Doubtful. Based on his car list in his signature and the regular podcasts he produces alongside Rob Ferretti (owner of Gotham Dream Cars; exotic car rentals, aka 'superspeedersrob'), I've got the impression this guy has been quite smart with his finances over his lifetime. Especially with Rob mentioning a few times that Glenn's 'net worth' is more than himself (not that it is any of my business or that it matters).

Considering the guy now puts (what seems to be) the majority of his time dedicated to his youtube channel reviewing cars, his website, and co-hosted podcast (SuperSpeedersPodcast), I just can't see this being the case. If I had to assume, I'd guess he is "retired" from the rat-race and now just doing what he enjoys.

To each their own here, but the oe alcantara by Cong is ****ing amazing. Feels great and the look inside the cabin is killer.

My hands don't get sweaty, and with a decent cleaning every other month, mine kept very well, even after canyons all day and track use!

I doubt there's a better quality wheel, while ledarmanz maybe (probably is) better than Coby, Deadlysyns work hasn't been rivaled by any that I've seen or installed

Have you seen the full extent of Ledermanz work (I'm not just talking about a 'simple' alacantara and tri-stitched re-wrap)?? I love the Coby alcantara wheel my buddy has. Absolutely love it. But the full extent of what Ledermanz offers and what he is capable of does not compare. You can get as crazy as your mind can think up and wallet can afford. No doubt Deadlysyns does great work, but Ledermanz easily rivals him equally, if not surpasses him in both quality and options offered. Is deadlysyns even still offering his services anymore?

Not to throw the "I've been around card" out, but I've seen it all. I've installed a handful of ledarmenz, owned 2 coby wheels (and I didn't love them, hence why I sold them) and yes, I still stand by Deadly's craftsmanship. He used to be more active, but as far as community pioneers go, he brought a lot of knowledge and passion to this forum when it came to, well honestly, every aspect of the car, but especially the interior pieces.

I can probably dig up photos of my old wheel by him, but yeah, it was amazing. Something I got more complaints on than any other part on my previous M3, which is saying something.

Extra thickened, perforated OE alcantara at 3/9, very straight and high quality yellow alcantara stripe at 12. And held up fantastically through all the driving abuse I threw at it.

No doubt I've installed some nice ledarmenz pieces, and I know most of you like the flat bottom (wasn't for me) but Cong's craftsmanship is just a notch above from what I've personally seen over the years.

Edit: well looks like photobucket was who I hosted my photos with... can't seem to get them to show up for me or I'd post them

Great car.

I love this M3 more than any possession I've ever had. BUT. I will love the Aston Martin V12 Vantage I'll eventually have even more.

3 more years.

I love the V12 Vantage, especially years 2011 & 2012 because they only came in stick. Now you can get the stick again on the 2017 model.

Good Luck, hope you get it. When you get it, you have to let me review it !
