So I also agree that flat bottom wheels are gimmicky. However, the RS4 steering wheel just looks awesome.



Just look at the perforated leather and that beautiful sculpting. I appreciate the tastefully thin looking spokes as opposed to the chunky spokes on the BMW M wheel. It's more like the previous M3 steering wheel really.

I personally think it would be perfect if it was round, but I'd rather have the RS4 steering wheel over the current M steering wheel.

This one is nice too:
Cool looking wheel, now if only we could change the rest of the car that surrounds it.
I really don't like it. I prefer all M Sport steering wheels to this

Ya but the fact that its the same wheel as in the other new M cars ... one would surmise that it makes sense this would be the production wheel. Which, if i may say, is pretty sh*tty
Oh so you're just generally shitting on anything that's not a E46 or E90
Brash assumption but no, I've own every 3 series since e36 and as a human I've just got my opinions and wishes. Not shitting on it just sayin I don't like the new M steering wheels theyve developed. There's no sport in it what so ever when u see it compared to say a flat bottom design from Audi - that's badass.
You mean the same wheel that's in the GTI, GLI, Golf R, and every other "Sporty" VWAG product?

Now look at all the cars in the other photos and tell me: which of them has that wheel?
If this turns out to be a BMW plant lying about his/her affiliation with the company, it would be a new low for a company I've felt so passionate about for over 2 decades.

The turn of events surrounding dissemination of information on this very topic smells pretty fishy to me.

Maybe BMW is trying to capitalize on the much hyped C8 that DOESN'T offer a manual by "leaking" confirmation photos of the new M3?

The manual is so niche now. I get the appeal but not for me.

The year is 2029.

The steering wheel is so niche now that the AI has taken over the overall driving experience. It can do Nurburgring lap times better than any human can.

I get the appeal of wanting to steer for yourself, but not for me.

Agree but seriously doubt they will make the biggest expected car ugly.
