no... it just means you have to buy a new airbag as well

plus it means if you swap and get the ///M3 wheel then no-one can assure you that the airbag will function properly (let's hope you don't ever have to find out)

yes you could buy the ZHP Alcantara wheel and a new airbag... I'm just letting you know that physically it can bolt up to the steering column and it can plug in... however I can't say that the airbag will function properly (a disclaimer if you will), and those who've done it have (fortunately) not found out yet...

There is a difference in the airbags, 1 stage vs. 2 stage, so we're not certain how a 2-stage airbag will function running through your car which is equipped for a 1-stage airbag...
