What year is your e34? the wheel in the ad uses a face lift clock spring, instead of an early type sliding carbon contact pin on the slip ring. Also, the splines are different between post and pre '92 e34 columns.

Well you'll have to check how your wheel's secured to the column. The changeover happened somewhere in '92 and I can't really remember the exact month.
So, if your wheel is secured with 22 mil nut, means it's an early column. Whereas if it's a 16 milimeter hex bolt is for a facelift column. facelift splines are bigger diameter.
