Thread: M-Tech 1 steering wheel doesn't fit on '95 525i any ideas why?

    Default M-Tech 1 steering wheel doesn't fit on '95 525i any ideas why?

    I have a problem here I was wondering why doesn't the mtech 1 steering wheel fit onto my car, is there some sort of hub or spacer I need to put to make it fit. As I tried to put it on it doesn't seem to reach the shaft/spline and by the looks of it the steering wheel hole seems a bit small to fit onto it.

    Pic of what the mtech 1 steering wheel looks like



    Any ideas would be great. And just by curiosity would a mtech 2 steering just bolt onto the '95 525i. Thanks.

    Default Neither of those bolt on to the 95 525....

    the shaft size is totally different on a 95 525 than was meant for use by m-tech I & II wheels

    Is there like a hub adaptor of some sort that would go on the wheel to make it fit?

    Nope. And you also have to be careful with the M-Technic-II wheels as well because the earlier run (if you look at both runs side by side, you'll note that the earlier version has the "striaght arms and the later model one has the "droopy" arms..) will also not fit. Basically, you want the M-Technic-II made for the E36 M3....
