    It will work but it will need coding and will also need a Highline Steering ECU, which you probably wont have.

    Is that true? - since gas-man says he already has an MFSW (a 4-spoke one) won't his SCSM already work with the A3 MFSW?

    2005 is it a B6 or B7 you have, B6 use single stage airbag wheels with buttons. The A3 will be a dual stage airbag. That may be your first issue.

    If you have a B7, then I don't see any problems except making up the correct airbag loom.

    Straight swap no coding needed as you already have a MFSW.
    Only issue may be the airbag loom connector to the slip ring as it may be slightly different to that of the A3. You can always test first and if does not fit, then swap the loom from your 4 spoke airbag.
