    Not sure pics would help, once you see on another car its a done deal :P just look at the wheel on the 8P or TT chassis, that will convince you immediately lol

    Let me know if of interest as I can supply/fit these

    I think having seen them on the newer models they look great was just concerned if they would look out of place in the 2006 cabriolet.
    I've seen them them with multi function and paddles for anything from £200 to £450 on eBay.
    What sort of cost is involved in having this done mate, send me a message if you'd rather

    Flat bottom uses round airbags, B7 standard are shield shaped, not compatible.

    I take it you can get these wheels without paddles yeah? I've looked at a few in the past but they all seem to have paddles....

    Assume that if you already have a MFSW then its a straight swap over?

    Is it easy to fit mate? I guess the loom isn't a simple plug and play!
    That seems like a good price for everything, I take it it was new?

    It's pretty straight forward. at the moment iv got the new loom on there, ill have a look at both looms over the weekend, and let you know whats needs changing if you like mate? just had to trim down the plug to get it to fit, it was only fitted to the car for about 3months, so it was secondhand.

    You'd have to make a deal with SL4VE then if Jeff doesn't, then consider buying from me I guess

    Made my first call using SDS at the weekend. It's times like this that I wish my dad was still alive. He loved his gadgets, but to him, the height of car sophistication was central locking and electric windows.

    Ditto mate, was thinking just the same when I was discussing something with an RS3 owner recently, my dad was far more clever than me at mechanical & electronic systems, he would be in his element these days which is a shame as he would of taught me so much more aswell.
