    It can be done but its a little dodgy if you ask me. The B7 multi-function steering wheel uses a twin igniter to set it off whereas the B6 only has one. I think people who have fitted the B7 unit have joined the wiring together for the 2 igniters to get round this issue but the only way to test if this does actually work is to set it off, and i've not yet come across anyone who's actually done this!! Technically speaking if you had an accident and ended up headbutting the steering wheel causing yourself injury because your airbag didnt deploy then i'd doubt your insurance would see this as a good thing!! Personally speaking i'd rather not take the risk. You'd probably even be safer crashing a Nissan Navara!!!

    What dash functions were you after by the way? If you want cruise control & DIS you can still have these without the need for the multi-function steering wheel.

    A bit off topic, but not much... I want to also add a multifunction to my 04 cab, but the local stealer has told me not to bother as it might cause all sorts of issues. Has anyone done this, and if so the obvious question is.. any issues?
