:thumbsup

Still madly in love with them, but then in brushed aluminum with wooden rim. Since that will look rather off in my E21 I haven't ordered one yet... I may have to buy another car haha!

jealous of how clean the car is. Must be a great feeling to start with the cool stuff, instead of fixing up f$%^&ng rust

OH YES! you're doing a great job! ;)
I took the corner at high speed, came in the ditch, drove straight through a garden, flipped over 4 times and then I lost control of my steering-wheel!
