Can you swap the steering wheel?

Can I buy and install a sport package steering wheel on my non-sport model? I have LCI. I believe the sport wheel is smaller if I am not mistaken.

A "used" M-ASK unit from a wrecked car should run in the $100 price. I don't know about just buying the cooling fan. If you do get a replacement head unit, you'll have to code it to the car.

I'm my car's 2nd owner, but in 2.5 years since I've had it, it has NEVER seen a drive through car wash. Touch-less only, or get it doen at the detail shop.

Someone sells a setup for non-xenon headlights, he goes around by username e90lightning or something like that. I'm sorry I don't remember the specifics. But there IS something for you.

Yes - unfortunately it looks like the HP per $ ratio is off. For less than $1000 I did the intake manifold swap and tune, that's good for about 20hp on a 528i. There's nothing else really to do,...

Yeah I've never heard of Throttle body upgrades for an N52. Only performance mods I know of are the tune and the 3 stage intake manifold swap (taking the 30i manifold and putting it on a 25i or 28i).

I see no need to go down to 16 inch wheels. There should be plenty of snow tires to choose from in 17 inch sizes.
