    Hi all!

    Was just wondering if anyone can help!

    Would the air bag still work if I put RS4 B7 flat bottom steering wheel on my RS4 B5 and does anyone have a mint one for sale.

    Many thanks Dave from Dent craft.

    The biggest problem is that the B7 wheel has a dual stage airbag but the B5 has a single stage airbag controller.

    Some people say just wire the second stage, some say wire them in parallel, but having crashed 200+ cars to develoop the airbag system for a major motor manufacturer I say don't do it.

    Think about whether the cosmetics of your car matter more to you than your own good looks...
