    You need steering module ref 8P0 953 549 F

    Nothing else will work !

    You also need a new airbag wiring harness ( 8P0 971 589 AD ) unless you got one with the wheel and airbag

    I have just purchsed the MFSW and all other necessary parts. the control module usually goes on ebay for around £85 part number 8P0 953 549 F and the airbag and buttons wiring loom 8P0 971 589 Q this from audi is about £35 but i got it from scrapyard for £10.

    im just waiting to book in now to get all the coding done

    Walto - you were lucky with that module - they are usually over £100 ! The wiring loom can be version 'Q' or 'AB' or 'AD', they are the later versions of 'Q' .

    Welcome to the forum Paul.

    Dont waste your time on connects 2, as you have a double din & antenna system is compatible, then can use sd card slots for mp3, with all track data, for me better option as gives you nav aswell as much better screen along with audi bt compatiblity & control via steering wheel when setup correctly.

    The actual module is £180 new, slip ring is approx £70, I have these available if interested, I also have some rns units available, are you after a supply/fit solution Paul, if so PM me
