Ok, well I've had my wheel (standard "M3 Evo") retrimmed by a guy at work.

I will get some better pictures up soon, it's on the car now, yellow stitching really going with the Dakar car :) I've had two wraps of leather on the wheel to pad it out a bit, it's all hand made, cross stitched.

I had the same guy retrim my old e36 M3's wheel, it's something you have to interface with every time you get in the car, so it's something I've always liked to have done.

If anyone else would be interested in a retrim by this guy, I bought a spare wheel from eBay to have mine trimmed and I still have it now. I will put something up in the For Sale section shortly :)

Just to note though, he does not do the tri-colour stitching. With the cross stitching that he does, it wouldn't look right, BMW do three runs of stitching, this is just the one.

Thanks for posting the pic Dave, I'm tempted by the flat one or the one with the double moulding just a bit concerned a new wheel will look a bit odd in a 20 year old interior but 7 months into ownership the standard wheel does feel too large.

I'm going to ask for the dimensions of the various wheels and will post them here.

Yeah that was one of my concerns when I was buying my Raid wheel, but I don't think it looks out of place and the size feels so much better suited to the car
