    If you're wanting to go from the top wheel to bottom wheel, you'll need both the new wheel and new airbag as your old one won't fit.

    And also maybe a steering module if you don't already have a MFSW or DSG

    Yep, and coding when fitted.

    It's certainly not cheap to retrofit a FBMFSW!
