Just wanted to show some pics of the custom wheel I got from Mike @ XPH

Wheel shipped within 2 wks of my order, shipping was quik, new wheel had excellent packaging with 3 different mat'l layers on the rim

Workmanship is excellent - very happy with the wheel I received

Thanx to Mike for offering up a hi quality custom wheel @ a decent price

While I had the wheel off, I decided to change up the new one a bit with new MMR Extended Paddles in Anthracite w/red logo, & AutoTecknic CF Trim

Hi
Is it possible to make the https://f30.bimmerpost.com/forums/attachment.php?attachmentid=2336760
with heated and vibrated options?
And how much does it cost?

Heated is not an option with any of the wheels

Vibration swaps over from your old wheel

Has anyone done a airbag conversion, so the non round pre-lci (or non m sport i think?) to the round that fits this wheel?

I am intrigued to change and if I could get an airbag off a wrecked F3x or F8x maybe.

would like to add that the heater is not a good option. If there were some way to connect it to the driver's heated seat, it would be better than using that switch under the steering column.

Furthermore, my M-sport steering wheel in our sedan came with the heating element in the wheel, but no button in the column; now BMW apparently has come up with a way to activate it via subscription?

Anyway, beautiful steering wheels!! PM'd you mike.

Yes, many have done the non MSport wheel to the MSport (round airbag) steering wheel conversion

All you need to do is find a round MSport airbag that is guaranteed good working condition (or buy a new one to be safe) that is proper for your car

But of course you would need more than just the MSport airbag to complete - you would also need all the MSport specific wheel Trim & MSport specific Steering Wheel Buttons plus possibly MSport specific wheel Wiring Harness

I personally would trust all parts coming from scrapyard with exception of Airbag - which I would only use if purchased new

As usual, always big $$ to do any retrofit with BMW
