Day 23.... the housemates have all been teasing TRL, apparently his car has been delayed and wont be arriving Friday 30th
as the PDI centre have a problem with the left kidney grille .... :shock: :(
Do they know who I am ? :lol:

So.... at least the AC Schnitzer roof spoiler has finally arrived. Opened it with the body shop manager for inspection. it comes primed which is nice,
however we found a lot of pit marks and holes. its going to take some work to get the finish I will want. Should be painted before the car arrives at least.... nice collection of different coloured AC labels to fit in the recess each side, but the adhesive supplied is not as strong as windscreen bond
so we are going to use that instead.

Having tried the MP alcantara steering wheel on an M4 I have going out tomorrow, I think that I will soon be spending £600 odd there, as it transforms the feel of the wheel for me. Plus prevents those pains in the fingers in winter (yes I know a heated steering wheel is cheaper)...

The we need some MP metal pedals to brighten up the gloomy foot wells.

Looks like the M140 MPE wont be out until mid-December now which is a shame, so I am swapping my black trims with a forum customer who
wants black ones on his 340 touring and I will have his chrome ones. Saved us both £80 there.....

Have you seen 'Royal Steering Wheels' http://royalsteeringwheels.com/ They can just re-trim your original wheel or any specific parts of it in alcantara and will be FAR cheaper than the MP steering wheel. An example of an f20 wheel below...

That looks incredible... Any idea how much? How much fatter does it make the wheel, as I find the normal thickness ideal?

I think I remember someone saying it was £150-200 depending on material choices, extras like a coloured ring at the 12'clock position, multiple colour stitching ect.

I don't think it makes it thicker because they replace the leather so in theory would be the same, but worth sending them a message to double check.

I have sent them an email - will let you know what they reply back with. Thanks for the info though! :)

Update on the wheel. Got a great reply from Royal Steering Wheels, they said the cost to change the usual leather to Alcantara would be £140 & £9.99 for postage.

Really seems quite reasonable compared to £700, and they sent a couple of pictures which look absolutely incredible! Will try and add them later on...

They are only half an hour from work and can fit an exchange in 30 mins they say; so that's me sorted then!
