I procured a turbo steering wheel but there was no boss or hub. Anyone out there have any ideas on what will fit or where to get the rest ?

I recently picked up a Turbo wheel and a 320is sport wheel, both with hubs, and it looks like they use the same hub. I'll check in the am and report back if they are the same.

Thanks James, I have been wondering if they are the same.

Appears to be the same hub for both. They have the same part number on the hub. Note the collapsible sides of the hubs have different patterns, but everything else like splines, horn contact, and mounting holes look to be the same.

Both of those are e21 hubs.  The 2002 uses a single contact on the wheel and the contact “ring” is mounted in the steering column

This is what your looking for and the part # stamp for the turbo wheel. Good luck, a real hub can be harder to find than the wheel! Be prepared to open your wallet wide to get a real one. 

 I’m not aware of any aftermarket options. Maybe someone will chime in with something that will work.

Nice looking wheel by the way! I love mine.

What do folks use the mount the 320is sport wheel? Shouldn't we be able to use that option for the turbo wheel? It might not be an authentic turbo hub but should work, right?

The most common way to install an E21 wheel in an 02 is to also use the E21 hub. It's convenient because the wheel and hub are typically sold together as one assembly.

The guy to ask is JohnP. The guy could write a book on vintage steering wheels. Shoot him a message or maybe he will chime in on this thread.
