E9x - steering wheel options and opinions

Discussion in 'Interior | Exterior | Audio' started by [email protected], Nov 21, 2016.

  1. Hello Spoolers,

    Keep in mind this is my daily.. but, Another question for everyone is:

    what all steering wheel modifications for the e9x's have you done or tried?

    I understand the aftermarket has Paddle Shifts for e9x but, what steering wheel options are there then?

    What would you look for when searching for a steering wheel keep?

    If you have replaced yours and, have any advice what would it be?

    Anyone that could estimate the price it costed them it would also be appreciated! Keep in mind any coding that needs to be done. I feel confident doing.

    Thanks again,
  2. All I did was put an M3 steering wheel on my old and hurting '07 E90. Picked one up lightly used for $300. Love it, plus I still have my old one to fool around with if I so desire. No coding, nothing fancy, just a nice comfy steering wheel.
  3. Awesome man!
    Sounds like a great deal to me! Only thing I would still want would be the paddles but, I bet that does look sweet. I'm just wondering because mine is starting to show age and, the steering wheel is something I always want to look good.
  4. My car is the 6MT so paddles not needed -but the M3 wheel I got has the cutouts for paddles. I was thinking of putting some switch back there for something sneaky...
  5. Absolutely love the mischievous thoughts going on there (;
    But, the cutouts.. Whats the best cutout steering wheel for the price? and, can you change the paddles style?
  6. I'd just keep cruising FB groups, and the for sale section in various forums until you find what you're looking for... as long as you're patient something will pop up eventually. Not sure on paddle styles -never owned an auto or DCT bmw. Just manual. :)
  7. I don't blame you a bit, I wish I would've settled for a MANual but.. I drove one for the last 140k miles before getting my 335xi. I love the auto in the e9x to be honest though. Great system.
  8. So another update...

    My wife wants to get me the steering wheel w/ paddles for xmas.. What All-In-One purchase could I link her to?

    I'm not sure if I have to have a wheel w/paddles or a wheel /w paddle cut-outs or what.. Any/all info is appreciated!
