    Your airbag won't fit, the one your looking to buy is from an a4 by the looks of it and i know there different airbags to the a3.

    The ONLY way you can tell if your airbag will fit that wheel is to remove it from your existing wheel and look to see if the fitments are the same. The problem lies with the angle of the screws that fasten the airbag to the wheel. Some airbags have a steeper angled base plate than others.

    I will try and find a picture of both.

    I have looked at both but can't copy the photos but I think it WILL fit.

    Sorry A3_sline but if you look carefully you will see two studs, just inside the line of the two screws. The A3 has these and the A4 doesn't

    Agree with Mike. That wheel is from an A3 so his current airbag should fit. The A4 wheels do not have the studs also the MFSW connector is at the 2 o'clock position. On the A4's it is at the 4 o'clock position.

    You should be fine mate. Sorry I never replied back to your message the other day, been really busy.
    You will still need a highline F steering module which I still have, plus you will also need a new airbag loom which cost £40.
    If still interested mate, PM me. The module is £95 plus postage. I can also source the new loom for you.

    Oh yes I see now was only quick glance on my iPhone screen is too small lol. Your airbag will fit then, I have had many off and on and they are all the same to me that is. I also have a highline F steering module that comes with brand new cruise stalk as well £130 plus postage. Might as well do cruise whilst it's all off.
