Need help from German bimmers

I'd like to buy a 2nd hand M steering wheel cover on German eBay but the seller doesn't do international shipping. Standing to another German seller, it will cost 17€ with the German post.

I wonder if any of you could receive this item and then send it to my address. Obviously I will pay (through paypal or whatever) the money for the shipment fees.

I'll try again for sure as soon as I found another one. I even wrote to a guy of the italian forum that seems to have OEM parts at good prices, just in case.

Why not just order a new M3/1M steering wheel? German list price is 360 euros plus another 73 euros for the trim around the switches. Most dealers will cut you 10% to 20% off those retail prices. Not sure how much more the DCT paddles would cost.

You could also buy from Dan at "United BMW" or Tischer at Getbmwparts.com

As you can see the 7speed DCT Paddles fit just fine:



PS: I've got the M3 Trim coming this week...

Love the footwell lighting! What is that? Saw something similar on a friend's Dodge Challenger. It was in the footwells, the overheads, and light on the back of the front seats, lighting up the rear passengers' footwell. I told him it was "tacky fabulous." (Yeah, I'm gay. )

Actually it's for the money. If I buy a M cover for 50-60€ and I renew the steering wheel leather for 100€, it's half price than a totally new one.

Just LED replacements for the OEM bulbs... Basically it's a circuit board with 4 ultra bright LEDs and a chip that prevents "bulb out" ECU codes.

You can get them on eBay for about $20/pair. Just make sure you get the "CANbus Error Free" ones...

Takes about 2 seconds to put them in...
