    So purchased a multi function wheel from a later car which I have subsequently found out uses a two stage airbag which is
    obviously different to our single stage jobs!
    Done a bit of research & thought it was simply a case of different slip ring & module but am being told this is not the case,
    can anyone shed a bit more light on this for me please????????????/

    There's a lot of threads on this I think? Numerous people have fitted later models steering wheels.

    I understand fitting a B7 2 stage airbag to B6 single stage one to be a grey area, you never know if the airbag is going to work until you crash..

    Cheers QJ,if it was just me driving the car wouldn't be too fussed about an airbag tbh but the girlfriend uses it as well so
    not an option.
    Do you know of anyone in Dorset area it might be worth speaking to further as I'm in Weymouth area?

    I don't know anyone locally I'm afraid, I'm not sure if any qualified auto electrician could do it or if they need to be a VAG specialist. I understand its always better to work from a recommendation though. There's a company called VWCruise (or hazzydays) who offer a wide range of these types of services. See what their website suggests. I'd link it for you but I'm on my phone, it will come up on Google though.
