    The kits are a piece of cake to fit if you follow the write-up on here.
    £100 for a genuine kit on eBay.
    You would still need to get it coded though obviously.

    Nothing - if you check the VCDS user list you will find someone local to you who will help. Job takes 5 minutes to code.

    Maybe a few beer tokens as a thank you !!

    If you fit yourself you will find that after the install without having coding done there and then you will not have power steering and a ESP fault. this is due to the steering angle sensor being removed during the install. for total piece of mind have someone do it for you if you do not have access to VCDS on the day of the install

    I fitted mine myself then ran about for 3 months before I got it coded.
    I got the ESP fault for about 10s after starting the car for the 1st time then it went away.
    Never lost the power steering.

    After undoing the airbag bolts, straighten the steering wheel, before undoing the central bolt, then pull the wheel straight off.
    Use strips of electrical tape to 'lock' the steering sensor/slip-ring in place.

    Both lights came on after I did mine but after driving 100 yards they go off. I never lost power steering. As Mr Lapou says, if you remove the wheel when in the straight ahead position and then make sure you do not allow the slip ring to move, you will have no problem with the steering.

    Obviously the CC will not work until coded but everything else will !
