Now that's cool!

Even with the little time I spend driving the X5, my first impulse when I want to turn down the radio in either Rdstr is to use my left thumb.

The cruise control I rarely use, and the phone functions would be useless to me too.

Sure would like to wire in one of those left tabs though...

Greg and I did the local novice school in his 528iT - he kept setting the cruise control during the slalom...

Max, did you look at this?

Nope. Cannot add. E39 and E38 run on a different bus system. I looked into it once years ago.

I could come up with some uses for the switches if I had such a wheel.

Wheel

Aside from the switches is the position of the spokes different? I would like the 9 and 3 position of the Z3M wheel more towards 8 and 4. I guess I could blank out the switches with Leather Z tabs.

Without the airbag and without the controls in the pic (as you read, they do not work in Z3s), the wheel costs $300 or so. Airbag is about $600-$800. May not be compatible with your 96. I dunno off hand.

Well i have been researching this alittle at a time, and i have found some intresting info, the switches run on a K-bus and then onto the I-bus , which is how the z3 is wired
the swithes will fit the z3 3 soke wheel , but there is no slip-ring made for this and the vehicles that are made like the new 5er with the 3 spoke and switches dont seem to have a slip ring ( that i can find atleast)
i know the bussiness cd can be wired up to have the tab control volume and mute but cruise i dont know about at all i would assume it could be
if anyone has any ideas as to wire it up so as not to mind while turning im all ears
