    Will this AMG steering wheel fit 500E?

    Just curious - will this AMG wheel fit 500E? Is this proper and era-correct (mid-'90) wheel? Just curious as this one just popped up close to the place where I live... Seller claims perfect condition, both wheel and leather airbag.

    Need a photo of the rear of the steering wheel, of the mounting area.

    I sent a request for a photo to the seller, also for part # from the wheel. I'll report as soon as I get it.

    It appears to be a modified W210 steering wheel.
    I would bet it fits. You will probably have to transfer the horn contact ring.

    He claims it is an original AMG wheel, not aftermarket modified one. We will see what the p/n number says...
    BTW - what wheel do I have? I know it sounds silly but I really never asked PO what wheel he fitted, I just like it as is, especially that it's in mint condition. The diameter is 390 mm (measured). See below:

    Looks like a standard W124 wheel with added wood trim.

    Isn't standard W124 wheel 400 mm diameter? And airbag without silver star, just plain black plastic? I need to check the p/n whenever it's off.

    Did some research and came to an conclusion that mine is a W202 steering wheel and matching airbag.

    This wheel should fit your car, you most likely will need to transfer your horn contact ring from your old wheel to this one.

    Thank you for your answer 2phast. I had a look at your web page (great info there BTW) and it looks like the wheel in question is identical to the one you installed in your car some time ago. So it would be Brabus, not AMG wheel. Anyway, seller does not respond to my requests for more photos or p/n, I'm just going to let it go.

    Brabus will have its logo/name embossed in the wheel. My guess is this is a aftermarket conversion on a OEM wheel, not a big deal if its done correctly. You can find many of these on EBay, they ship from overseas and many don't come with the innards, which you would have to remove from your OE wheel.

    these were made in both 390 and 400mm versions..the 390 beeing an "Sportline" steering wheel..
    The typical "Sportline" wheel with narrower positioned bottom spokes where all 390.
