E90 D3 BT steering wheel and drivers mat

Post by NeilT » Wed Oct 13, 2021 2:39 pm

Hi Guys,

I'm looking for a steering wheel and drivers floor mat for my D3 BT.

The Steering wheel is a sports steering wheel with green stitching. I'm not so worried about the condition of the trim around the buttons but the leather needs to be ok.

For the drivers mat, i'm looking for one with the metal ALPINA badge embedded in it.
Cheers
Neil

There are a few E90 steering wheels on E-Bay and even a full BMW Performance Wheel (Which is £1700). I don't think I've seen a proper set of Mats come up for sale, I know you can order from Sytner but its a full set and about £290 for the set.
There was a German company offering Alpina mat's but cant remember the name. Let me check with Mark Ellis I think he got his mats from them.

Thanks, that would be good.

I did call BMR who can get hold of Alpina stuff.

The mats are £160+Vat for the set, but you can get just the drivers one (which is all I need), for £62+vat.

The steering wheel, which has double green stitching is available new for £750+vat.... Think i'll try for a retrim as its only the top bit thats bad.

Morning Neil,

I had my steering wheel retrimming by MPM Trimming. Matt Merriman 07936 021161. He also does the correct straight Alpina stitching perfectly.
The finished article below.

Yes indeed, maybe not cheaper than a std wheel but certainly a lot cheaper than a new Performance Wheel. (I'm not even sure you can get these new anymore) the only one I've seen for sale is on E Bay now at £1700 and it needs refurbishment.

I sent Matt some photos which he will review in a bit. Its only the top section thats damaged which is seperate anyway, so hoping he can put an infil bit in there and just restore the rest of it.
