    Haven't posted many pictures of the car yet. Haven't taken many, been too excited :lmfao: But Matt came over saturday and fitted my new wheel :yahoo: . Nothing wrong with the MFSW, looks lovely, but the FBMFSW just kills it for me :thumbsup: It was £340 delivered from ebay.de (settled outside of the auction) and I had to buy a connector which was £30 to make the multifunction work. Aside from that it is amazing, looks great, feels great and just so glad I bought it!

    From this:

    To this:

    Any of you thinking of doing this mod, I'm pretty sure you won't regret it! Well worth the money imo. :salute:

    Thanks Nath.

    People will start to talk mate if you start wearing pink tights ;)

    Looks good though - are you selling your existing wheel?

    lol - the tights were standard on my s-line. LMAO. Matt had my old wheel, he's over the moon! The wheel makes so much difference. Audi should have offered it as optional extra I reckon on non S3 models..

    Only thing stopping me from changing at the mo is I kinda like the perforated finish on the standard s-line wheel. If I could source a FBSW with perforations I'd be sold!

    ps Nice legs!

    Looks really good! Did you run into issues due to the DSG paddles?

    BTW, I cant believe you are a woman, due to the knowledge in your posts! I am amazed! :)

    Drooling over the wheel... Looks Super! Too bad your old one is sold already...

    Is is possible to show what the connector looks like? a part # perhaps?

    Thanks

    Wheel looks great mate... Something i have and am considering myelf. I had the chance to buy an RS4 flat bottom wheel with the aluminium inlays but the guy wanted silly money right there and then, had no way of checking it'd fit my A3 so i passed.
    Are all the flat bottom wheels multi function?

    Hi Guys. Right pm 'mattandrew' for pictures of the connector, he's got a part no. as well. To be honest it was 'drnutta' that told me about the connector as he has done this mod as well. Theres no problem with the DSG paddles, evreything works superb. My wheel came with a blank plate, so I bought the 's-line' badge from vag parts for about £20. Looks spot on now!

    That FBSW is sexual, looks loads better. What a difference it makes to your interior. Been looking a a few of these on ebay over the last few weeks.
