M2C 6MT with a MP CS Alcantara Steering Wheel?

Does the M Performance CS Alcantara Steering Wheel fit on the M2C?

Is the M Performance CS Alcantara Steering Wheel only for DCT equipped cars?

With my spec being black leather/orange stitch and piano black trim, the idea of having a blue strip at the top of the M Performance Alcantara Steering Wheel doesn't seem appealing. The CS wheel looks overall cleaner with no-break in the Alcantara and a neutral-color 12 o'clock strip too.

It would be cool to see someone create a CS-inspired Alcantara interior trim as a retrofit option for the M2C. Even a CS-inspired rear seat delete option would be nice as well as an Alcantara roof lining. One step at a time though.

The CS / DTM steering wheel that is pictured will work on manual cars as well.

Alternatively we also offer the BMW M Performance steering wheel with an option to have the center stripe in a different color.



If you are looking for full alcantara then BMW does offer the M Performance version 1 steering wheel. This also fits the M2c.

Do you have a photo of the cut-outs on the back of the CS steering wheel (or any MP wheel if the cut-outs are the same)?

I'm hesitant to have any bright color on the 12 o'clock strip.

I stand corrected, there are no cut outs on the back. You would be able to transfer everything over from your stock wheel to the any of the M Performance wheel.

Here is a photo of the DTM / CS steering wheel.



Personally would go with the GTS steering wheel as it would match the orange stitching a bit more.
