    It's amazing how the price of them has gone up. I paid £340 delivered from Germany for mine in December 07. Now they are reaching £400-£550! There are a few about, as with most things on ebay its time and patience!

    the price seems to go up & down without reason. Make sure you get proper translation as the german ones dont always include the airbag even though there is one in the picture.

    i have already contacted him as i dont live far from him at all, i wanted to collect as it would save me the cost of postage and i would be sure to get it.
    guess what he said, NO COLLECTIONS! that to me suggests he has an alterior motive.

    Yes there is something dodgy about him. He hasnt sold anything on Ebay for a year, now he has a big collection of in demand Audi parts. He told me the same, no collections. I dont think he actually has the stuff for sale.:rolleyes:

    how does the oval shaped airbag work together with the other airbags in the car. The standard steering wheels has a rectangle shape. Does the fact it is a different shape affect the level of protection you get should you get into a serial accident? Is there a reason why some are round and some rectangle? You'd think they made it rectangle for a reason right?

    Also when installing the FBMFSW is it noticeable that there was previously a standard steering wheel? Do you need to replace the back plastic bit as well so that it's not evident?

    thanks.,,

    There are sensors on the car that when they detect an impact it fires them particular airbags in that area to protect you mate.

    No the airbags are tested very stringently by specific companies to make sure they're EU approved or whatever the certification is, the material & shape is designed around the internal airbag so as to not damage or obstruct the firing of them in an impact situation.

    They are different shapes purely for aesthetic reasons I believe & as long as they pass the tests they can use that shape.

    No you dont even notice it was different wheel before, not at all & only time you'd replace the trim would be if you also fitted cruise at same time as requires cut out, but otherwise just wheel & airbag changed & possibly some electronic modules
