    Hi.

    My S-line 3-spoke steering wheel is without the multiple-function.
    I cruse Controll so I hope I do not need to change the slip ring

    My question is. Can I use a steering wheel from
    a A4? Any changes in diameter?

    There is some cheap ones on eBay.

    Thanks again for helping:sorry:

    The A4 wheel is exactly the same as your a3 one so its a straight swap. BUT the airbags are different on some a4 steering wheels so check first...

    Would a non multi function car need to be Vagcom'ed before the multi function wheel would work?

    Ok so the steering wheel is the same.
    To be safe I use my original airbag, is that ok?

    The one I found is without airbag.

    Some one hear got a MFSW for sale?
