    Looking for some info. Can anyone tell me if this was an OE interior, or was it a one off conept/show piece? I have already sourced the steering wheel, and we all know those are pole position seats, but was it a factory option? I am especially interested in the black chrome door levers. Any ideas anyone? In essence, if it was a factory option ('s), then it should be possible to get all these parts from the dealers, providing you could obtain the part number....?

    IIRC ALL Rs4 had black levers, Byzan A4 has done this mod himself by spraying them

    thats nice!, never seen black door/dash trim before

    the suede gearknob is very easy, strip the o.e leather and reverse it, instant suede knob

    I think pole positions were an RS4 option, but i'm not certain.

    The handles are standard and are available from Audi, but they're 20-30quid each, and it would be far cheaper to simply get a set from a breakers and have them painted or powdercoated satin black. I'm trying to arrange some for our car atm.

    I've heard a few times that the alacantara steering wheel and knobs dont stand up to normal use very well, as the oils from your hands stain them and make them look all shitty.

    Yep, black door pulls are standard on RS4.

    Have seen this pic before and was a debate on it then, cant mind the outcome but sure it was possibly factory done but only to order i think.

    The gearknob is alcantara. Ref the steering wheel, I have found a bod on ebay who sells RS4 and S-Line alcantara wheels. They are exactly the same as in the pic....The powdercoating idea seems like a good idea. Sod paying £120 for 4 door levers!! Alcantara is at its best mated to a similar surface (albeit driving/racing gloves). It is not very pourus so sweat can be a problem. If I buy one I will be using my airbag. My leather wheel is bolloxed (very worn/tacky) and I wanted to upgrade to something better. I would like an OE flat bottomed wheel but This + the airbag is a fortune!! I love the DTM look, so will prob end up going Alcantara......

    This is the bod on fleabay.......http://cgi.ebay.co.uk/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?ViewItem&item=330316997511&ssPageName=STRK:MEWAX:IT

    I have phoned the Audi dealership and they assure me that the airbags are the same....I have also contacted the seller and he tells me the same thing. Luckily I havnt bought anything yet, so you guys can advise before some twat sells me a wheel with a different airbag fitment after telling me its right!!!!!

    Gotcha! I can see it now! There is a sligth difference in the shape. So I would need an airbag from a B6. That would bump the price up considerably. Don't think its worth it......You know its a bloody shame some bright spark with the right tools/know how dosn't make some airbag carcesses. Just the plastic shell, with no airbag internals. For people that are not bothered about airbags, it would be ideal. They could make them in any shape, at about 10% the cost of a shell with an airbag built in....

    no you don't
    search on here, I have that wheel mated to a TT bag. problem is the missing horn ring when you get the wheel.
    The ring comes with a harness for the horn and the bag, no connector issues.

    I bought the alcantara wheel, a TT wheel (for the ring/harness) (£50) a TT bag (£180). sold my orginal bag for £150, the wheel for £70 and the TT wheel for £50 (minus the ring obviously!) made the alcantara wheel much cheaper when you have sold on all the bits

    as for alcantara, yes it does get shitty, especially if the greasy wankers at the garage doing my geometry decide to move it around without cleaning their hands! I just whip it of every 6 months or so and give it a good scrub.
    cleans up great, no stains.
    I got it as I hate the sweaty feeling you get with leather and I am not quite ready for some string back driving gloves.....
    Alcantara wheels are a much nicer feeling and this one is thicker than stock. I would do it again in my next car straight away.

    Ahh, thats where the pics from. Interesting.....

    I've decided I'm going to get a B6 wheel complete with airbag. Nick the horn ring and the bag, and then put them on the alcantara one. Then put my sport one complete up for sale.

    Job done.

    I owuld imagine a B6 wheel and bag is more expensive than a TT wheel and bag though.

    I searched for my old post but couldn't find it. have some pics if you need any help

    RS4 Airbag is listed as PN: 8E0880201S

    that number cross references to these cars:

    http://www.vagcat.com/epc/find/?art=8E0880201S


    Oddly the part number on the ebay listing is not actually an RS4 wheel.

    That wheel is apparently part number 8E0 419 091 AC
    the RS4 wheel is part number 8D0419091AC

    The part number given is apparently a tiptronic heated wheel from a 03-05 B6 carbio...

    Hello mate. Yeah I spent half the night searching for your post too, and all I could find were the ones where you were advising people on changing wheels/airbags etc.
    If you have any pics of the installation, that would be terrific!!

    Remember what I was saying about someone knocking out airbag covers/shells only?......I have found some, at a FRACTION of the cost of the complete unit. For those that are not bothered about an airbag, this would be ideal.....I am now seriously considering a flat bottomed wheel due to the fact I wouldnt have to shell out 300+ on an airbag unit. I wonder if you can get this part from the dealer too?.........

    You are on drugs. It looks like someone has just sprayed everything matt black and the steering wheel looks like it has a cheap steering wheel cover from Halfrauds. :p
