    Ditto. Don't some people switch to OEM suede steering wheels from the RS4 and the like..?

    my wife drives the car 99% of the time so im not worried about not having an air bag, shes going through the change at the mo and is a real *****, so i think the chance of a smack in the face doesnt bother me.

    Thats the funniest thing ive read this month by far.

    Only thing that would bother me is voiding your insurance, other than that all looks good.

    Not to my taste, but each to their own, have you considered an OEM alcantara one like the B5 RS4. You can use your current airbag and just swap the wheel over. I know they are not to everyones taste, personally I really like them, there is a few on ebay at the moment and there is a link below, the badge says S-line, bit could easily be changed to an S3 one.

    its actually illegal in australia to instal a non-airbag wheel if the car came with an airbag.

    also try TM Tuning, they have a range on offer

    that just looks like the TT QS steering wheel. Proper nice though! I rather fancy one, but bugger paying 200 for it!

    Got a suede wheel in the track car:



    But I don't think it'd suit a road going car. Would look a bit silly with the rest of the interior

    Looks very very nice, but as many have said wouldn't fancy loosing the airbag, and I have a feeling, (though i could be wrong) but isnt it illegal to remove an airbag system thats fitted as standard? Im sure an MOT Tester could confirm.

    That looks gorgeous! I'm sold..

    Has anyone got a pic of this fitted as it would be nice to see how it looks with the air bag in place.
