    There are several versions of the MFSW and airbag so a direct swap cannot be guaranteed. If you order a wheel from a dealer then obviously they can order the correct wheel with the Multi-function. If you are buying from eBay / secondhand then you need to be careful.

    You may also need a new steering wheel control module ( you may already have the correct one if you have RNS-e and/or Cruise factory fitted) and you will also need the lead for the buttons on the new wheel.(unless you have DSG then you will already have the cable).

    I actually just noticed you signature. As you have Cruise then you should already have the module. You will obviously also need access to VAG-COM to do the necessary coding.

    There really are load and loads of part numbers listed for the wheel so I would get the correct part number for a dealer and then keep an eye out on eBay as the come up quite often (especially on German eBay, which is where I got mine).

    Hope that helps.
    I'm an optimist but I don't think it helps much.

    There's two flat bottomed wheels on now. Item numbers 300178563111 & 200180384281 both with airbags.

    I'd double check with the dealer parts dept just to be sure.

    The flat tyre indicator was factory fitted, I think it was 45 so I thought why not!! It can indeed be retrofitted

    Electric seats? I wish, it's just the lumbar support at the base of the seat which goes up/down/in and out.

    Work for Audi, no not me. Never had the headlight bulbs out so I can't help you there. I think you might have me confused with JamS3 (Jamie) who is from Teeside.
