BMW performance parts

I have a credit with BMW of about $950 at msrp pricing, I'm trying to figure out what to do with it. I wanted the electronic performance wheel but based on the pricing my dealership is giving me I'd rather not(above msrp) as it makes me feel
Like the credits worthless because most of it will go to the price difference between their quote and the market pricing out there at places like tischer etc. I have the performance spoiler, n55 midpipe and grilles so what's left?
I'm considering the non electronic performance wheel or carbon fiber mirror caps, but neither are making me very excited. Any other parts you guys have liked? I think I'll just get the wheel but I'm not super excited and am worried my clammy hands will ruin the alcantra, anyone have any experience with its durability?

I'd add the 950 to the dinan remap.
Or maybe a nice M jacket and a
1M car cover .

Is this credit from your BMW credit card(rewards points)? If so, this can be applied to any dealership, you just have to specify before you cash out you credits. Silver Springs or Tisher BMW usual can get you much lower than MSRP.

The credit isn't from cc points and I believe it has to be used at "my" dealer for certain reasons; I was thinking there might've been something I completely overlooked but steering wheel it is!
Thanks guys.

How about getting a PE (performance exhaust) ?

Or the Alcantera sport steering wheel with a performance SSK. ?

Nah, let the dealer throw in a moonroof, front foglights and heated backseats.

Cut-cut-cut... Ooooh, the action...

Are we sure there is no SSK for the 1M, I thought it was available through the dealer/ BMW Performance?

BMW Performance does not offer one for the N55 nor the 1M. But since the 1M uses the same N55 135i trans, some of the N55 guys have figured out a way. In short any SSK "lever" will get you 85% the feel of a Performance SSK. The N55 guys used one from an e90 Perf kit. I think its a little bit too short, so I would suggest using the N54 Perf SS lever part(bellow)...

N55 Short Shifter's

I would order the BMW Perf SS lever(#5 in the link bellow)... and try that one first. You will also need #4 and a few c-clips(#6)...
