the last style.

but if you are going for performance an aftermarket wheel would do you much better from what I have heard.

it's not an alpina steering wheel, it's just a bmw steering wheel.

put an alpina roundel in it and theres your alpina steering wheel.

the euro wheel has 3 spokes, the US one has 4. and all alpina e36's are euro so you get the three spoke.

okay, first of all, this is a daily driver, not a racecar... second, its delmarco driving... keep it as is...you wont have any airbag issuses... why would you go with a racing type steering wheel when you dont need it, and you will lose an airbag(or just a lot of money)

save your money

The Momo one would look really good if you had some Stainless steel in the car..
