    Hi

    I have just bought a E39 530i sport, it is on a 51 plate and wanted to change the rather dated looking steering wheel to the 2002 model which is a bit smaller and more modern looking is this easy to do?

    Also the car has heated front seats but are not electrically adjustable am I right in thinking that if I got hold of heated electrically adjustable seats from another E39 they would work fine?

    Thanks for any help and advice!

    Regards

    Mudasser

    You would need to wire in the seats as I don't think the loom is there for the heated seats I'm afraid.

    As for the steering wheel, is the airbag the same shape on your steering wheel compared to the new wheel you want to fit?
