I miss that wheel from my M3C. The M240 wheel is nicely shaped but very strange feeling alleged leather.

I'll show up. I'm sure there are some bolts that I could neglect to tighten on that car.

I thought the buttons were weird at first when I got my F30, but now on the 5-series I think they are fine. I actually like the wheel and how I can scroll through presets, song tracks, address book, etc.

I haven't really used the steering wheel buttons enough to form a thorough opinion yet. But I also like the little wheel/roller.
