    'F' is the correct one and you need slip ring suffix 'D'

    You might be right but they are £165 from Audi and whilst ever people want to fit mfsw they will have to pay the going rate !

    yh but thats way over the going rate... that guy is just trying to capitalise on the fact that there arent may of those module on ebay at the moment... i bought a steering control module a few weeks back for £75 and that is still overpriced compared to the £40 i paid for my own one just over a year ago

    I is a desperate man................I need one. Got a mint FBMFSW with no car attached to it. Aaaarrgghhh

    Just PM'd the Ebay seller again as apparently the price wasnt negotiable.............we'll see if it drops again if it doesnt sell again.

    This is all too confusing now...went into the garage yesterday as I had a niggling feeling that I had suffix F steering module fitted on my S3 which would mean I could go ahead and fit the FBMFSW. This is whats fitted

    SLIP RING - IK0 959 653 D
    MODULE - 8P0 953 549 F (yes F)

    So I do believe that I dont require a new module..........can someone verify please.

    IF this is correct do I need an additional loom to go from wheel to module?

    Those are the correct modules for mfsw. If you are fitting a fbmfsw you should have the correct loom supplied with the wheel and airbag.

    I may do Ash, think he has got two so may be cheeky and give him £160 for the pair. Not sure he will go for it?

    nah i already tried that lol
    he said he had 2 and although the pic shows he has 2 he actually only has 1 left. he is finding it hard to sell so now is slowly lowering his price. £90 i guess isnt as bad as £120

    See if he relists it again at a lower price like he did before. My 1st dealings with him he said No Way to anything less than asking price....so its now £90.........hmmm I would wait and call his bluff.

    The FBMFSW saga continues. Fitted the wheel today after getting the loom. Not really that hard to fit it. So when it came to code it this is where all the problems started. A lengthy phone call to Ash proceeded after getting ESP light on and afew other things, and then we discovered that my car is actually fitted with Steering Module IK0 953 549 AH which is in fact NOT compatible with a FBMFSW. Now having been into the Audi garage and getting a print out of what is fitted to my car according to Audi, it transpires that they have f****d up by incorrectly identifying the wrong module.....what a phone call that was. I await their investigation.
    So Im really back to square one albeit with a FBMFSW fitted and no active controls. The hunt for a suffix F module begins again.
    Must thank Ash for doing a brilliant job in sitting with me with on mobile with bluetooth on and VCDS running for more an hour trying to decipher what was wrong with the car. Thanks buddy....I owe you one. You are a top bloke

    WOW......just heard back from the garage with the worst ever excuse Ive heard. The MFSW was never an option on my chassis number as an S3. A little baffled now as Ive seen alot of 8P2 S3's with them fitted as standard but apparently was never an option for my car according to their database. The head parts dude says he will get no-where with it if email sent to higher authority. We'll see. I can see a major rant brewing up over the weekend. 0800 Monday and I will be there knocking on the doors.

    Looking forward already to the discussion on Monday. One other thing has anyone got the part number for the airbag screws plastic blanking plates. My wheel seems to have none and the 2 from the S3 wheel dont fit.

    The old S3 wheel will be going on the classifieds section so watch this space.

    Give the part number of the wheel to Audi parts and they will match up the caps. About £6 each iirc.

    They might not be able to order them, seeing as the wheel isn't an option on that type of car......APPARENTLY. pmsl
