Steering wheel upgrade

Recommended Posts

Hi all. I believe I have the older style steering in my e39 sport

My question is, what's involved in replacing it with the later (facelift?) e46 state wheel like this

Airbag system changed at 3/99 from one stage to two stage system. If yours' is post 3/99 manufactured that newer wheel is straight swap. If yours' is with the older system, serious hacking involved.

Mines 2000 so think I'll give it a miss. Thanks for the advice marey

That's a good thing. You can go for it as your well AFTER the change over date.

Ha ha no worries. Yes mate it's really easy. I did mine a year or so back. If you look at my M5 thread and skim through a bit, I put some instructions on how I did it.
