    B8 Steering wheel in a B7

    Wanted to upgrade my 3-spoke MFSW for one with the silver multi-function buttons and an S-Line badge (didn't want an S4 steering wheel), sadly the B7 range never came with them so I thought I'd buy a refurb off an ebay seller and swap out the buttons as I bought the silver buttons separately.

    After archiemac posted to say he had fitted a B8 S4 wheel, I thought I'd take the plunge and bought a bargain B8 S-Line wheel off ebay.

    Fitted it last night, in the freezing snow and it works beautifully and really sets off the interior.

    So, those people with a 2005-2007 B7 will probably have a steering wheel part number of 8P0 419 091. You can replace this with an 8K0 419 091. It's possible that the 2007-2008 wheels, I think are 8E0 419 091 will probably work as well.

    Guess I'll have to flog my silver buttons on ebay (they were pricey!).

    Here's a pic:

    that looks really good wrath! the silver really goes well with your interior!

    apart from the steering wheel itself, did you need anything else?! i currently have a 05 A4 with a 3 spoke steering wheel and have been looking into changing it to a MFSW. what else would i need to do this conversion?!

    Changing from a MFSW to a B8 MFSW needs no extra's but to go from a non-MFSW to a MFSW requires a few components. There are various threads on here about what you need and you'll need the correct part numbers. Keep an eye out on ebay.de for them.

    You'll need a new steering wheel control module, slip ring, airbag harness and steering wheel.

    LIKE IT WRATH!

    What kind of job was it to fit? I have a four spoke SE MFST steering wheel currently fitted to my A4 and I'm looking to change it for a nice S-Line three spoke wheel.. However it is proving expensive due to the fact the steering wheels being sold with Airbags are about Ł450@!

    Are you going to sell your old wheel - however I guess you have re-used your airbag?

    Cheers mate. Yep, I've kept the airbag as they are pricey and there was no need to swap it over.

    Have in mind that you might be able to sell your current airbag so you might get money back on it.

    Swapping it over was easy, I'm a dab-hand at taking wheel's off now

    Tell me, was your old SW a 'multifunction' type or did you upgrade that function as well?

    I originally had a non-MFSW. Got all the bits and installed a MFSW and cruise. Then swapped the MFSW for this one.

    Nice mod Wrath. I've previously retrofitted a MFSWand cruise to my car but the SW didnt have the badge etc. Is it basically a straight swap then? I hope so !

    Wow blast from the past! The wheel is a straight swap. The B7 version doesn't have silver trim and doesn't have an S-Line badge.

    What's the difference with the A3 one?
    I've seen a recent advert saying this wheel will fit A3/4 etc????

    The A3 one is shallower and the airbag screws are in a slightly different place.

    Hi guys

    To clarify one point: the original poster has a manual car...

    Is it also a straight swap for those with Tiptronic paddle shift (S4 etc)?

    I was sure I read somewhere about there being an issue with single/dual stage airbags? or is that putting a B8 wheel onto a B6?
