In 2005, BMW Canada sold some 325i marked as executive edition - basically premium package + 17" wheels.

Cars looking good. "executive edition" sounds pretty strange...maybe on a 7 series?

Does that look like an M3 steering wheel to you guys? Or is it a regular vinyl one?

You kill me with the this steering wheel thing :-)
Would you like to see it in person - it is not M3 wheel but leather sport wheel.
It can be made to look like M3 wheel by installing M lower bezel.

LOL I'm sorry, I dont mean to thread jack its just Ive just never heard of Non M non Zhp coming with different wheel. IT looks so different from mine. It looks like a regular sports package wheel.

heres a pic of my wheel, I see it everyday thats why I think yours looks so different.

Edit: I just did some research, ok dude there are only 2 types of wheels that use the round airbag. The regular sport wheel which you have, and the m wheel which comes in leather, suede and comes in different stitch patterns. Your wheel does not say M on it, the wheel is noticeably thinner therefore you have a regular sport package wheel.

You are not the only person that asked about the weird "executive package" :-)
You have m3 wheel and my wheel is a sport leather wheel, hence different yet similar look. Your wheel is more puffy and mine is just wrapped in leather.
This was part of the executive edition - leather wheel, leather shifter and leather handbrake handle etc.
