ordering an X3 28i with the sport steering wheel?

I dont see it possible in the configurator.. but is there a hidden option or a way to order the thick steering wheel with the thumb rests and the chrome trim on the 28i ? I see it included in the activity package, but cost aside, I really detest dark headliners and not so happy about the chrome trim pieces outside either. I do not want the M package either.

Does a heated steering wheel option by default give me the thicker steering wheel?

Alternatively, is it possible to order the activity/ x line package with anthracite headliner delete?

To clarify, the steering wheel does not necessarily have to have the paddle shifters, just the thickness and the thumb rests.

In the US due to marketing decisions, you have to buy entire packages to get what are otherwise a la carte options in other countries. So you'll have to get the Sport Activity Package.

You can get an M-Sport steering wheel and have it installed afterwards. But this seems like an expensive way to go.

I originally wanted to custom order, but ended up buying in stock. The only thing I want but don't have is the roof rails. Now if I want them I will have to pay the part $250 plus labor which is about $600~800

I guess I can live without them. At least it's not something major, like the color of the car.
