Steering wheel confusion??

Was just having a nosey at 340i tourings on the trader and was hit with confusion over a couple 40k+ 340i m sports with what looks like se steering wheels..

Not sure how to feel about this haha

Never seen or heard of that....

Just had a look and found them too. Either there is a supply issue or they are optioned that way, think you can opt for that wheel. Ruins the cars for me, the SE wheel looks and feels awful. Think id be demanding an m performance wheel installed as part of any deal.

I think I do remember some M Sports turning up with the standard wheel at one point, can't remember why though.

Although the M steering wheel looks great the leather is crap, I had one replaced a while back & that lovely smooth sleek feel soon disappeared leaving it tacky to the feel.

The SE is a lot worse. Think its just dakota, feels crap. The m sport one is nappa and feels great imo, just need to look after the leather.

I like the m sport wheel, the se one really spoils it.. bit odd..

Like the leather on the msport when it's new... none are perfect

I doubt they have the SE steering wheel, it is most likely the Sport wheel.
