Just sitting and waiting for the last part of my M-steering wheel with paddle shift.

Order the M-airbag and apparently it is on the UPS truck now waiting to be delivered. Sitting at home and waiting for it to come.
After spending around 3 hours wiring the SZL and FEM module pins, this waiting is killing me because I cannot program until everything is back in place.
Great thanks to Shawn, mokorx, squidlyboy for helping me and putting the DIY together.
COME ON COME ON!!

Do it man, the m-steering wheels feels awesome. It has a go-kart like handling feel to them. I was on base wheel so it had to happen.
I will trade my labor to do this for you if you do the labor for me for a set of headlights for me.
Those dual projectors look awesome! we should meet up so I can check it out. Kudos on the effort!

Hmm... i told myself i would never do another set of headlights, but that offer sounds tempting The work looks super dope bro!

Maybe we can go grab a beer sometime and talk it over. i was supposed to hit up Mark08EX for a beer when i found out he works near me and saw me a couple of times on the road this year. I was supposed to call him last week to go chill, but got busy

Looks good!! Thanks for the picture. My interior is the same and I was wondering how the finished product would look.

If you don't mind, where did you get the airbag from and how much was it?

Of course, I got the airbag from eB after about three months of searching around. I paid $450. What you end up paying may be slightly or significantly different.
The part number is 323045798 for the US cars, you have to make sure the part number is correct and also the back of the airbag has cable attached to it and two stages, some people on eBay may list it wrong or have the wrong information. Verify or ask the seller to provide a picture to make sure the wiring harness have three plugs. See the picture.



If you don't want to source from eB, you can call your local dealer with the part number and ask them to price match Autonation Roseville BMW priced at $690, some dealer will do that some will not. The dealers around here said they can do $740 + Taxes, which will be about $820, you are better off buying from GetBMWparts.com for $740 + $40 shipping. Note, this is a non-refundable part, make sure you really want it. Steering wheel is easier to find, some auction had it going for less than $200 with the pedal shifter if you are patient, I ended up paying $300.

My car was a baseline with that terrible school bus like thin and big steering wheel, I gotta say this really increase the enjoyment for me a lot. The interior is much nicer looking with it as well. If I were on sport line, I may note have bothered but each of their own.

Good luck, I will be happy to answer any questions you might have.

Be sure and have sport auto coded if you don't have it already, it is a really nice difference.
