Some pics of my new steering wheel

I had this fitted a couple of days ago and took some pics for you lot

It looks nice and feels great

It's not as thick as the orginal steering wheel either.

I would have bought the BMW Performance Wheel had it come with orange stitching, decided to go with this one and am very happy with it.

Why would you put a BMW wheel on a C63?

All the sharp angles make it look very busy.
How is it on a twisty road?

Great response!!!

Nice wheel too. I just had the BMW Performance wheel put on my car and I love it but I agree with you the white stitching does stand out but still nice. They should have offered it at least with M colored stitching.

Enjoy.

Not a fan, sorry. It looks too busy, with too many sharp turns and angles, doesn't really flow with the rest of the interior and instead clashes in my eyes.

It seems consistent with the spirit of the Schnitzer 1M.

Maybe a little overdone with the contours functionally, but I think it looks pretty damn good! I'm afraid to ask how much?

Looks like it came from a Playstation or something. Stock wheel is much better.

I guess this is what happens when matching is the primary goal. I recommend the OP be sentenced to watching 50 shows of "what not to wear" so that it can be understood that things don't have to match identically to go together.


Lol about a contour on the wheel for every passenger In the vehicle.
