E36 M3 three spoke steering wheel swap
 
I've been thinking for awhile about swapping my ugly 4 spoke bmw badge-less steering wheel for the 3 spoke. my question is, is it worth it? how much of a pain is it? are there other things that need to be switched other than the wheel itself? I've found a wheel for $180, will there be need for other expenses?thanks in advance.

I'd say its definitely worth it, although I haven't gotten one for mine yet. Its on my wish list! Waiting for one to pop up in the classifieds here.

Definitely worth it. Just swapped to a euro 3 spoke two weeks ago.
It improves the look of the car, and comfort, for me, went up.
The install was not bad, just follow the DIY posted above.

I did my a month or so ago. It is a smaller diameter wheels and is noticeably different, not in a bad way and it takes a few days to get used to. The link to Frankies it very helpful.

$150 for the wheel, airbag, and clock spring? You got a slamming deal my friend.

The swap is 100% worth it. The 4 spoke looks ridiculous. The 3 spoke looks better and the smaller diameter is more functional. I'll never go back to my 4 spoke. I burned it and pissed on the ashes.

Lol. I've never liked the 4 spoke. I won the bid on eBay for the 3 spoke.

Again, make sure you're getting the airbag and clock spring with that.
