BMW E30 Steering Wheel options, OEM Guide

OEM BMW E30 Steering Wheel options:

Below are the steering wheel options offered on all BMW E30 models throughout its production run from 1982 - 1994. Only one steering wheel design was used for airbag equipped models. The remaining five offerings were all non airbag equipped models. The Mtech 1 steering wheel was offered in two diameters, 370mm and 385mm. The 370mm wheel options is more rare, therefore more desirable.

It is important to note if you are switching from an airbag wheel to a non airbag wheel (or vise versa), the turn indicator and wiper stalks are different. The airbag steering wheels sit further away from the stalk mounting points, thus have a different bend in the stalks to bring the stalks closer to the wheel. If you want to swap steering wheels from airbag to non, ensure to switch the stalks that match the wheel type to ensure proper offset distance. A non airbag wheel with airbag stalks will be closer and your hand will likely interfere with the stalks when turning the steering wheel.
