Wink Steering Wheels

Where can I get a new steering wheel for my 99' 740IL? Would prefer something nicer than just the standard black leather oem. Or a retrofit from an M series as long as I have all the functions. Radio, cruise, etc. I want to upgrade my car, but do it little by little.

///M tech steering wheel is a straight swap and you retain all the functions, just remember to disconnect both terminals on the battery before you attempt the change "Air Bag" in face not good!!!.

As for where do I get one: ebay, best UK or German ebay sites, you could try US.

If you require instructions PM.

airbags may still not function properly after a swap, so do it at your own risk
