If you are retaining the airbag unit from your M steering wheel no coding is necessary. Also consider when fitting with SA 248 (heated steering wheel) the heating function will no longer work.

I have this wheel, it's a great wheel. I rarely use the digital display though, but the heft and material is fantastic.

yes. It's all in the install instructions.

Are you buying the wheel brand new?

I would say, if you don't care much about the electronic features, buy the standard alcantara M Performance wheel for half the price. It gives you the same feel.

Indeed that is what I head on my F32 for a while. Then I traded it in (was about 1 year used) for a brand new M4 steering wheel as I wanted to have heated steering wheel amongst other. The reason also being I have always liked the smooth wallnappa leather of the original M wheels. The M Performance one sure feels more grippy and gives one an incredible feeling of control. My F06 on the other hand still has the original factory sport steering wheel and I will wait until it is more worn before upgrading.
