The performance wheel has alcantera and an amber read out at the top with several functions. It also has shift lights across the top.

Here is a photo on an M3:

Save yourself some money and use a small piece of yellow tape on your standard M-Sport wheel.

I don't have an M wheel (I know bad decision from the start).... and I really like the bmw perf. one however it is to much $$$... I like the M wheel and was thinking about buying that but now I like this one with the flattened bottom and alcantara...

it is a custom steering wheel if you didnt happen to read my first post, they are NOT produced this way. This is an M wheel, it is just filed flat at the bottom and recovered.

A dealer in australia posted this in another thread that I think he got from BMW...

"For those customers who do not require the information display contained in the electronic version of the
BMW Performance steering wheel, a non electronic version, shown above, is planned to be available late
third/early fourth quarter. This steering wheel is made of both Alcantara and leather and in keeping with
the motorsport theme, has a flat base. This flat base is not available in the electronic version."

^^^ I agree... I would expect it to be in between the price of picking up the M wheel and the electronic sport wheel...

Thats the new performance steering wheel.
I already started a thread for it in the photos/videos section after seeing it at the iaa.
it will cost about the same as the mtech steering wheel.
so it will be a lot cheaper than the other performance wheel with display.

It looks a lot like the MA Carbon wheel for Audi R8 with carbon fiber top, center stripe, and flat bottom. $2,000+. (Yow). I think the R8 wheel is raised slightly above center, though, and I don't think they make wheels for BMW.
