    sbhoy, are you sure you needed a new slip ring - I thought 8P2's like the S3 didn't need this upgraded to add MFSW?

    i know mate but when buying the wheel i did not know what parts i needed when i phoned audi they would not tell me what parts i had on my car once i told them i was putting a wheel on and it was not off them so the guy i bought the wheel from had the slipring for £50 so i bought just to be safe i will punt it if not needed

    i have just completed my MFSW fit and its not a hard job, i would first make sure you have the right parts on your car already.
    go into Audi and give them your chassis number and they should be able to tell you what you already have on your car. Just don't do what sbhoy17 did and tell them you have bought parts elsewhere... just tell them you are trying to find out what is needed and what you have.
    As long as you have slipring part no: 1K0 959 653 D and a control module part no: 8PO 953 549 F you will be ok

    as for the 1KO 953 549 ah i dont think it supports MFSW as it shows in the below link.
    http://www.rv-solutions.co.uk/public/Audi_Accessory_Update_Retro.pdf

    Also before you go ahead and try to do the job make sure you have to hand a torx 25 screw bit and a M16 Spline bit, as these are the two types holding your airbag and steering wheel in place. there are guides on the forum to how to fit if you need more help... or just ask here :)

    As far as i know the one you need is 8P0 953 549 F have a look at that above link in my last post and you will see on the pdf that audi recommend the same one. mind you if you look at the column marked 'Multifunction' you can see which controllers support the MFSW so you dont always need the 8P0 953 549 F, thats more for cruise control fitting.

    I got mine from ebay.de

    I used Google to translate 'steering ecu' and did a search. There was only 1 but I won it for £62 incl. postage.

    By the way 8P0 953 549 F is not the same as 1K0 953 549 F which will not work.

    Incidentally the 8P0 version is now the only one fitted to the A3 and is the only one available from Audi at about £160 !

    This one I've found on ebay.de should be ok, as it's a 'Highline' module with type 2 slip ring ( suffix D ) :-

    VW Lenksäulensteuergerät 1K0 953 549G / 1K0953549G on eBay (end time 13-Feb-11 20:39:45 GMT)

    advert states :- Das Steuergerät habe ich geprüft. Es unterstützt MFA +, Lenkradtasten und Tempomat which, translated by Google means - The control unit I tested. It supports MFA +, steering wheel and cruise control buttons
