    Looks very nice mate, you have a sweet car there in general :wub: Not to sure on your skirts :ninja: but they work for you so hey!

    X2 I'm bricking it to try and change the shifter as well. My fbsw has a white trim so wanna change handbrake and gaiter to white trim also but the 2k bill if it goes wrong is a major concern, lol.

    What exactly did you need to do to your old wiring harness then?

    Is going from a MFSW to a FBMFSW a fairly easy straight swap then? Do you reuse the same airbag?

    No you use a different airbag mate, have a look at the pics. The first airbag is a shield shape whereas the fbmfsw has a round airbag
