E90 metallic trim for steering wheel.

Hello,

I think 2007+ E90 sport pkg have this metallic trim on the steering wheel which I really like. I was wondering if this trim can be fitted on a 2006 E90 steering wheel, or does the steering wheel as a whole need to be changed? (Sorry, I am new to this stuff.)

If the trim can be fitted then how is it done? Does it have be done by a pro, or can a person do it himself?

Any extra info is much appreciated such as where to buy the trim, and a DIY tutorial would be nice too

Thanks a lot

Fadi

The trim does come off, and given that you have the same style steering wheel, the trim can be replaced by the one you want.

Hello and thanks for the reply. It looks like I didn't explain it well:

The present steering wheel has no trim, like this: http://image.motortrend.com/f/952774...ront_Cabin.jpg

And I want to add a trim to it to make it look like this: http://www.seriouswheels.com/pics-20...s-1280x960.jpg

Is this possible? And how to do it, if you know?

Thanks

Yes it can be done.

I have the metallic trim FS as well.
You will need to pop out the airbag, and replace the trim (very simple). I have done it myself over 10 times now.

Msg me if you are interested in the trim.
