    Hi,

    I want to change my current 4 spoke steering wheel with the 3 spoke steering wheel.

    Is the Audi A3 8P steering wheel compatible with the Audi A4 B6?

    Thanks for your answer mate. Which other model Audi steering wheels will be compatible with my Audi B6? Would steering wheel from A3/A6 also work?

    I just want a 3 spoke steering wheel, not too fussed which model it comes from...

    Also are there any specific airbag that I have to look out for my model?

    Get the B6 sport steering wheel. That is a leather 3 spoke and compatible.

    These are extremely hard to find. I am avoiding main dealers as they quoted me £350+ for steering wheel only and £750+ for the airbag :noway:

    I'm not entirely sure on which wires will need modding? Any guidance?

    Will other model Audi's such as A3 and A6 steering wheel fit mine without any problems?

    I have seen 2 or 3 sport steering wheels in the last week on eBay..........its the airbag that is the most expensive part

    Thank you so much mate for going out of your way and finding me these links, you're a star!

    Thanks my friend for making me understand the differences between Lowline, Midline and Highline, I always wondered what they were :icon_thumright:

    That says "steering column" not steering wheel....


    What is the going rate for these 2nd hand, including airbag? (i.e. not the Audi £1100+VAT as quoted above!)

    The airbag on its own would be £130 - £150 on ebay plus the wheel at an average of £60 depending on its condition.........budget £200 +/- 20% I would say for both
