Unique mod but I personally dont feel the triangle shape looks "right" in the E39. The wheel itself is very nice though.

So the E70 ///M wheel and airbag will work fully with E39 - interesting......did you get this from your contacts in Europe, or can it be purchased from dealers in the US? I assume E53 will work as well?

Saw this in person, it looks even better than in pics. Goes great with all of Slimm's alcantara goodies in his interior.

Looks great,
I have a 2000 set up and in my normal/comfortable setting I can't see the scrolling letters/warnings on the bottom of the display
OR I can't see the top of the speedo/tack.......does this wheel allow you more up/down visibility if you will. I really would like to change wheels but don'y know what year/model to change too. Any advice?

p.s.
I'm sitting down and will try not to faint....how $$$$$ is this swap?
