Unfortunately not unless you want to shell out the 1,000 bucks or so and then however much it is to paint them.

Well my next addition is completed and shipping to me. I can't wait to install it. Next wave of mods come at the end of June.
After all the PR you gave Ace they never came through for you? I only bought mine because you pointed it out to me.

When I bought it, I asked for the discount they were offering 2 weeks earlier. Nope.

Then, when I got it, my order was wrong and I had to ship it back to be fixed.

About 2 weeks after I bought it, they started offering a free ebrake cover, so I sent a note and asked if I could get that. Nope.

By the way, the fit and finish on the one you bought looks really good. I found that the bezels didn't fit tightly on the Ace, so you are better off with the one you ordered I think.

I'll be curious to read your review once you get it.

If I could afford it, I'd have Indpwr (DSV) do the entire interior of my car.

I couldn't agree with you more. ACE customer service was absolutely terrible and tried to renig on an agreement we had for putting on the group buy. I don't do business with liars and people who like to change their story. It was an absolute nightmare because of lack of communication and Carlos having his own agenda. I will never buy an ACE product for that reason. I was all about getting them business and then kicked to the curb. Luckily DSV knows how to treat a customer. I will be writing a fair review (as much as I don't want to) comparing the DSV wheel to an ACE wheel or two when I get mine. I know Manny and Pyroboy are local and I'm pretty sure they wouldn't mind helping with the comparo.

=) Hope all is well.

Unfortunately, I already installed the Ace wheel in my car. I wouldn't do it again if given the chance.

I will say that SparksAI was a good vendor and took good car of me.

Could'nt agree more! The first wheel I got from ACE also had fitment problems with the bezels. I just got my second wheel sent to me with "a new mold" (well see what happens). I'm gunna change them out tonight if i have time and let you know.....Were they redoing the wheel for you.

No they aren't redoing the wheel for me. I'm going to live with it I guess. I already sent it back once because they had not sent me a wheel with the paddle-shifter openings (and they had glued the screw holes shut back there). They told me I could remove the goo and covers myself to insert the paddles, but the glue was set so hard, I was afraid of breaking something. So, I sent it back for them to make it right. I don't want to send it back again. I'm not sure anyone would really notice that the bezels don't fit perfectly, but they certainly aren't as tight as the stock wheel was. Let me know if yours is better this time.

I only bought the Ace wheel because Mindz recommended it to me. They should have taken care of him.

I need to save a few grand and have DSV do my whole interior in their really good leather.

It should be on when Ofer's installing our mods. =)

Emma, I'm sorry that your wheel didn't turn out. I'm pretty fed up with sponsors that I am proactive about getting their name out that don't deliver. ACE is just one of a few companies/sponsors on a list of about 7.

I wish I could turn back time and have a redo...If your wheel doesn't turn out right, I would suggest just asking for a refund since the quality isn't as good as advertised. You shouldn't be stuck with a subpar wheel that you paid hard-earned money for.

It's not your fault (I didn't mean to imply that. Sorry if it came off that way). The Ace wheel actually looks good in the car. It's just that I'm overly picky about everything on this car, so the bezel not being quite tight just kind of bugs me.

What I was trying to say was that Ace didn't take care of you like they promised after you promoted their product. Some vendors don't get it that customer service is the most important factor in getting people to continue to buy their products. In the modern internet world, we all talk to each other and provide feedback. Word gets around fast.

In the meantime, I'm psyched to see your new cooler steering wheel. It give me something new to aspire to.

You have me so thinking hard about getting this leather interior now!

Maybe I'll just start with the center console.
