Our friends there just build what they are directed to build--such as 3 spoke steering wheels for Z3's throughout the entire world except for (you guessed it) the good old United States.

G'Day Fred.
There is actually a very good reason for NOT supplying the 3 spoke wheels in the USA... The 3 spoke steering wheel has a much smaller airbag specifically designed for use in countries where wearing seatbelts is compulsory (like Australia for example).
