Default Steering Wheels

My steering wheel sucks on my '97. Here's a couple I found on eBay:

http://cgi.ebay.com/ebaymotors/Parts...=p4506.c0.m245

RIDICULOUSLY expensive wheel. I could get over half of a new suspension for this much. It's a sexy wheel though. Apparently fits.




http://cgi.ebay.com/ebaymotors/Parts...=p4506.c0.m245

Not quite so expensive...but it's still about half a suspension. I'm not sure if it fits, but I like it more than the other.


What determines if a wheel will fit? Are there any ways to fit an older wheel (e30, etc.) like the one above on my e36?


Thanks guyzzz

IIRC, there is a member who used to have the second wheel installed, so I'm guessing it fits, problem is, it doesn't have an airbag

Eh, I could live without one.

The people I know who've been in accidents where an airbag deployed have had more harm than good done to them by the bags. The ones who got really messed up weren't wearing seatbelts...the ones who were had mostly airbag-sustained injuries.

Anyone know the name of that second wheel so I can find out if it fits for sure?

it says "M technic II" in the ad, I'm fairly sure that's the actual name

EDIT: npavs was the member who had it installed on his ti, he sold it, if you PM him, I'm sure he can answer your questions about it

I bought it from npavs - i should be receiving it shortly. I had that same wheel for my E30 and just loved it.
