When I got the wheel from Dimitri, I was thrilled with the quality. The black leather he uses in a full grain leather, like Nappa leather. Not the corrected grain like on the stock wheel. And, he adds a little padding to the wheel making it much nicer to hold (thicker) and look at.
After getting the first wheel, I ordered 2 more from him. One for my S54 coupe and one for AndyM's (my brother) Z3 coupe. For my wheel, I sent Dimitri OEM BMW walnut leather. I have a few hides of walnut that I picked up before they went NLA. For Andy's wheel, I sent him black Spinneybeck Marissa suede (currently used in Andy's car) and specified that Dimitri use Dakar Yellow thread. Andy also wanted the ///M badge on the steering wheel deleted. The results are fantastic.
When you need a new wheel for your car, I highly encourage all of you to buy one from Dimitri. His work is better than factory.
|This wheel will get installed in the Coupenut S52, after the new headliner is installed.|
