I do have a rain sensor, light sensor + multi function steering wheel

'59 as in second half of 2009 UK registered :)

I just put my VIN into:
http://www.bmwarchive.org/vin/bmw-vin-decoder.html" onclick="window.open(this.href);return false;

S248A
Lenkradheizung Steering wheel heater

Looking at realoem it looks like my wheel is 32306795573 but I have paddles. Manual transmission heated sport wheel is 32306795571

It doesn't look like it's an option with the m-sport wheel.

Hopefully that gives you something to go on

Wow, they do exist! :spotman:

Can you go to realoem, type your VIN and search for 'steering column'. It is called "Switch unit steering column" to be exact. So far, i found no e80-series BMW that had the option S248=Yes (heating) and S521A=Yes (rain sensor) and S540A=Yes (cruise control) ... Can you maybe check that for me? Thanks!

Edit, i did found an E92 steering column with all options, but i am unsure if this would work ... (http://www.realoem.com/bmw/showparts.do ... fg=35&hl=7" onclick="window.open(this.href);return false;)

But you said to have a rain sensor, this one doesn't (S521=No).

I do have a rain sensor. I couldn't find one with heater and the rain sensor!

*edit*

OK I think it's probably part number: 61319169753

http://www.realoem.com/bmw/showparts.do ... fg=35&hl=7" onclick="window.open(this.href);return false;

All of those have the the heater (S248A=Yes) at the very top, do you notice how it has the i (in italics), then it goes down the list adding cruise, rain sensor, adaptive cruise etc.

*second edit*

http://www.etk.cc/bmw/EN/search/selectG ... 1319169753" onclick="window.open(this.href);return false;

that give you a pretty clear answer

But this one is for E90-series BMW. So your car wasn't equipped with either of the options from the factory in that case? Or would that mean that the E90-series steering column would fit on the E80-series?

You're not really understanding what I'm saying

http://www.realoem.com/bmw/showparts.do ... g=61&fg=35" onclick="window.open(this.href);return false;

Look at that page. All for the e82. All of the switch clusters on that page support the heated wheel.

The difference is cruise, rain sensor etc.

I'm almost certain my car will have 61319169753, which supports the heated wheels and a rain sensor, not cruise control.

So 61319169753 is the option for:
S248A=Yes (heated)
S521A=Yes (rain)
S540A=No (cruise)
S544A=No (cruise with brake)

Yeah, totally understand you. I have cruise control and automatic wipers and would not want to loose them, especially not the cruise control!

So, still wondering ... would this one fit/work? 61319169755

Might do, as you don't have a rear wiper either.

How you mean, might do? I would think it works, as i have been reading that E90 and E80-series usually have interchangeable parts!

Yup, they're usually interchangable, so it should work.
