    Is it possible to remove and fit this steering wheel to this one without any airbag trouble?

    If you're wanting to go from the top wheel to bottom wheel, you'll need both the new wheel and new airbag as your old one won't fit.

    And also maybe a steering module if you don't already have a MFSW or DSG

    Yep, and coding when fitted.

    It's certainly not cheap to retrofit a FBMFSW!

    The retrofit cost me 130 for the wheel, 220 for airbag and 40 for the harness
