    Just did the steering wheel, thanks for the photos w202mae! Super easy, I went with the eBay MIT seller, super fast shipping!

    Only issue I had was screwing back in, it was very snug and needed extra strength to tighten up.

    Now my hands feel like its driving a Lexus :)

    They make an all leather version of the JDM steering wheel with red stitches.

    Nice but when i started the upgrades told myself not to touch anything that is in perfect working condition. But we'll see.

    I think the only major oem part that I upgraded that I could have left alone was the shifter but the push button shifter was just too cool not to upgrade too. Everything else on my car are definite add-ons and improvement to the look and handling I am after.

    I think I may do the JDM steering wheel but probably next month, my wallet is way too light especially getting the HRE wheels & Michelin tires for our Tesla (OUCH)!

    Would you install that yourself? Would that be a simple install for you?

    It's a relatively straight forward and simple install. I've done a couple now and could get it in and out in less than 20 minutes. Swapping everything over takes more time than getting the wheel off.

    If anyone needs help doing it, feel free to let me know.

    Thanks. Where do you live? From what I've read, you have to get the steering realigned after the install because it will be slightly of centered. Is that true?

    It will most likely be a little off but how much it bothers someone varies.
    Alignment isn't too expensive either and it usually a good idea to do one once in awhile. Especially if you did any modifications to the suspension.

    I'm in Northern California.
