I talked to my SA, found out the fit would not be perfect...

"Topic: Performance Steering Wheel for M3 with DCT

... (performance steering wheel) desinged for cars with steptronic paddles, not the MDCT (Dual cluth) type. The mounting holes are the same between the two type. The only downside is that the trim panels don't line up, so some of the metal/wiring can be seen, but only from behind the wheel..."

The performance wheels seems overkill and unnecessary for 99.99% of drivers. You have shift lights on the tach anyway [DCT].

GTS wheel FTW

The paddles are not a PERFECT fit, but you will never notice it since it is on the opposite side of the wheel. I don't always turn it on, but it's fun on PCH at night, and the G force readout is cool, though I'm not sure how accurate.

Suede covered wheels are a bad idea in a daily driver. The oil from your hands will turn the suede shiny after a few months of use. The only solution is to wear driving gloves

Firstly, yes you are correct that the cutout for the paddles and the m3 paddles don't line up but they fit. However, you will not see any wires I assure you. Even if you did it's practically impossible to even get a good enough view to see the wires even from outside the car with the wheel turned full lock. Hope that helps.

I just bought my performance wheel without the electronics from Tischer last month. DCT works fine. It shipped the day I ordered it.
