M Sport E90 steering wheel fitted to my E70

Sun Dec 30, 2018 5:20 pm

The 3 Series and 1 Series M Sport steering wheel is a straight swap and with it being slightly smaller feels great in the hands.

Good upgrade, I always hated the spindly wheel fitted to my e46 330d but the cost of an m sport wheel was high :D

No flappies so I couldn't do this but it does look like a nice wheel - the E70 M wheel is really thick, possibly too much so but I'm used to it now until I drive the wifes X1 for a bit and get back in mine again......

These do come with paddles but seem too expensive really.

They might be very slightly thinner but feel better in the hands especially around the 10 & 2 o'clock position. I might consider having it re-trimmed a bit thicker in the future.

No coding required, simply a plug and play job?

You mean for the paddles?

That I can't confirm but can't see why not if you already have paddles fitted. All the plugs inside this standard one are exactly the same as the E70 one I removed.

No just in general (minus paddles) - was curious if it simply plugged in and worked. :)

Yep it plugs and works, takes 10 mins to swap.
