Well, I just got my Tri Color "M" Steering Wheel from the same vender off ebay. Only took four days to get it from Poland. Now I'll be doing the same paddle-shifter surgery, I mean mod.
I've fabricated several one-off mods on my G35 so I hopefully I want have any trouble with this.




Rob...Thanks for trailblazing this mod, and proving it could be done. I've always loved this wheel, can't wait to get in on.. I'll post pics when I'm finished.

Does anyone know if the e46 & e92 wheels are the same? I think they are, but I wouldn't want to bet the farm on it. I am wondering if the e46 wheel set up for SMG paddles might not be an easier mod for our e92 step paddles.

What exactly is the paddle shifter mod? What has to be done to the wheel?

For those who have the M3 steering wheel is this really how thick it is?

Picture taken from E92 M3. Please confirm thickness

That is a weird angle - it is like 25% thinker than the stock sport wheel, that pic makes it looks twice as thick!

Grabbed a sport steering wheel at my friends shop yesterday and it seems to be quite a bit thinner than the perforated M-Tech wheel.

My impression: Regular < Sport (10%) < Perforated M-Tech (20%)
