M Steering Wheel Removal

Quick question for all. Been digging around trying to find any technical information I can about replacing a E92 M3 Steering wheel with a quick release wheel. I've heard rumblings about sensors in the wheel that may or may not cause the car to go into limp mode with a non-functional steering wheel. Any info, pointers, websites would be GREATLY appreciated! Thanks..

I haven't read anything about them causing the car to go into limp mode but not 100% sure...

I'd check with VAC
