    Long time lurker. Thanks to all for the valuable information. I will be getting a 2012 or 2013 3 depending on deals available. I want to get all my aftermarket parts picked out prior to buying the car so I can get all installs done ASAP. Wheels,tires,tint,clear bra,Katzkin and I want to get the JDM steering wheel installed also. Anyone on here do that? IF so what is the cost? I live in North Orange County.

    Thank you

    Thank you for the warm welcome rider. I want to pay someone to install the wheel. Any local people install for a price? If so what is the cost?

    Your local dealer should charge you for no more than an hour's labor, plus maybe a nominal amount to adjust the tie-rods... in case the new wheel's splines don't line-up precisely with those of the old wheel.

    Don't bother with overpriced dealers. Go to Tommy @ MusicBox. 626-823-2853. Shop address is 948 Durfee Ave #C, South El Monte 91733. He's installed a number of things for us, including JDM steering wheels, turn signal mirrors, fog lights, suspensions, etc.
