Must be nice when the bumper cover screws aren't welded to the spring nuts.

It's time consuming but very therapeutic and was a daddy/daughter project. Also just finished the lower trim piece as well.

It sure does. Nice work! Want to do this to my wheel and my E60 wheel. Wonder how much it affects the heating function?

Thanks! Im not sure as I don't have the luxury of a heated steering wheel. This one is actually for my e38 and I ordered one for my X5 but it's in damn near perfect condition. The one in my e38 was a bit rough around the edges.
E38 vs. E53

What's up with the airbag light? Did you not disconnect the battery when you did your wheel?

My airbag module is shot and I have a few spares but haven't gotten around to replacing it yet.
