingers" or Autobahn Section i use some Handgloves (THX Dack!)

The Color of the stripe

The Color of the Brand "Performance Parts" was yellow. Now you can get the Stripe in yellow, blue or red.

I don't think that's true. The "Performance" steering wheel (shown above) has the yellow stripe. The "///M Performance" steering wheel has the blue stripe with the M colored stitching. I don't think they make a red one from factory.

Here's the ///M Performance wheel in my car:

The blue one only comes for DCT and Manual cars not steptronic (if you want to keep the original pedals )

Here's the ///M Performance wheel in my car:

Yep, the M Performance version(blue stripe) has the tri-color ///M stitching vs. the white stitching on the Performance wheel w/ the yellow stripe.

There actually is an M Performance wheel available with a red stripe, but it's specifically for the new F30 3 Series models shown here.

BTW - these pics look great!

I want the ///M performance wheel with the blue stripe, but my 135 is DCT, and I can't find out whether the OEM 135 DCT paddles will fit this wheel, or if I need to upgrade the 135 DCT paddles to M3 paddles (as per the upgrade to a Steptronic 135?)

The issue is not the steering wheel, it the paddle compatibility with the wheel.

The M3 DCT paddles are different to the 135 DCT paddles, and I can't find out whether the OEM 135 DCT paddles fit the M3 wheel or whether you need to change to the M3 DCT paddles.
