    Hi guys,

    Has anyone done this yet? If so could you please provide me with part number for the steering wheel as well as instructions for install?

    TIA

    Thanks Nathan! Yeah its been a while dude...received a PM from Keith and realized damn I havn't been here in forever lol! If you don't mind me asking because I can't really see the diff in the pics....what is the diff between the S3 and RS6 steering? Just the perforated bit? or is it more chunkier?

    RS6 wheel is chunkier, same thickness as B7 RS4 and the TT-RS and RS6 are the same thickness also.

    shaun- so you keeping the s now...? :) any specific reason why the std flat bottom s3 steering wheel is not good enough...? I'd prefer if it had a bit of extra "beef" to it but otherwise I cannot really fault it- well let us know the price...:happy:

    Car is still pretty much for sale Johan...problem is there are just way too many bullshitters out there. After checking the TT RS out last week, the only bit in the interior that grabbed my attention was the steering wheel because it is seriously chunky! If in the event I don't sell this may very well be my next mod....

    @dbndude- agree with you 'bout the chunkier feel so the s3's is a little slim in comparison... can be a cool mod if the price is ok-

    cool bean's shaun- yep unfortunately so as our cars are quite pricey you'll need a serious buyer for sure... from past experience (sold all my previous cabs privately) I guess your price point is vital when you do find "an approved" buyer- you'll have to be negotiable...as they're far and in between...
    Steering wheel will def be a cool addition to your already uber hot ride... let me know pricing if you have an idea...:cool:

    Seems a good price, not much more than I paid for my regular Latvian (or was it Bulgarian?) FBMFSW on the Bay.

    Its not a bad price, seeing as you'd have the old FBSW to sell along with 2 brand new chrome DSG paddles which cost £250 from Audi! So you'd get an RS6 wheel for very little!

    Matt's a great help, and an asset to this forum pete!

    I agree - but happy enough with mine, and I'm not a steering wheel whore, so will stick with what I've got. At that price from Audi, who needs stolen ones from eBay anymore?

    Not disagreeing. And it's good to see you're not afraid to share your manlove for him :)

    Fair enough Pete, you seem happy with your car and the mods, you've done, thats what its about, enjoying it! Few more things with mine, and I'm 100% happy with it! I'll start spending money on the girlfriend again :undwech:

    I love you as well :wub::undwech:

    Not really, quite bored with my car in fact! And unsure with the black car / black wheel combo. I never wanted a black A3, and wish I'd held out for a different colour. But it's a reasonably quick way to get around, and when it's clean it looks ok. I've never really bonded with it though, and will be pleased when I've got the cash together to change it for something that does do it for me!

    Dunno, going to stick with this for the next while, until I've got a fair bit more cash to spend.

    I prefer bigger cars, but loads of thoughts going through my head - Touraeg V10 TDI, A6 3.0 TDI... and then maybe something fun and RWD for weekends. If I want something to tick both boxes, an M3 would probably be top of my list.

    What I really want is a white R8, but think that's a couple of years off, as need to do more saving, and move house, as my garage doors aren't wide enough to fit one - I've measured hehe.
