Request photos of your current steering wheel

So I have a 2001 325i sedan and I absolutely hate the steering wheel. My question is, Are the steering wheels interchangeable?
I wanted to replace mine with a much sportier looking one like the one of the m3 or something similar where the middle part is triangular.

I am new to the E46 as I always driven and worked on E30s. Can you give me some suggestions

There's a bunch of reasons why it's likely no one ever replied to your request. Firstly this is the classified buy/sell area so specifically meant for ads, and also the exterior section and steering wheel = interior.

Second, most people have been on this site so long they would never stoop to answering such a simple question and merely condescend you and tell you to use search function.

Truthfully you should find everything you need to know that way but for the most part the swap from oem non sport (first pic below w/4 "spokes") to oem sport or M3 (sport is second pictured below) is pretty srridghtforward.

I'm actually in the process of doing this I one myself, just waiting for newer wheel to arrive. The one pictured below is for sale, it's all there but a little used up in that grip is flaking and butting stencils ared faded. Drop me a pm if interested - and Lexus know how your project goes and take pics.

Edit - wont let me uploads pics sorry

Here's the oem wheel followed by the sport (3 spokes).

Let me know of you might be interested in mine.
