    Are you wanting to install yourself, you will need vcds for sure to code up & remove any errors on install.

    So you dont have the round airbag with the wheel cause these arent cheap at all, I can get prices for new slip ring/steering cu if interested, maybe find an airbag but lowest I've seen was £350ish, new are way above that.

    i suppose you could make a hybrid airbag if you used your origional airbag and a new cover not something i would want to toy around too much with id need to see the cover and the airbag together to come up with a fitment solution and i aint shelling out 80 quid for acover on a maybe

    No thats incorrect, its when fitting a dual stage airbag to a single stage controller on pre-05 8p's thats the question if will function or not, as yours is 05 then you most likely have the dual stage controller/airbag setup already, so shouldnt be an issue, but sticking your old airbag & the cover on, well wish you luck, personally I wouldnt & also whether it will line up with the fbmfsw bolts.

    sorry to hijack, i'm not interested in this mod right away but i thought i might as well ask now instead of starting another thread later.

    i've got a 2006/55 S-Line with an MFSW. what do i need to install a FBMFSW aside from the wheel and airbag? do i still need an ECU and slip ring?

    cheers in advance!
