So confused: How am I supposed to figure out what BMW performance steering wheel fits

I have a 320i base model. Got a great deal on a lease. And because every dealer in LA loaded up these cars, I was unable to find one with JUST sport package and of course, that amazing steering wheel. I'd like to eventually retrofit the car with that wheel, but jesus christ, there's no way to find out which wheel works etc. Is there some data base out there I can use based on my VIN number can determine what wheel I need? Thanks in advance

Which wheel do you want? The M-Sport one with the paddles, or the Alcantara M Performance wheel? Any F30 M-Sport wheel will work, though you'll probably need a new airbag, as well as coding and possibly wiring to get the paddles working.

I actually don't even want paddles or heat. Just want the wheel and the multi button functionality

Its very complex. I'd probably just search eBay for F30 steering wheels and find what you want. Buying new requires piecing everything together and will cost you thousands. If it fits an F30 or F32, it'll fit your car.
