Steering Wheel Identification


Recommended Posts

Curious if anybody can help to identify this wheel that’s in my ‘02. Looks similar to an mtech1, but a little different.  I originally thought it was an early e30 wheel but it’s not. I really like it but can’t find anything matching in the various searches I am running,,.

Possibly not a bmw wheel, but it sure does look like one.

As others have said, it’s the M1 wheel with the leather removed and the wrong center cap. 
The part number for the cap/emblem is 32332206203. I believe they’re still available.

Does anybody recognize the symbol in picture 2? Petri logo?

Thanks all!  That put me on the right track.

While researching further I discovered a post on mye28 explaining that the M1 and M535i wheels were slightly different, with the M1 wheel being a little smaller in diameter.  I found the part number on mine and it is the M1 variant (32332205848). I’ve discovered a few nice surprises (this relatively rare wheel, big brakes front and back)  in this car and some not-so-nice (rotted subframe mounts). 

thanks @bob02 for the cap part number, I’ll try and dig one up!


anybody have recommendations on a reliable place to have this re-covered?

    BMW Neue Klasse - a birth of a Sports Sedan

    Unveiling of the Neue Klasse Unveiled in 1961, BMW 1500 sedan was a revolutionary concept at the outset of the '60s. No tail fins or chrome fountains. Instead, what you got was understated and elegant, in a modern sense, exciting to drive as nearly any sports car, and yet still comfortable for four.   The elegant little sedan was an instant sensation. In the 1500, BMW not only found the long-term solution to its dire business straits but, more importantly, created an entirely new

    History of the BMW 2002 and the 02 Series

    In 1966, BMW was practically unknown in the US unless you were a touring motorcycle enthusiast or had seen an Isetta given away on a quiz show.  BMW’s sales in the US that year were just 1253 cars.  Then BMW 1600-2 came to America’s shores, tripling US sales to 4564 the following year, boosted by favorable articles in the Buff Books. Car and Driver called it “the best $2500 sedan anywhere.”  Road & Track’s road test was equally enthusiastic.  Then, BMW took a cue from American manufacturers,

    The BMW 2002 Production Run

    BMW 02 series are like the original Volkswagen Beetles in one way (besides both being German classic cars)—throughout their long production, they all essentially look alike—at least to the uninitiated:  small, boxy, rear-wheel drive, two-door sedan.  Aficionados know better.   Not only were there three other body styles—none, unfortunately, exported to the US—but there were some significant visual and mechanical changes over their eleven-year production run.   I’ve extracted t
