How do you like it compared with the original?
I like the new steering wheels much better than the old one cuz it’s thicker for me to grip on. It looks better and more expensive compared to the old imo.

I’m interested to get my hands on one so I can see for myself. I love the original one. What I’m really interested in replacing (if possible) is the flimsy original shifter.

Same here. I'm looking into replacing the gear selector with the new one if it's a direct swap with no modification needed.

Tyre pressure warning yesterday so once around block and back into my garage. This morning 2 kilometre drive to servo to renew air (Bridgestone Potenza run flats) and then 10 minute drive to tyre shop. Screw in tread but they pointed out minor damage to sidewall "from driving on flat tyre". These tyres are supposed to be OK for 80 kilometres! So it cost me 800 bucks for a puncture! (2 new Bridgestones - and I wanted to try my favourite Michelins this time but they were out of stock!)

Rims included? I didn't know that, How much did you pay if I may ask?
Yes wheels included
Exterior = paint, trim, glass, wheels and calipers
Interior = leather, plastics, metals (paddle shifters) floor mats (factory ones)
Below is what we initially had planned then we added glass and when I picked it up he said he did the floor mats. He’s a friend so I had a discount but looking at the quotes I’d say what he did on my car would be around $2500 +/- $100

I flashed the PCM back to the stock calibration so that I could apply the W05 recall
I also put my OEM intake back on as preparation for W05 install. I think it is better to not risk the P1CEA error at the dealership.
