I have a 98 528 with sport suspension and I DO have a heated steering wheel (it is absolutely worthwhile). I don't exactly remember my ordering options but do recall that both the sports package and the heated seats/wheel option were separate and did not conflict.
: I think that if you can find a way to do this, there's a lot of us with E39 Sports (528 AND 540) who'd like to do the same.
: : Is there any technical reason why the heated steering wheel (part of the cold weather package on the 540iA) can't be put on to a 540i 6spd? I assume it's not an option because they want you to have the "sport" wheel, which doesn't do heating. Could I buy a non-sport wheel and with a little extra wiring have warm hands this winter?
