    An RS4 wheel, are you sure its an RS one? RS4's never had DSG so you'll never find one with paddles fitted!

    Yes you could fit it but the buttons on it will not work. You could butcher it to fit the paddles but it wont look very good!

    You'd be better off sourcing an S-line wheel with the paddles already fitted, then the multi-function buttons will work along with the paddles.

    He doesn't say it has the paddles!

    Think he means he has one without the paddles and he needs them for his car.

    The RS4 steering wheel isn't a multifunction steering wheel - three of the buttons are replacements for the up, down & reset on the wiper stalk and the other is the RS4-specific sport button. The only SCSM that will accept the coding to work with this wheel is a B7 A4 SCSM - so I can't see this being much use on an 8P A3...

    its 110% a rs4 multifunction steering wheel, it was a factory option when new, the only reason i have this now is because my uncle who brought the rs4 6 months old didnt like the wheel and has changed it back to a flat bottom "traditional" rs4 wheel
