Project E36 M3 (Silver): Part 4 – Updating the Interior with Ultrasuede Accents

Completed Shift bootThe shift boot goes back on the same way the old one was removed. I was very pleased with the new stitching.

Completed ArmrestWith everything in the center of the car replaced, the last step is to reinstall the steering wheel.
Completed Steering WheelMake sure to align your sharpie marks, plug the airbag and horn wires in to the wheel, then the wheel to the steering column plugs, tighten the bolts and you’re done!
Completed interiorOverall we were extremely pleased with the results of our Ultrasuede covered and “Motorsport” Tri-colored stitched steering wheel, shift boot, E-brake boot, and armrest by Coby Wheel.  The look of the car is updated to be both sporty and modern, while improving the overall feel inside the car.  As I said earlier, the steering wheel is the most important interface the driver has with the car and since most racecars have alcantara/suede wrapped steering wheels, the texture and feel of our new wheel not only looks and feels better, but it’s a soft yet grippy material that is better suited for performance driving.

We highly recommend taking your old, worn-out BMW steering wheel and trim pieces to Coby Wheel.  Not only is his quality hard to beat, but you can’t beat his turn-around time or prices.  While you can get brand new wheels wrapped in Alcantara for anywhere from 2-10 times the price, it really becomes a no brainer to have your stock wheel wrapped by Coby Wheel to give your car an updated, more modern look and performance feel that is normally reserved for special car variants like the M3 GTS, Porsche 911 GT3, and AMG Black Series cars.
