BMW Pefrormance Steering Wheel on a 08' 328i, Compatible???

I purchased a BMW Performance Steering Wheel last week and I am currently having it installed by a BMW Tech right now. How ever there has been bumps along the road with the steering wheel. Number one, my 328i is a Premium Package car and not a sports package vehicle. Last friday, I have been told by the BMW tech that the airbags will not fit in the performance steering wheel. However, the dealership called BMW directly and they have been informed that the steering wheel is only sold to 1 and 3 series vehicles with a Sports Package but it does not say anything on the website or catalogs that the performance steering wheel is only for sports package. Good news is BMW sent an airbag that would fit in the steering wheel and switches for free to make it work for my car..

As of today, I just got a call from the tech that they still need to keep my car in cause none of the lights on the steering wheel is not working and the tech is getting tech support from BMW to find out the reason why its not working.. My question to anybody is will the performance steeringwheel work on my car? I have been getting the roundabout with the specific details on my car. A installation that would of taken only two hours is taking four days now..
