    As the topic states, has anybody tried this? Will it be a simple but expensive mod? Yeah I know, Its friday :)

    I prefer the S3 FBSW to the RS4 one personally.

    i liked the brushed alum bottom part but not so keen on the suede. As for fitting, sorry, no idea if its physically possible.

    The only thing about the RS4 wheel is that if you already have the MFSW you'll be missing some functions on the RS4 one. From what I remember the RS4 wheel only has 4 buttons for volume up\down and track up\down. No mode button, no SDS button and no scroll wheels.

    In theory it should fit as long as it is a 12mm internal wrench bolt jobbie holding it in. The only difficulty you might have is with the airbag loom and MF controls.

    Thanks for that Marc....quick question. My S3 FBSW has a MODE button but is not functional. What functions does the MODE button control?

    The only thing I use mode for is when I press it, I can access my phone book on the DIS and scroll down to the name I want to dial. Think mode is only used in the phone prep kit, but I will stand corrected.

    The MODE button only works if you have BT. It is used to switch from Radio\CD to phone on the display so you can view your phone book.

    It's worse than that ... yes the RS4 FBSW has only 4 buttons, but the SCSM detects that it's an RS4 wheel and will not accept the coding to make them work as volume and track up/down buttons (on an RS4 the buttons are the three trip computer buttons and the Sport button). So you get a FBSW with no working buttons - not much use really.
