2009 BMW M3: Sporty Steering Wheel Part 2

January 25, 2010


I reported last week how our long-term 2009 BMW 750 has a sporty steering wheel.
Our 2009 BMW M3's wheel is even sportier.

Measuring 365 x 360 mm, the pic shows how the small-diameter wheel is almost perfectly circular, a bit unusual as most steering wheels are slightly oval shape. This sized wheel would probably be too small for larger cars like the 7-series, but for our M3 it's fine.

One thing I don't care for is the cross-section -- it's a bit too thick for my medium-sized hands.
Most people I know like the thick cross-section; it's popular on many sports cars.

I prefer a medium diameter cross-section (as on our BMW 750).

How about you?
