    The single plug looks like a single stage airbag where as the other one is a dual stage airbag, the two systems are not compatible and the airbag will not fire in a crash (Has been proven on other forums.) you may also get an airbag warning light on the dash if you try and wire both stages together, and you may even get a face full of airbag if the wiring is done wrong.....

    Could be the base models had single stage etc, I know the A4 changed in 2005 with the introduction of the B7 but not sure about the VW range. You may be able to fit a dual stage controller but it would require modules, harness and slip ring but not 100% on that.
