Lightbulb message for Andy, John, Ron and other gurus

I love everything about my coupe but if I were forced to criticize one major thing it would be the steering wheel. I would love to have a slightly smaller diameter, much fatter wheel. I remember there was some discussion here in the past about coming up with a relatively hassle free solution to this "problem". Have you guys thought about that? I'm sure it would be worth your while.

relatively hassle free solution

No. None available. Best bet at this point is to try a Z4 wheel. We don't think the architecture will be right however. But it might be worth a shot. That wheel rocks. Better than E46 M3 wheel.

E46 M3 wheel is not an option for E36/7 or /8.

Wrap-on, stick-on, strap-on wheelskin-like solutions are not an option (in our opinion) either.

I see I'm not alone in this search....
I saw a picture of a coupe with a Z8 wheel but it didn't look very good.
