    Since I have decided to keep the M4 for the medium term I thought I would add some mods. I've bought myself the flat bottom steering wheel but realised it doesn't come with the carbon trim.

    Went to go buy it and its £300! I thought that seemed a bit pricey for a small bit of carbon fibre. I've justified every other carbon purchase but this seems like serious M tax.

    Anybody bought a decent aftermarket version that has a good fit and matches the standard carbon weave?

    They pop up now and again in the sales section, well worth going OEM as it makes a big difference to the wheel.

    Ask for a price from bmw cotswold parts on this forum, did a good price for me on the carbon gear selector and carbon/alcantara trim!

    Ask Cotswold. I bought mine through them.

    If you want to go aftermarket, you can try AutoID, they have it for £220.

    I bought a Carbon Fibre shark fin antenna cover from them, great fitment, great service, but the weave has a small defect in it that I've only just noticed, two weeks after fitting.

    I've seen four different carbon versions available:

    OEM - Carbon with M Performance Logo.
    Aftermarket - Carbon with M Performance Logo.
    Aftermarket - All Carbon - no logos.
    Aftermarket - Carbon with cutout for ///M badge to go in.

    Thanks, will keep a look out for a genuine one. The cheapest I could find was £298 from Cotswold on eBay but might hit it lucky.

    The wheel arrived this morning, what a beauty.

    For those interested the best price I could find was £225 on ebay from a German seller. More than most paid but would rather just get it fitted at one time.

    Arrived today and I have no regrets. Think it's going to look great fitted.

    I went the other way because I wanted to keep the ///M logo, don't like the M performance cheap looking logo and didn't want too much carbon, so had the silver 'Y' section skinned in OEM carbon instead.
    Which frigging shortcut thing do I have to copy and paste on Photoimage ffs??!!!!!!!!!:wtf:

    Nice one! Your new wheel looks great!

    I'm hoping to change mine out soon also.
    I've put a post up in the "WANTED" section for the Carbon bit.
    Cotswolds quoted me £265, and I've also contacted Harry Fairbairn as recommended by 1888ray. Waiting to hear back...

    Stuart.
