will a non airbag steering wheel work in airbag car?

well the 325is is moving forward and it's time to address the popped air bag. I have a spare standard steering wheel that has been installed and it looks just like what it is, average and plain. I can't get the horns to work with it and it's very close to the control stalks but for now it'll do. If I do manage to find a sport wheel (non airbag) will it work i.e. horn buttons or am I stuck having to go back with the clunky airbag style?

I guess you have found out that the short answer is NO. You will have to fiddle around with depths and contact configuration to make it work. If the splines are a correct fit it won't slip around in use, it is the other functions you need to address. Also the Air Bag light will always be on, unless you pull the globe.
Good - Fast - Cheap: Pick any two.

I've just changed my wiper blades and now my reverse lights don't work. Should I change my fuel pump relay?
