Anyone got M performance steering wheel?

Hi,

Anyone here has an M performance steering wheel?

I have a regular sport steering wheel.

I'm debating to upgrade to Msport or M performance steering wheel.

Which one is fatter? Please give us some reviews if you have one.

Thanks

Thanks for the feedback. Have you compared it with the M performance steering wheel below?

M Performance one is much fatter. I have one.

To be honest, I tested the normal one when I test drove, and prefer that for 90% of driving situations... I'd stick with what you have got, more comfortable and predictable, unless you intend racing about around s-bends all the time

Do you have the msport or the M performance? Or both?

Your car seems to have an msport package.

I think they look silly in such a big saloon.. Out of keeping with the interior. IMHO

Aha, M Sport. But I think the M Performance size/feel is probably even worse in some respects because of the slippery look/feel.

All I am saying is that I tested the normal one and then ordered the M Sport, but prefer the normal one. I think the Performance one will also be a 'look funky' but be impractical for day to day driving IMHO

That's what I am afraid of since I have a "luxury-theme" interior with cinnamon leather & anthracite wood.

I just got a 528i with M-Sport, the thickness is perfect, not too thick, great for daily driving.
And the leather is so smooth, prob Napa leather, similar to my SL55 custom steering wheel
