    Best interior mod ever fbmfsw

    Only fitted this week but feels great slightly chunkier and smaller then my original three spoke wheel. was very hard work fitting but im sure you will agree well worth it!
    Works great with my RNS-E and the SDS system just waiting for my Audi bluetooth phone prep Kit which is the reason i needed a mfsw,cant wait!

    I spoke to the guy on ebay selling these just this week - he said they couldn't do it yet but were looking into it! Would be interested to hear what problems you had to overcome. Looks good :D

    Airbag would use single stage on the FBMFSW dual stage bag as it does on the 8P pre-2005 cars, facelift 8L switched to canbus so probably made life alot easier on this car, I would like to know if the slip ring & steering wheel control module was used from the 8P or just jigged the current wiring on slip ring etc, no canbus simulators used?

    Good job

    Thanks for the comments glad you all lovin it, i definitely am especially with the dieselgeek short shift, it feels like a new car. All the controls on the wheel works as they should do and control the RNS-E perfectly. Have just ordered a Audi bluetooth box of tricks which should make the most of my FBMFSW. So far i have spent near 2500 on my interior gadgets which include RNS-E, Alpine digital tunner, Dvd player with usb input, VIM, SDS, FBMFSW, Audi Bluetooth Kit. The FBMFSW was the hardest mod i have done and i spent alot of hours scratching my head.

    I was able to use the original slip ring with a few modifications and i also wired in a 8P unit with a custom wiring loom, A few modifications were also required to the airbag igniter.

    WOW!

    Is your car the AMK 154kw facelift? If so how did you get the RNS-E to match the Soul Black dash?

    Edit: Sorry just noticed your sig - 03 = BAM 165kw and not Soul Black interior.

    Wheels can be picked up for about 450 and they are fitted in the 8P S3 along with other models, not to sure but looks like a S-line badge on his, so could be from anything across the facelift range of the A3,A4's etc...

    Its from the 8P/TT as only ones with that size & airbag design, rs6 one is same design but is slightly larger, he's probably changed the badge from S3/TTS to this

    The R32 interior comes no where near a nice s3 interior, the quality of the audi is superior

    Only interior mod i would like to do now is fit bucket seats from the s3 8P.

    Looking to sell it soon, it's not suitable for my daily commute any more, it wouldn't make sense to keep it.

    Having had both the S3 and R32, I'd say the S3's build quality is slightly better but only the seats save it from being really dull. The R32's feels a little more sporty, yet is still well built. Both are very dated now though.
