3 spoke steering wheel swap on 98 E39

Has anyone swapped the old 4 spoke for a newer style 3 spoke steering wheel? Is any one selling a 3 spoke wheel with an air bag?

Changing the wheel is quite straight forward, BUT make sure you disconnect the battery first or you may have the air bag go off!!!!

Just go here, scroll down to the steering wheel pic an click

Hey thank you for that resource! I have seen that before, just didn't realize there was all that additional info. You see I want to put the E46 M3 wheel on my E39.
