This is the standard fixed 44mm spacer. This will be mounted between the steering wheel and the steering hub. It is equipped with a curly cable to connect it to the in-car electronics. This option is often chosen because of regulations or to reduce costs.
When the wheel is equipped with a quick release, a plate stays on the steering hub, but your wheel can be easily taken off. It is also equipped by a curly cable with the in-car electronics. This option is often chosen because of easy accessibility reasons. With the curly cable, the wheel can be detached but not taken out of the car completely.
Quick release with connector
The quick release with integrated connector is used without a curly cable. The connector can be connected to the electronics of the car. The connection is made inside the quick release/wheel hub.
*The curly cable turns with the wheel hub. It doesn’t get tangled around the wheel, and it doesn’t even hit the indicators/cruise control/wipers.
There are two different models available. The most used model has four free to use switches (01.06.02140). A ‘free to use’ button can be used for anything you want. These buttons are switched to ground, and can be used with the supplied flying leads. The flying leads are connected into the back of the slip ring (dashboard side). Connect an external timer, flash light or anything you would like to control directly from your racing wheel. The wiring for each custom function needs to be done by the customer. The other models has only two paddle, and no free to use switches (01.06.02141). The plug and play solution makes sure no airbag light will turn on after installation.
If the functions on the ‘Free to use’ switches are already known, please add this as a note to the order. If the function names are not supplied at order, there will not by any engraving at the switch positions. It is possible to laser engrave the wheel any time later at KMP (€45 per wheel).
Custom made layouts are possible on request as well. Please contact KMP if you would like to discuss all possible solutions.
The wheel is compatible with the BMW E46 (Steering wheel BMW OEM Number: 32342282222).
