    Nice one! Subtle little change, but makes a big difference to the overall look of the interior. Gives it a decent dose of bling, lol! xx

    I have a new style three spoke steering wheel from an 8p2 sport for cheap! You will need to get an airbag for it though, but at least that means you can buy that later and spread the cost.

    Vents look nice btw!
    Wanted - a pillar covers, leather interior, rear bumper, standard head lining

    You don't wanna be changing your wheel to a new shape one if you wanna be able to rely on your airbag going off when you need it, the 8P1s are a single stage bag, where as the 8P2s are duel stage, so totally different systems!

    Vents look nice, i picked up my MK2 TT vents for £100 so S3 ones for free is a no brainer!

    as for steering wheels i found this yesterday, would fit your car (single stage) and looks fairly nice, though you would need the 3 spoke airbag

    So where is the iPod? And where is it connecting back to? It's pretty easy to feed it through but you will probably need to take off the glove box so you can see what your doing, that isn't hard at all anyway

    the ipod sits in the ash tray area. and the cable comes from the headunit. i fed it into there purely so i could hide it in the glovebox, but more often than not it just sits in my ash tray area....just been looking at your blog page... pretty impressed by the stuff youve done wish i had the know how to do half as much as you lol.

    another thing mate, how much would i be looking at to get airbag and cover for that steering wheel you have?

    the airbag for the steering wheel i have will cost you a fair bit, but as you have already been advised the dual stage airbags may not work for your car.
