Hi there.

Just got back from my local dealer, inquired about the price of M-sport steering wheel for my 325. P/N - 32 34 4 229 230.
Price - $909.84 canucks! ( :confused: $580 US :mad: )
Installation - $157.00 canucks...

I didn't find the price on the, but people are always talking about $300-400 US price range... Maybe my math is wrong, but that is a bit cheaper than the quote I got :(

Sigh. I didn't find out if the dealer will install it if I get it somewhere else...but I do hope so :(

P.S. Can I buy it on-line from PacificBMW? Can someone give me a direct link? I can't seem to find it.

My odyssey

I ordered my M steering wheel from Patrick BMW for $375US. However, they sent me a SP steering wheel instead with the wood trim. I called them back and at first they didn't believe me. Finally they did send me the correct wheel (of course, I had to pay to ship the SP wheel back to them). F*cking UPS (I really hate UPS, I really hate UPS.... :mad: ) charged me two times for brokerage fees. I had to bug Patrick BMW to send UPS a statement indicating it was a return and after a month I got that money back.

After I got the wheel, I tried to get the round airbag (I don't have SP) but the only dealership that was willing to sell it to me is Maranello BMW. It cannot be shipped from the US (contains explosives) and the local dealers were too stupid (they kept on telling me it won't work because I don't have SP, idiots!). Finally, I paid $1,000 CDN for the airbag and had them install it (1 hour labour). BTW, if you don't have SP, it is pretty difficult to DIY. You will need the correct torx (sp?) screwdriver to get the non-sp wheel off. While Maranello did a good job overall, they washed and scratched my car.:mad:

Finally, I am proud to say I am the reason Patrick BMW no longer ship to Canada. Actually, they told me that in my last phone call with them.:D

When I think of the cost of the whole thing (in time and money), I cringe a little but when I have my hands on the steering wheel, I forget about all that.

Out of curiosity, did you sell your old airbag + wheel, Sjumper?? Or are you keeping them so you can change it back when you've decided to sell your car?
No, I haven't sold it yet. It is collecting dust somewhere in my house. I really should put it in a secure place since the airbag can be explosive.

Anyhow, there are a lot of people out there with old SP steering wheels and they can't get rid of it for $100US. I don't think anyone will be interested in my non-sp 4 spoke wheel. I think the airbag can fetch a bit of change but since I'm keeping the wheel, I figure I might as weel keep the airbag.
