Performance steering wheel

Has anyone installed the performance steering wheel v1 on there 335xi. Both Revc and I have put them on but our dashs light up with all of these error codes. Maybe our awd systems dont allow it, but i dont see why not.

I've got one on my car and I also had all the errors pop up. When I pulled the clock spring I accidentally moved the steering angle sensor and then I got all of the dash lights and the car was in RWD mode and the car had no traction control and the headlights were all over the place at night. I'm not sure why but a week later the angle sensor issue fixed itself (seriously, no idea how it happened) and the headlights behaved and the traction control came back, but then I found that my transfer case motor had also gone bad. After replacing the motor the wheel works great and the car is error free.

I know it sounds totally ridiculous but that's what happened...

^ Yup! That's me. I just looked at your username again and remembered you right before I read your post. I wish I had better advice for you on this, but it was really random how mine started working.

At the end of the day with all of the bs they wanted to charge me it was north of $700. That was one dealer so i called another one and they were trying to tell me bmw didnt make this steering wheel and they couldnt install it. So i called another one and they said they will call me back and its been like 9 days one. I called about 6-7 dealers and none of them know what im talking about, they are like performance steering wheel?? I swear if i knew this steering wheel as gonna give me such a pain in the ass i wont of purchased it. Its in a box in my trunk just chillin.....

+1, I had an m3 steering wheel on my car since it was like a month old (and had no problems or errors after I installed it), but came across a deal I couldn't pass up on the perf wheel, so I decided to upgrade.

You can recalibrate the steering angle sensor via coding cable or a Bavarian technique cable. That will remove errors associated with the steering sensor.

This is a good idea. I was thinking this was possible but before I got the chance to try it the errors were out.

The BMW Performance sport steering wheel I with high-grip alcantara always keeps you on the right track. Absolute highlights include one OLED and two LED displays, with keys on the thumbrests activating three modes: EfficientDynamics for a fuel-saving drive, Sport with a stopwatch, consumption and g-meter and Race with a stopwatch for lap times and acceleration measurements (e.g. a 0100 km/h sprint). Keep your eye on the road for an out-of-the-ordinary driving experience.


Thanks,
Japanese used car auction
