    I have a FBMFSW in my A4, looking to swop it for a normal 3-spoke MFSW plus a small cash adjustment. Any interest/takers?

    Ye Isaac, you about to sell it fella cause you only did that a short while ago

    What sorta price did you want for it overall anyway cause I dont have one to swap but there's plenty on the bay.

    I am selling my A4 and there is no increase in the trade-in price if I leave the FBMFSW in the car. It is 100% mint condition.

    No seperate sale price as I need a steering wheel in my A4!

    Yup, It'll need to be the usual 3-spoke S-line version with multifunction and NO gear change paddles.

    Ideally the exchange wheel needs to be on my A4 in the next 10 days max.

    I live in Hampshire so if anyone wants it they can drive down to swop it over.

    £100 + your normal MFSW (+airbag of course!) is what I'd like ideally.

    just got back from meeting Ian at the services, spent an hour swapping steering wheels, would have been quicker but a some wiring 'depinning' was required.

    Well chuffed with it now, feels and looks great, drove an S3 a while back with one on and i always wanted one and now i got one!

    wouldn't say it be worth the £400+ people are paying for them but all smiles when its £100!

    Makes you wanna do more town driving so you can use more steering lock!

    No John was correct 1st time round, part numbers for rear covers are correct as I have a bagged brand new pair for my car which havnt fitted yet due to wiring work, you can see he's right cause 13/14 are at the front where as covers are at rear as per 17

    13/14 are inserts where the multi function dials/buttons are when you have a wheel that isnt MF
