LCD Performance Steering Wheel Parts V1 Control Unit and Harness

I didn't get any help from e90post so I'm reaching out to m3post. I recently bought a LCD performance steering wheel from a member on the forum. The wheel came off from his car that he recently just sold to a dealer and did not remove the Control Module out of the car. I bought it thinking hoping itíll be easy to obtain the parts but turned out they donít manufacture the parts anymore. Also, the V2 module can not be bought on its own. Iím guessing that Iím not the first to have this issue and was hoping thereís a solution out there. The wheel came with a coil spring cartridge, but Iím missing the Retrofit Cable, Control Unit, 2-pin socket casing, and a Miniature connector. The part numbers are 61120444598-harness and 61350444602-control unit. Would anyone know where to buy these? I tried tisher and ordered it but the inventory is showing "0". So I'm not quite sure how thats going to turn out. Thanks everyone in advance.

Unfortunately, there is nothing you can do. I tried this route last year to no avail.

Same thing happened to me when I turned in my 335i. My SA said to buy replacement modules would be $1800, which is more than the wheel?!? Luckily I spotted my old car in the car wash at the dealership and quickly grabbed the wires before the new owner drove off with them.

I guess its seems like its been out of stock since last year and none has came in yet....I'm pretty sure its not coming in. I wonder how BMW is going to take care of people that have the wheel and needed new modules.

Any updates to this topic? Was looking at buying a wheel without the harness/control module but I'm not really interested in using it as a paperweight....
