Any recent steering wheel to fit on E36?

Hi, so today, i was talking to a police officer and suddenly, he saw that i have an aftermarket / racing steering wheel (beautiful...) then, he was mad... He asked to tow my car then i had to deal with him.
He told me the fact that the car came with an airbag system from factory, i have to keep it to be legal on road.
The question: can i fit a bmw steering wheel with or without airbag from a recent bmw model, like 2013 and up?
I hate the original steering wheel on my E36... Looks faded and not sexy at all.

Yes, it's possible to fit a later wheel. Search the forum for "steering wheel upgrade" or something similar

Canada has gotten that picky with modifications? Or was the cop just giving you grief?
