    Im going to buy this steering wheel for my car, its a flat bottom without multi function as i dont like the idea of buttons on the steering, the question is do i need a steering slip ring for it to fit ? If so which one and part numbers please ? Also whats the part number for the airbag plug that i need
    i know this has been covered but i cant find a thread for the non multifuction flat bottom steering sorry if it has been covered

    thankyou

    Subscribed as this is something I'm interested in doing also.
    Also will the old airbag fit the new one? I presume not buy just checking.

    It will not fit thats why the new airbag plug is needed i just need to know part number for air bag plug and whether the slipring needs to be upgraded to a different one for the flat bottom

    Brilliant cheers.

    Also FYI there was a S-line flat bottom on eBay the other week with airbag for £250 I think?
