Steering wheel Question

Hi everyone, I've been searching all over trying to find out if I can retrofit a 2014 f10 steering wheel on a 2011 f10, my car is a 2011 535i non m sport and I wanna retrofit a 2014 m sport wheel is this possible, if yes do I need to do any special wiring? 2nd question dose the m airbag use the same wire connection as the non my sport , if anyone done this successful can you please point me in the right direction thanks in advance.

It is possible but somewhat expensive. I personally retrofitted 2013 regular Steering Wheel with M5/M6 LCI wheel on my 2015 535xi. Everything is plug and play without too much trouble. You do however need to go to ww.realoem.com and identify all pieces that are required to be purchased to make a complete assembly (i.e steering Control Module, trim pieces, air bag, paddles, vibration unit, heating/non-heating, etc.), unless the wheel you buy comes with all of it. A new Steering Wheel Control Module need to support all the features that your current vehicle supports currently and can have more but not less, otherwise some features will be inactive. Depends on a new wheel your Air Bag may not fit, therefore buying a new one will be required.
