    Bought this S3 2001 with a really worn steering wheel. I want to replace it.

    Can you help me with a part number or maybe a part number for a wheel from another car (must look like mine and be as thick too) that I can use.

    Here's the current steering wheel: bad picture but you'll see it:

    I've found this on eBay but seller claims I will need a new horn bracket (which he also sells) and that I will need to modify the Airbag connector because of that new horn bracket?? Could he be right?

    Any ideas?

    What happened there Scott? Decided you were secretly in love with your 4 spoke and swapped them back? :)

    No the robbing b*stard that sold me it knew the airbag was faulty and failed to mention that!! But as the wheel is in mint condition dennis can use his airbag and swop wheels!!

    So unfortunately the 4 spoke is going back on for now. :(

    Thanks for the offer mate. It depends on what you ask for it really since I was looking for a brand new original wheel. Yours is used, right?

    My wheel is used. Just found out the airbag is not faulty and was to do with me having the wrong clock spring to take the 3 spoke wheel. So wheel and airbag in mint condition is £140!!
