    Were they not an option on the pre-facelift models... They only included them as standard on the later revision with the drl etc.

    My '07 S3 poverty spec steering wheel looks exactly like the pistonheads image link you sent before Gynads, but just has the S3 logo on the bottom spoke of the wheel.

    Car was at a great price with others in the showroom waiting to buy it if I didn't. That helped me overlook the "basic" wheel!

    the FBMFSW became standard equipment on the 8P3, before that is was an optional extra.

    right lads, the guy from ebay has messaged me back this message......

    Hi,
    we can supply this wheel for you but we need to know what type of airbag you have, there are two typed of airbag different from behind, not compatible with each other.
    To find out you need to lift off your airbag and take a look at the back side.



    is there a way i can phone audi with my reg, and find out what type of airbag is fitted? id get the chassis number , but as mentioned previously, im currnetly offshore

    cheers

    I doubt that Audi will know what you're on about

    I'm sure someone on here will be able to help you out if you ask nicely

    NHN has always been my guru

    There are 2 tyres of round air bag he is right, I'm not sure which is the S3 one but I'm pretty sure the S3 and TT have identical ones. The other type is for the RS6/Lambo wheel

    Lee, yeah, as much as i'd love one, it seems like a big jump in price to have a flat bottom, I can have RNS E and this wheel for the same price as a FBMFSW
