FS: E46 M3 Tri-stitch steering wheel

Hi all,

Got an M3 steering wheel (also fits E39 M5), about 2 years old so still feels and looks nice. Little marks as shown in the photos, but hardly noticeable once in use.

Great upgrade for non-sports wheels with the round airbag. Airbag not included with the wheel.

$400 ono, located Templestowe Lower, Vic. Can ship at buyers cost.

Thanks!

Hey man,
Is the rim thicker than the standard three spoke with round airbag?
I have a late '03 with dark woodgrain - I miss the chunkier feel of my last car, but I am not sure how this wheel suits my naturbraun leather and dark woodgrain.

If you already have the 3-spoke, you have the M-Sport steering wheel, which is the same as this. The only difference this has with that wheel is the tri-colour stitching. If you want a thicker wheel, you'd have to go to an upholstery shop.

Source: I have both wheels, M-Sport and an M3.

Thanks for the reply. I've got a standard 3-spoke, not an M Sport. Does this comment still apply? I'll attach a picture below

Ah, then it does not. It (the wheel in the OP) is a bit thicker than that. That's the standard sports wheel.

Wheel on offer makes the car feel a whole lot better. One of the best bang for buck mods you can do. Get it if you can and enjoy! Plus the seller is A+++++++++++

Thanks for the sage advice - very helpful.
I'm becoming convinced to buy. I will smash open the piggy bank and see if I can scrape up enough.

Will contact OP when ready.
