    Hi all,

    Does anyone know where I can buy a slip ring for an E36?

    Main dealer wants £103 + vat for what is basically a bunch of wires coiled in a circle.

    Cheers.

    Yes Steve, it's part of the wheel that controls the electronics like horn, buttons, etc...no. 2 below as an example.



    OP, maybe a breakers would be your best bet. Try Quarry Motors on here
