Sport Steering Wheel

Anyone swap out the E70 stock steering wheel for the Sport or M Sport versions? Is it a difficult job?

You need T30 torx,socket 16mm and an airbag reset tool for backup.And,of course,the steering wheel with the airbag.

I have a M sport steering wheel available without the airbag. controls are included. Im asking for $275 plus shipping.

BTW... i swapped the steering wheel three times. To a 2006 4.8is E53, a 2007 4.8i E70 and 2011 50i E70. I always disconnect the battery and never had to reset the airbags.

Thanks NY. I found one on ebay with the airbag but for a lot more money. I will check the cost of the airbag and let you know if I am interested. Did you swap the steering wheels yourself?

Anytime. Yes. I did the swap myself in all three. Its relatively easy. Just make sure you disconnect the battery. The most involved was my E53 2006 4.8is. You have to also change the clockspring with the E46 clockspring. As for the E70....very easy. Took me under 20 minutes.

Let me know. Its boxed and ready to go.

If you have the sports package I would look into this.
