    Anyone fitted one of the flat bottom new RS4 steering wheels to there B5 A4/S4/RS4? Bolt straight on? Any probs/issues?

    Here's a pic of the wheel to help anyone out.

    Didn't Olly_K do this on his B5 RS4?

    IIRC, Doc's right, you can't get the airbags working, although I think someone managed to get the multi-function steering wheel buttons to work.

    So it should bolt straight on, think i could sacrifice airbag for a wheel that good looking! Just the price that's a slight issue now! I'm sure i've seen pics of it done somewhere, but can I find em?!!!! My favourites is full of **** like that, but never the **** you want!

    mate of mine has one in his RS4 B5 so it fits physically but the wiring to the airbag is different, at some point we'll have a go at sorting it, i think it can be done but it's a case of checking the drawings to see what triggers what, it's not the sort of thing you undertake lightly, lol

    What about the new TT steering wheel think it's a similar design.

    Audi must be using dual-stage airbags by now..I'm not sure what the work-around is for those.

    £18k and it's yours! Not too bad I don't think for fully loaded motor like that. KW coilovers, full Milltek, AMD remap, 405bhp, 8 pot brakes. And in the best colour of course! I want, I want so much. Anyone wanna buy my S4 for £18k...........:icon_thumright:
