Performance Steering Wheel(s) And Pricing

BMW Performance Steering Wheel(s)

Which wheel would you go with? And from which distributor/ dealer?

I like both, the electronic wheel and also, the non-electronic wheel with blue stripe @ the 12 o'clock position.

This is a for sure mod. What wheel would go opt for and which dealer/ distributor has the best price for that wheel?

Thanks for any help/ info in advance! It does not go unappreciated nor taken for granted!

**If you have pictures of either one installed in a 1M, please do share!

I have exact same of his, also from IND. Heard from a Forum member that best prices were at Monroe BMW, CA and when I checked their web site that was really better than anything I heard before, but couldn't make a deal with them. I advise you to try the dealer first for either version.

Whatever version you go with it's a delight to touch and look at.

Oh baby! Lol I think I may go this route since I was considering the P3 gauge despite being stock and not tuning. Is that completely pointless?

not at all pointless even for stock. the p3 has a lot of functions to display besides boost: speed, rpm, exhaust temp, intake temp, i cant name them all, and its just cool looking

Get thee some alcantara cleaner and a brush. Try Waxit on the net.

I have the flat bottomed alcantara wheel. I blacked out the blue band with a sharpie to remove the distraction, which is why I didn't want the disco lights version.

I want to get this too, the non elec one since I also have the P3 Gauge. On the iND website there are 2 prices for what seems to be the same wheel - can anyone tell me the difference? one is $655 and the other $875.

Yes, that's the same wheel, that's just a misinformation in their site, you pay the lower price.

I have a yellow bmw performance wheel. I love it. I enjoy it every time I drive my car. Pretty much every person who has a stock wheel in their car wants to upgrade after driving my car.
