As for the cloth - I think I may have misled you.... what you are seeing is my real sheepskin seat covers. The cloth seats look much much better. The sheepskin is again great for stinking hot days (like today - 38 degrees C) because it doesn't burn you when you sit on it and it wicks sweat away from the body.
Hey - ALSO managed to pick up a set of genuine 17"BMW rims and tyres for AUD $595 so expecting delivery Thursday or Friday - this is what I got: http://cgi.ebay.com.au/ws/eBayISAPI....ht_1630wt_1163
I dont like the look of steering wheel covers but to each their own. My wheel has a little bit of wear and i would rather replace it with another BMW steering wheel then use a wheel cover, but thats my opinion. I do dislike how hot the wheel gets in the summer but its liveable. Thank god those arnt the real seats. I was a little worried for a moment.
Those 17"s are nice. Should fit with no issues. I have 18"s and they fit with no rubbing on the stock suspension and minor rubbing with it lowered. I gotta go get the fenders rolled for better clearance.
Here is one of the most updated pictures of the 18's on my car. This is when it was still the stock suspension:
