well, i have the steering wheel that came with the sport pkg but still it feels nothing like a m3's, but other than a good feel, is there anything else that's so great about the m3 steering wheel?

I installed mine last week. I have to say it FEELS AWESOME!!!

There is no difference between the sport wheel and the M wheel other than the feeling. The ring is thicker and softer. The "nubs" are in the perfect 10/2 position. It is definitely one of my favorite mods. All of the controls work, stereo, cruise control, etc. Install was a piece of cake. Took about 20 minutes using the DIY at 330ci.com

Having said that, modding is all about personal preference. A man's gotta do what a man's gotta do. For me, after feeling a friend's M steering wheel and finding the part number for the wheel with all black stitching, it was a no brainer. Definitely worth the $340. IMO.

Check the for sale section. I saw a couple on sale there.

Get it! Especially if it's not a money issue. The feel is amazing compared to the stock sports wheel. The two don't even compare. For the first few weeks after you have it installed it feels strange, but right. Like wearing a pair or ill-fitting shoes for a long time and then getting some brand new, custom fit sneakers. You know it's what you should have had all along. If you have step, get the paddle-shift retro-fit.

If you're unsure, drop by Assael and ask them to let you feel the wheel on an M3. You'll be pleased.

thanks everyone, so how much is consider a good deal for both part and labor, one shop told me they can install it for $50 and give me 20% off on the part, is it a good deal?
