New steering wheel

What year did they start with the new steering wheel and interior refresh on the 5 series? I thought it was 2014 like the M5 but it looks like it was 2016?

The sport steering wheel and LED fog lights were standard equipment starting in the 2015 F10.

Was the new steering wheel an option because I see a few 2014 and 2015 on sale that still have the old steering wheel?

Which steering wheel are you talking about? The only in the picture below? That steering wheel is standard on all 2015 5 series.

Thats not standard in 2014 is it? I just did a search for 2014 cars and they are not those. Those seem to be available in 2014 m5 or 2016 528/535/550.

The picture that I posted is standard in the LCI M sport (second half of 2013) here in the UK - not sure about other markets

Note that it is different to the picture in the second post of this thread, which has a different lower centre trim and different paddles. That one is the LCI M5/M6 steering wheel here in the UK but I'm not sure what year that is applicable to for the ///M cars.

It looks like the USA 2016 528 M sport will have the wheel that I posted:

http://bmw-model-lineup.caseybmw.com...-hampton-roads

Whereas the USA ///M cars will have the ///M wheel posted in the post no.2 (note the M buttons on this wheel)

Here are the 2 wheels together for reference:

///M wheel -



M Sport wheel -

I believe the thick Msport package wheel was introduced in MY14. Its slightly different from the real M wheel (contrast stitching, paddle shifters).

This is the wheel that came with my car. When doing my search which took 5 months, this is the only wheel that I saw on MY 2014 M Sport cars.

I kinda prefer the look of the pre-LCI steering wheel. I have a '15 loaner recently and did not care for the look and feel.
