Question What to do with my custom M3 carbon fiber steering wheel?

I was hoping the experts here can help me out - do you guys know if the steering wheel in the e9x cars can also fit the F80 m3 car?

Found this steering wheel buried in my room - originally intended for my M3 I totally forgot about it and was buried in my room.

Debating if I should sell it or keep it for my future M3?

I have no problem holding onto it if I know it will fit the F80 M3 chassis

Gorgeous Steering wheel

You might want to check out realoem.com and see if the two parts are compatible. I dont think a dealership would know.

hey guys, correct me if I'm wrong but my friend told me the only difference between the DCT wheel and 6MT wheel is there are holes on the back of the DCT to allow for the paddles to be attached so he said you just need to cut the holes to make it work as a DCT wheel?

The wheel in the F80 is different such that even the airbag shape is different. Unless you plan to use a E9x airbag on a F80 (No idea if the plugs are the same), you're better off leaving it as there's a difference in the buttons on the F80 wheel as well (2 M mode buttons, placement).

I think the plugs for the buttons buttons and airbag might be different in the f80 as well as the shape of the airbag. And since you might need to cut holes to fit the DCT paddles sure you can mount the paddles in the steering wheel, I would suggest picking up a new one that fits the f80 and selling this one.

Much better ideas. The buttons and layout is completely different between the 2 cars. Love the M stripe at the top, that looks great.
