    One happy ebaying chappy

    I've been watching a B8 MFSW on the bay for the last four days. Well I stuck in a cheeky bid and snaffled it for £72

    Bl66dy bargain or what?

    Can't wait to fit it.

    Awesome!
    So the B8 wheels will work on the B7 no problem.
    I've been wanting to upgrade mine MFSW to one with paddles.

    B8 wheels do fit on B7 platforms so the part number should start 8K0.

    Rollocks!!!!!

    Wheel arrived this morning, so I was outside at the speed of light with tools in hand. It isn't gonna fit . The difference is obviously the depth of the airbag. Same shape, same diameter splines etc, just my airbag is far too deep for the new wheel

    New wheel; 8P0 491 091 DT WUL


    Existing wheel; 8P0 419 091 BL TNA


    Them pegs sticking up in the new wheel obviously stop the airbag from dropping in all the way. GUTTED, but then again, I knew I was taking a chance.

    Oh well, back to the drawing board, and you'll find this wheel in the classifides

    Its an A3 steering wheel (the new one) so it would have to be an A3 airbag, but thats more expense and there's no guarantees I wouldn't have to start changing pins around for the airbag to work. Better off just getting rid and sourcing a proper A4 B8 wheel.

    I was of the opinion the B7 airbag fitted the B8 wheel?

    So is it a B8 wheel or an A3 wheel?

    My B8 steering wheel fitted perfectly, once i'd opened up the middle with a dremel to allow the B7's bag to fit.

    The wheel I got off ebay was an A3 wheel, so was totally different. I sold that and bought an A4 B8 wheel and that was a straight swap, airbag and all. No dremmeling involved.
