325 is Steering

Just wondering, would a 325is(1989) steering wheel fit on a 1987 325? Has anyone sported up their 325 with 325is parts just by slapping them on?

Also the 1987 325 has a four bolt pattern for the rim, that sort of limits the rim choises I'll have. How difficult is it to change the rotors so that its a five and not a four bolt?

P.S. Went to put a drink in the car, no Drink Holders!!??wtf.

Crispy.

Yes, so long as they are both non-airbag steering wheels, they will interchange.

A 5 lug conversion isn't difficult, but finding and installing the parts is a pain. Search for a true e30 M3, these were 5 lug models. Kits run about $1000. If that is too much, look on ebay, you'll find plenty of nice 4 lug rims.
P.S. A 4 lug e30 m3 is a dead give away to spot an "m"poster.

Thanks Starmavin, The Car came with After Market rims, but they are only 15". I figure that if the rims aren't going to be stock they might as well be 16"+. Also the front disks are drilled so I would like to show them off a little.

As for the Airbag, there isnt one so I should be okay.

Crispy.

Its illegal to drink and drive (any beverage) in Germany, hence, no cup holders.
