    What is called the srs, but if it helps it’s the one with the bit of chrome on bottom spoke.

    SRS is the airbag
    It stands for Supplemental Restraint System

    Thank you for that so that said I thought all steering wheels had air bags. I only said it was an srs because when I sent mine to Royal they came back to me and said that’s what it was. So basically they are all srs steering wheels is what you are saying.

    yes all of them are SRS airbag wheels, but not all of them have it written on, so probably that's how he differentiates between them.

    Thank you for clearing that up, I now understand there is no difference other than the bit of chrome with SRS on it. I just could not understand why Jack at Royal steering wheels came back to me when I sent it to him saying that it was not the wheel he had expected. But went on to say it was an SRS wheel but that was not a problem they could still do it and make a nice job, Which they did. Which made me think there must be some difference between some Z3 wheels.
