The E91 is a solid car and very firm. That E9X platform feels a lot more modern than than the E46 platform. The best thing you can do is to go drive one. Having driven both, the E90 and E91 feel very...

Wait...so you have no horn and no airbag right now? Why don't you simply re-install your old wheel for MOT? eBay or a BMW breaker should have the parts you are looking for though. Just bear in mind...

We actually traded in a Saab 9-3 to get my E39. Swabs are far less dependable than BMW's IMO. Having had both I was amazed at how easy BMW's are to work on compared to Saabs.
