    Where to get FBMFSW from?

    Hi guys,

    Anyone got know where to get FBMFSW from apart from the Ł600 eBay jobs? Also, I take it that it’s quite an involved process to fitting them (my 2006 DSG has cruise, so I should not need anymore parts apart from the wheel and airbag?), has anyone produced a guide how to do it, I take it you need VagCom to code it all up?

    Thanks guys, and sorry for all the questions.

    Matt

    Narr, its ok mate, haven’t been racing since 2007 so it does not really need to be up-to-date! Hopefully some sponsorship will be coming my way soon to start doing it again

    Not sure TBH, about Ł140 for a three year hosting deal, and then just using frontpage/dreamweaver to update. I'll keep you in mind mate!

    Well hosting can do cheaper but I assume you pay ontop the yearly domain charges as there's 2 things to it, 1 is hosting other is domain rental purely for the name

    I'd love one of these but my car is early so it will need the slip ring and other bits, it would cost me one months mortgage to do! ...........and wife would inflict violence upon me for doing that when she wants a new bathroom!

    I dont think its a S-line one as it is not perforated. I would have it off him if it was!! Would be nice to see a pic of it though...

    Nice! I'll look into that.

    Is this plug and play with the airbag and mounting or is it a crapy job to start on myself?

    What did you search for on the bay?

    And is it in UK the same that you loose your warrenty if you do the job yourself?

    It's not perforated no, the TT S-Line ones weren't, that's what that is with the addition of TT-S paddles which cost Ł250 to buy brand new.
