    Hi I was wondering if someone could help.
    I'd like to upgrade my steering wheel from nasty plastic one to a sexy punched leather RS6 steering wheel. It is not flat bottom and I don't want one, as my airbag seems to be single stage.

    I would like to know if my airbag will fit this wheel.
    My airbag is in the same shape from the outside.

    My steering wheel looks exactly the same as the RS6 one, no tiptronic.

    Has anyone got an idea?

    Any help appreciated ! :o.k:

    I got a single stage airbag wheel and FBMFSW has got a dual stage airbag.

    I'd rather my face meet the working airbag than beautifully looking flat bottomed wheel's airbag cover. :think:

    In fact, i might keep all the upgrade parts that i haven't put on my car yet in my boot, so i can show people that i had plans to get away from poverty spec if i ever crashed

    "look!! I told you i had new wheels to put on!" :happy:
