    Smile Audi rs4 b5 steering wheel will rs4 b7 flat bottom fit and will air bag still working

    Hi all!

    Was just wondering if anyone can help!

    Would the air bag still work if I put RS4 B7 flat bottom steering wheel on my RS4 B5 and does anyone have a mint one for sale.

    Many thanks Dave from Dent craft.

    The biggest problem is that the B7 wheel has a dual stage airbag but the B5 has a single stage airbag controller.

    Some people say just wire the second stage, some say wire them in parallel, but having crashed 200+ cars to develoop the airbag system for a major motor manufacturer I say don't do it.

    Think about whether the cosmetics of your car matter more to you than your own good looks...
