    I have an E90 LCI with a heated sport steering wheel w/ silver AT paddles.

    I'm looking to see if there is similar wheel that is heated, can accept the silver AT paddles but also has the thumb bolsters.

    Bolsters are the only thing missing from the steering wheel being perfect for my preference.

    I'm not QUITE sure what you're asking, but as a fellow E90 LCI w/heated steeering the only OEM "upgrade" I've found is the heated M-Sport wheel from an E89 Z4.

    Although it's plug-n-play and retains the heat function, it requires a different airbag and different paddle shifters (if you have them).

    Essentially I just want same wheel I have but with thumb bolsters and not give up heated function. I like the E89 z4 wheel but from what I've researched it looks like the airbag for it is tough to find for a "reasonable" price.

    I might shoot Nelson a message at nelsonracingwheel

    When you say thumb bolsters, are you meaning groves to lay your thumbs in or the raised humps that protrude from the wheel at the 10 and 2 positions?

    10 and 2 like the manual sport wheel.

    Are you thinking of having Nelson redo yours to include the bolsters?

    Let me know if you reach out to him; I'm heated manual and I'd like to get mine recovered.

    Maybe we could go at the same time and he'd have an example in-hand of how to do yours.

    I can't be without a wheel that long, but I'm contemplating working towards a manual swap slowly. My wheel options would be much better as well.
