    Steering wheel

    My current steering wheel is a bit rough looking and wondered if I could change it for another audi steering wheel but with controls?

    My current one doesn't and it at 2003 A4 cab.

    Was looking at something like this

    Audi S5 Multifunctional Steering Wheel | eBay

    Or will have I have to stick to updating with something like this

    *AUDI A4 B7 RS4 05-08 3 SPOKE BLACK LEATHER MULTIFUNCTION STEERING WHEEL | eBay

    or

    AUDI S3 STEERING WHEEL 2008 MODEL | eBay

    Or will none of them fit!?

    There's something about dual stage airbags to be careful of when using newer steering wheels.

    And getting steering controls to work can be a pain. Best bet, in my opinion, is to go like for like, or upgrade to the sport spec wheel, with three arms(?) rather than four.

    Everytime I try and change something, I found out I can't without major modification, so move on to the next thing! lol

    In that case probably best to go for one of the 3 spoke sport wheels (if your car doesn't already have one), newer wheels can be a pain.

    I have a 3 spoke one already as I have the sport model, it's just a bit worn and would like a newer one.

    The B6 MFSW's are all four spokes wheels, like this (which also has tiptronic function). You might need a new slip ring for the steering, and a MFSW ECU, but other than that it should be plug and play (ish). As mentioned, newer wheels have issues of uncertainty ref the dual stage airbag's working if required.

    Would that not look cheap and nasty in the flesh though, a bit like those steering wheel covers you can purchase.
