    Flat bottomed steering wheel (non sport)?

    Hi Guys,
    Hopefully somebody can help me.

    Is it possible to spec a flat bottomed sports steering wheel on to a new A3 Sport (as opposed to an S Line)?

    i have seen one on a Sport but I think it might be a demo car.

    Thanks in advance.

    You have to be careful its compatible, there are multitude of types & the 8V is different, also modules on the car have to be compatible.

    I haven't seen steering wheels as options? SE, Sport and S-line each have their own wheel as far as I know. Flat bottom only on S-line.

    I seem to recall that picture is of one of the very early show cars that were toured round dealers when the 8V was first launched. As I understand it some of the very first UK imports such as this were not to full UK spec, and were in effect a mixture of Sport and S-line. As far as I know the flat bottomed wheel is only currently available on the S-line in the UK.

    Hi,

    You can get the flat bottom as a option (I did), and as the others have said you can get em online.
