M-Technic Steering Wheel Swap

Hey guys, have a quick question...and I have tried repeated searches.

I have a 2011 E90 sedan with cold weather package. It currently has the stock non-sport wheel / heated option (which I know cannot be swapped). I purchased an E90 M-Technic wheel (32307839114) and will need to piece together the rest of the items.

I know I need a round / sport airbag. Will any E90 round airbag do or will it need to be specific years?

Also, the multi-function buttons...the non-sport wheel does not have the square inserts to fit the sport wheel / bezel. I don't think I can directly swap my non-sport buttons over. Where can I find the sport multi-function buttons and again, do these need to be year specific?

Thanks guys!

You'll need any E90 round airbag. But I'd recommend getting a brand new one

Do you know what part number I would need for this wheel or are all E90 round airbags the same?

Here is the wheel that I ordered:

The most recent airbag revision as of 01/2017:

P/N 32306884672

Be absolutely 100% sure the airbag that you get is that part number. You don't want to accidentally get a pre-Takata bag.

I have navigation. These ECS buttons look identical to mine but ECS says they are only for E90s, up to 3/2010 and without navigation. Is there a difference between the ECS buttons and my current stock buttons?

ECS Multifunction buttons: (https://www.ecstuning.com/b-genuine-...s/61319125343/)

And here are the current buttons on my wheel...

pianoman90 there are a host of buttons that look almost 100% identical, but BMW states different fitment, we base our fitment on what BMW says. If you need help sourcing the buttons shoot me a PM with some info on your car and I'll take a look at etk.
