The wheel feels awesome. I love driving with it and I have more control as far as grip. No its not fraying up at all. As long as you take care of it and your hands are clean you should be fine. Sweaty hands, dirty hands, greasy hand, water, food etc will all help in the fraying process. Mine looks great. I believe the wheel also comes in Leather as well but it won't feel or look as sporty. As far as my tires they are the stock tires that came with the 19" M-sport wheels. I believe they are Goodyear Eagle LS2 RFT(not the best clearly) but haven't got around to changing them out for better ones. Ill double check and if they are different ill post it here if not then they are the ones I already listed.

Great car man! I think i found its twin! Interested in how easy it was to retrofit the Vorsteiner rear diffuser to the car. I have the M sport package and an Eisenmann Quad...let me know what you think?

PS...I also recently retrofitted back to winter tires for the season as well. Went with Michelin Pilot A/S 19" wheels on my M Sport OEM wheels. Much better than the run flats the car came with!

The vorsteiner rear diffuser should bolt right in no problem. You shouldn't have any complications. Just swap the M-sport diffuser right out with the Vorsteiner one and your good to go. Those tires are great! I had them on a previous set of 20's. The ride is very comfortable and yes much better thant the stock runflats.

Thus I am interested in your experiences and impressions.

Thanks your car looks awesome bro! Great job!
The first link didn't show me any wheels. The second link's wheels seemed good to me. The color doesn't seem to bright. My Vorsteiners look bright sometimes when the sun or direct light hits them and they still look good with DGII. I wouldn't worry if they were a little lighter than the cars paint. Its better that way then too dark.

Hey guys, for anyone interested im selling my Vorsteiner Rear Spoiler...Looks just like it did when I bought it a few months ago.. reason for selling is because it conflicts with my molded spoiler on my carbon fiber trunk so if anyone wants it let me know.. Im also going to list it in the owners market place.

It is indeed perfect. I like M5/M6 rims better and would only change that
