F10 M-Sport steering wheel to F01

I have the basic thin steering wheel on my F01 LCI. My previous F30 had a M-sport wheel what I liked a lot. M-Sport wheel what comes with 7-series does not have that design, but I guess that F10 m-sport steering wheel would fit to F01? I have lane change vibration motor and heating.

Has anyone swapped F10 wheel to F01 ? Is it a plug and play if F10 wheel has vibration and heating?

no idea on the heating and vibration issue. I did a wheel swap so I could get the paddle shifters and I think both F10 and F01 wheels are the same. Check with patryk at bimmertech, he can tell you. I bought mine from him with coding.

I have swapped the regular steering wheel for the Individual steering wheel on my 2010 7 series, and as long as you ordered the wheel with the same options, all the functions worked.

I think the only difference is the heating, as some wheels heat, while others do not, but that still doesn't stop you from changing out the wheel.

Nice wheel, but I like the look of the factory wheel on the 750,

I am just adding steering wheel heating. I have to order the controller and switch because my car did not come with heated wheel from the factory.

You paid $1000+ in parts, plus the cost of coding, just to get a heated steering wheel?

If I was you, I would just buy the best pairs of gloves rather then heating the steering wheel. The gloves would work outside the car too.

no paddle shifters on that wheel? I am mostly looking at switching steering wheels to get the paddle shifters. but now that you mention it, would love to add heated wheel while I m at it. How do you activate the heated function?

Looks good. Is the wheel the same size/thickness as the old m sport one?

Had the paddle shifters in previous car and never used those. Decided not to take them. Heating is activated from button in steering wheel column. I don't know about about the size and thickness compared to old one. My previous wheel was the standard non-m-sport.

Yep the F0x M sport wheel design is dated, when I had my 7 I always envy the new M sport wheel, now I finally got it in my M

go to bimmertech, they have the correct wheel. I had it on my F01 and even though I didn't have lane change etc. the wheel had the buttons for it as well as paddle shifters. shifters have to be coded and they only work in sport mode I believe.
