    The whole "have/don't have to disconnect the battery". I would, to be on the safe side...But that wheel looks exactly like my pre-facelift sports wheel just without the badge!

    [​IMG]" THE ODD MARK HERE AND THERE " ?? The leather looks pretty wrecked on the right side. No reserve and no bids though, hope you get yourself a bargain! I can't see why Audi would have a different steering column fitment between the A3 and S3.

    Yeah thats the pre-facelift version, I've worked many times on my audi's & not once disconnected the battery for airbag work, but upto you, the airbag conversion for facelift is purely a wire reversal, I did this on my 99 S3 when had with a facelift alcantara wheel from the RS4, same as the S3 facelift wheel just suede instead & airbag same, note facelift airbag is different shape to pre-facelift so wont fit, www.airbagsforsale.com are good for airbags if needed.
