2008 M3 has a thicker steering wheel than 2011?

Test drove a 2011 E92 M3 with DCT yesterday and the first thing I noticed when I sat in the car is the steering wheel is not as thick as mine?? I told the CA and he felt both and was surprised to see this as well. Noticeably thicker in my car. What do you guys know about that? Was there a change at some point? I'm wondering if it thickens as it breaks in... maybe the stitching is really tight at first or something... or MAYBE DCT gets a thinner wheel than 6MT?

as for the DCT, it's pretty cool. I'm going back on forth on trying to figure out if I should get a 2012 E92 or just keep my car and wait to see what's in store 6-12 months from now. I'll keep you posted.
