Installed a new OE wheel today: (switching the bottom trim)



New wheel makes the entire interior newer!

OE chrome kidney grills with painted satin black slats and washed. Went back to OE on the gills and clear corners and sides for an OE+ look.

Nice journal! Great example of a cleanly modded SG M3. The new steering wheel looks good!

Edit those most recent pictures of the grills don't show up for me. Where did you host them?

Thanks Brian! Ya, imgur which doesn't seem to link well. I was getting fed up with photophucket. Any suggestions?

If you click on the photo and ask it to load or open it up in a separate tab, that works sometimes :/

Thanks for the color code! Cars looking better and better with every update. New steering wheel looks great, another question... can you remove just the bottom of the steering wheel trim without removing the top?

Photobucket was downsampling my images, so moving to flickr and will reupload.

No, unfortunately. The bottom attaches to the top, then both to the wheel.

Ahh I thought so. I know someone listed some work around but I usually browse on my phone. Honestly I don't like photobucket that much either. I used to use it a few years ago. Lately I have been using Flickr.

Grills look good though I can see the ones you reuploaded. I'm a fan of the chrome surround and matte black slats on our color.
