I have pulled the steering wheel and replaced it with vise grips. - I feel its a noticeable improvement. So now I'm posting the OE wheel up for sale. Seeing the ridiculous prices folks pay for some random aftermarket pieces, I figure the REAL BAVARIAN made piece must be of equal or greater value. I mean, how many TRUE BMW enthusiasts consider Italian products superior to true BMW products. Face it, BMW's are the greatest machines ever built. Every part on these cars are stronger, faster and far better looking than some add on/left over/ wanna be Bimmer part. Take a close look at this wheel-The various cracks do not take away from the driving experience -even its shape tells you; its a wheel. As you can see by the pics the BMW badge has been removed from the center pad. I added this to my Honda Civic quick release steering wheel /hub (anodized red of course) Now VTEC kicks in real hard when the trans auto downshifts. - RESPECT !! suckas!
UPDATE- well, this ad has been up for time - only got a couple guys interested in the Honda. So I'm lowering the price to $20. but buyer STILL pays shipping.
