    Depends what steering wheel you have at the moment. Theres loads of guides out there but an example is I've just fitted my MFSW to my A3 about an hour ago. The airbag fits straight in with the dual harness becuase I have DSG but you may need an extra harness for your airbag.
    The buttons won't work, they need coding in with VCDS

    What year is your car and are you bidding on the wheel AND airbag or just the wheel ?

    The airbag on the fbmfsw is different from the normal airbag

    Re: Flat bottom mfsw

    Just ask seller maybe the harness comes with steering wheel.
    To MF You needs also steering modul 8P0 953 549 F and sleep ring (im not sure if that's the proper name) but the part number is 1K0 959 653 D
    Without those 2 parts buttons don't working

    Your car will already have the correct slip ring but it won't have the steering control module. You need to get that in order to get the mf buttons working.

    your right, if you dont connect the buttons up then you wont need the new module.
    the airbag loom may still be different as there may be different plugs and spade connectors that go on the back of the actual airbag

    Airbag wiring harness part number : 8J0 971 589 A or whichever is the later revision. If you ask for that they will (should) give you the right one.

    About £45 I think.

    Go with my number as the one Leeds2592 gave you is definitely for multi function wheel.

    Wheel alone from Audi is just under £450. Can't be absolutely accurate because prices have changed since my ETKA.
