Nice retro fit. Thinking of doing the same to my e39, planning a write up soon? I have no idea what's involved!

Quite simply really, items required new wheel with paddles, loom for the paddles or even better loom from an m3, then jump straight in to the wiring on the gearbox, will do a more detailed write with pics :thumbup:

Thanks Sam, think I found the wiring loom (bmw part # 61 13 0 006 664) steering wheel looks pricey though. Think it will be a nice touch so will be on the look out. :thumbup:

Very clever mod, not something I thought would have been easily doable so fair play for getting it done so easily :thumbup:

Went to Low collective last weekend with the Southside Sixers we had some rolling shots done heading towards the show

When driving back the steering felt rubbish, found out one of the track rod ends went, so on to GSF to buy some on a 56% discount, feel loads better now

Also just got these from ebay, great bargain at £100
