    General E46 Forum
    Hi guys, I have a 318i (2000) with the 'dumb' steering wheel. I am now looking to replace it with something fancier. A guy from another forum told me that if I buy his steering wheel with multifunction, my cruise control will work as well, because all E46s have this as a feature, I will only...
