    yeh i wonder if there is an option for white stitching.

    thats still really nice, i thought it was perforated all round.. it would be nice if i could get one with white stictching to match my existing one... ill be going for a TTRS wheel when im ready... i got a thing about fresh matt steering wheels :wub:

    im also a bit confused cause every R8 ive seen has a slim wheel like the S3?? and they dont have an emblem at the bottom? :confused:

    I'd also like to know where you sourced your wheel from. I've been keeping an eye on eBay.co.uk & eBay.de for a while and looks like TT RS steering wheels are slim pickings.

    TT-RS wheel is more expensive. So get an RS6 as its cheaper and sell the chrome paddles, makes too much sense! :idea:

    like n8 has said the best option is to buy the RS6 wheel, if you have DSG then keep the paddels. If you have manual remove the paddels, sell them on as there chrome and worth a fortune. If your worried about the paddle holes which i was get hold of some standard paddles and remove the paddle part and fill with body filler and spray black.

    The RS6 wheel is a lot cheaper than the TTRS wheel

    Completely understand what you mean S3RYE as these are the exact same thoughts I had.

    Just to let you know the silver stitching is slight darker (obviously) that the white stitches on the S3 so not sure if that will effects your decision in doing the TTRS option. Still I prefer the full perf leather so that pretty much was the decider.

    All R8 wheels I've seen are the standard S3 wheels toos but maybe that because its ebay! Weirdness!

    Or just save yourself the hassle and leave them on. It's pretty unintrusive and more shiny silver to match the interior :undwech:

    Not a fan of either of those but maybe it's because I don't appreciate Carbon....

    Sorry for the thread theft about to happen!

    I have a 2001 s3, and I love the new age steering wheels. I'm wondering if I would need to change other external parts (boss, rack, etc etc) I understand obv. that paddles are a no go (duh). Anything in regard to airbags and ecu?

    Cheers in advance!

    You won't get multifunction working, and airbag won't work either.

    Yes, but not sure about the paddles/no paddles on a manual.

    I shipped a steering wheel for my Mk1 GTI from UK to Aus last year for around £50 IIRC...

    It was through these guys -> Parcel Delivery | Cheap Parcels

    Might have a winner here, and it turns out you can get RS6 wheels without paddles (and no holes)...

    Check out the Europrice gallery on Facebook; more steering wheel options than you can poke a stick at!

    The RS6 is auto only, so it has paddles full stop, I think the issue here is people label the thicker wheel as RS6, when infact it comes on other chassis aswell that arent autos, hence no paddles, so that wheel isnt from an RS6, unless the paddles were removed & its been recovered so no holes :)

    Anyway, as I advised, happy to help supply a wheel.
