    Looking at changing my standard not MF steering wheel for a FBMFSW and have come accross at FBMFSW from a TT complete with air bag part no 8J0 419 091L. Will this fit my A3 or not. I know there is a need for a new slip ring and new wiring for FBMF capability.

    Any help would be graet:sos:

    Thanks
    Tom

    Yes it will fit, I'm sure Matt or Nigel will answer the question about the slip ring...

    Thanks for that. Nigel mentioned about fitting one in an earlier post so will get in touch. Just need to sort a s-line badge to replace the tt one on the wheel!

    Cheers

    What sort of price have you seen it for as I might have one going soon with the alum/chrome paddles, perf leather & silver stitching if interested.

    Nigel's steering wheel is very nice. Especially with alu paddles, which cost £250 from audi dealers..

    Selling mine now tbh, but it wont be as low as £450 mate sorry.

    I personally cant stand the TT wheel with 2 lines of white stitching, wasnt comfortable at all to drive with mate, but your choice.

    PM if seriously interested.

    Would also be worth noting in each of these fbmfsw threads that on certain cars it may make the airbag useless?

    I need to buy one without the airbag as it can't be shipped by air with the airbag. Know where I can purchase one? All the ones on Ebay I can find come with.
