since u posted that, just wonder what that wheel would cost, and is that any "modding" i need to do to put one on?

Hey I know exactly which wheel it is your talking about. I've thought of getting it myself, but I think I'll be getting a momo instead. Anyway check ebay, I saw one on there a couple weeks ago, used for just over $100 with airbag perfect. I can't find any right now but keep checking back im sure you'll find it, actually theres alot of nice factory BMW steering wheels on there so maybe u'll find something even better. Peace.

minature air bag?.. i think you mean the M-Tech II steering wheel.. imo the nicest e36 wheel out there... but it's not an air bag in the middle.

The one that SickFinga posted looks nice too though.

yea those are all pretty cool looking wheels...even that one with no airbag is really cool, if i were 2 put one of those wheels with buttons on would i be able 2 make them functional though?
thanx 4 all the input guys!
