    i think the wood trim on coupe/vert is going to be the double spoke one? at least that's what I remember my old trim was before i sold it.

    That is interesting. I wonder if my steering wheel lower trim was changed.

    Does that mean that a double spoke trim will fit my steering wheel?

    Yeah it will fit. But it puts like 2 notches on the bottom of the steering wheel lol It took me forever to massage it out before I sold my stock wheel

    Looks awesome, nice of him to send progress pics. I’m bidding on a used M3 wheel so I can get the trim off of it and then I’ll send mine out

    Didn't you say you were going with Rogue? I just realized you switched all of a sudden lol

    You know, I feel like you guys should have tried to do a GB or something. I'm sure there are a bunch more lurkers out there that would want this.

    I was leaning towards Rogue but didn't know about oCarbon but thanks you and your glowing suggestion I switched providers.

    ApexHitter:

    Did you provide wood trim or did you have oCarbon purchase? What price did you pay for the trim? What was your source for the trim?

    I found some very clean wood trim on eBay for $150. Probably paid a little more than the going rate here in SoCal but it was in really nice shape and I shipped it directly to oCarbon in AZ.
