Any North American car with them looks modded to me, as that's what we grew up looking at.
I'm aware it's not an e46 wheel. I'm saying the alcantara is the same as used in the e46. E36s used a different material called amaretta (?) I believe.

The white indicator lights were an option, I've seen US-spec build sheets with this option, S785A.

My old Estoril came with them. I'm not sure but I believe they offered it for 99 models.

That is not an E46 steering wheel. The "alcantara" that tainik uses may be very similar to the one used on the E46, but that's an E36 steering wheel (3/98+ in US, 9/96+ in Canada). Funnily enough, I remember when I first got my tainik-wrapped wheel back in early 2008. I was one of the first guys here to run one, and I posted pictures all over the forums, on here and bf.c, and suddenly everyone started buying them. Funny how he has become the go-to-guy for these. He does great work, though. Mine is still in excellent shape, 8 years later.
Ledermanz > Tainik. Manz is more expensive but his attention to detail is far greater.



Looks great Chris. Time to even the front out with a tray!

Looks great! I think I may have seen this car in Richmond, BC a few weeks ago while I was there for business.

I don't usually enter Richmond because I don't want my car to get t boned repeatedly, but may have been there. There is a twin eurospec of mine but it's a 94 daytonaviolet with no wing.

It's definitely a Richmond/Vancouver thing, but Richmond specifically is the worst. Your car is automatically issued a salvage title if you register it in Richmond to save the registry the paperwork when it happens lol.

My Titanium/Black had this option but ambers were on the car when I bought it...one of the first 2 owners must've changed them because I have photos of the car through the other years. I am considering going back just because of originality.

I think your TV looks good with either. The ambers offer a good contrast.

Westopher...the stance (am I allowed to use that word?) of your car is absolutely perfect. That is THE E36 wing. Nice work with the entire car.

Car looks great. Clears on tv looks good, I like amber on black and silver.
