Is this Steering wheel authentic BMW ?

Found a good deal on a mtech steering wheel on ebay. Says it is oem and has the part number. Is this a real oem wheel? The reason i ask it is has perf leather and alcantara suade at the top with tri color stitching?

I already purchased it but havent paid yet. Any help would be appreciated.

The part number listed in the auction has been superceded by #32307839114 which lists as an MSport wheel - shows the perforated leather on diagram but has no details as to Alcantera or Tri-Stitching. Lists for $427.78 @ Tischer, so you did get a slight price break.

Although I have never heard of the perf/alcantera combo, that doesn't mean it doesn't exist. I would say it is a true oem wheel.

I have the MSport wheel with perf/smooth Napa leather + tri stitching & love it

The seller AGE Styling sells authentic OEM products, not sure where s/he sources them though. Many of the old-timers (when E90 first came out) bought the M-tech steering wheel (nappa leather, half perforated, tri-colour stitching) from him before US dealerships (e.g. Tischer) made it available to order.

1 quik, you're like the go to source for BMW information. I appreciate your willingness to help answer some of my questions the past month! I did wind up getting a front bracket as well, thanks to you pointing me in the right direction there as well.

Thanks! I feel good about it now then. I just wanted to make sure I hadn't gotten scammed. The asking price was $440 + 60 shipping and I offered $315 and it was accepted. I was like "What did i just do?!"

I just bought a wheel from him (2 months ago).

He is a legit seller and the wheels are OEM. I am guessing North America doesn't get all the different selections as Europe does.
