Not sure what those are. The 6102240 may be a partial part #, but can't make sense of that.

Go to this website and put in your VIN# then look up the steering wheel... You will need to know which functions your have to match to the correct part number...

That won't help for getting a part # from an existing steering wheel this guy has that he's selling. All he has is the wheel.

Best bet would be to go to dealer and have them pull a steering wheel to show you where part # is located...

Just following up.. BMW replaced the wheel because the thread was coming loose. The new wheel also has a warranty for two years from the install date (only 6 months left on factory warranty). The airbag part (middle of the wheel) was not replaced, so it's just the wheel itself. This is still a $900+ part so I was happy to see it replaced as the old one looked fairly abused, worn down, and faded.

Hi Rajeek - what's the scoop on the sport steering wheel paddle shifter retro, sounds like it may not have been as easy as replacing steering wheel and recoding. You'll also likely need a new spiral spring/steering column switch assy since when your vehicle was built there wasn't a paddle shift option so the wiring wouldn't likely be part of the spiral spring. Otherwise seems like it should work.

Please update - Cheers

You are dead on correct my friend. I was doing 2 retrofits at that time. Surround view camera and paddle shifters. Surround view went perfectly. Paddles not so much. Right now we are thinking the steering control cluster needs to be replaced with the latest model also to support the paddles. This is for the exact reason you mention above, they did not exist in any form in the F series vehicles at the time. That part is now on order and should be here later next week. I would probably expect we will have to have another install attempt in 2 weeks. That is currently where we are at. I will post as soon as we give it another shot. If that doesn't work, I may have to abandon that project sadly, as we are not sure how else to approach the problem and eventually you can only throw so much money at something.

Thanks for the update, I'm pretty sure you'll get it working - spiral spring and control unit seem to be on the right path and there could be some wiring needed. If you had someone willing to share their existing paddle shift equipped vehicle for a quick comparison you could identify any differences in the wire harness. Good Luck, certainly hoping to hear it works!

Sorry bout the late response. I wish I could find someone to share their paddle shift car, but I don't think there would be many takers to allow us to disassemble their steering column for our benefit. Next try this Thurs, will keep posted.

If the control unit and coding works, no need to have someone share their paddle equiped vehicle. I'll be watching for the good news on Thursday
