Hi all, I'm thinking of picking up a 2012 640d coupe F13 but I really dislike the design of the fat steering wheel and I love the new slim and sharpe BMW steering wheels that are on the newer 15/16 models.

Was wondering if anyone has done a steering wheel replacement before on their Bimmers? and roughly how much are we looking at?:dunno:

Many thanks in advance.:thumbup:

Figure between $500-1000 for the wheel, and you can do the replacement yourself. It involves a flathead screwdriver to pop out the airbag and a ratchet set.

Nope not so easy, the 2012 car does not use the same air bag design you will need to replace that as well. I change steering wheels on every car I buy (it is an ASD thing) and what I do is buy a second wheel and have it remade the way I like.
