My E63 steering wheel is different

Hi: I am new to MB and just got a used 2009 E63 AMG. I noticed that my steering wheel is different from other 2009 E63. Have not seen one like mine, the bottom part is rather straight, not round. Picture attached. Is this normal?
Thanks.

Consider yourself lucky! If I'm not mistaken, it's an aftermarket CLK63BS style wheel. I personally think it looks A LOT better than the stock ones...

So if this was an option on the E class, can I get it installed on my 2008 E63?

Where can I find one? Do I have to take the car to the dealer to get it installed?

You are right, since you mentioned it, I do remember seeing the performance package on the ad. I didn't know what it was. What else is in the performance package?

Thanks for the info. My car is black and black. Used to own an BMW M3 black convertible. Traded it in for the E63. More power, more luxury, more comfortable. Love it.

That is a very nice steering wheel, very lucky my friend. It looks sporty yet classy. I've seen some pretty bad steering wheels installed on E63s and E55s with that tacky hideous fake CF wrapping but this wheel is just perfect. Mercedes do make some nice steering wheels Change the wood trim though, that trim isn't the best looking. Get the grey looking trim it's alot nicer.

The carbon fiber trim is definitely aftermarket.
