    Hi all,

    just thought I’d share my new addition today in my car.

    I believe these can be fit to any car that has keyless entry.

    it was fitted by @Aoon up in Glasgow at infinit performance. Can’t vouch for this guys workmanship enough, lovely bloke.

    Wow, that is a nice upgrade pal. Does drive select and the start button work?

    Looks great! Change the logo at the bottom asap tho ;)

    And btw it's a TTRS steering wheel and not from the R8, hence the RS logo.

    That just looks stunning. A great wheel that transforms the inside of the car. Now you’ve got me thinking!!

    Did you get the wheel supplied, fitted & programmed? Wouldn’t mind to hear what the cost was....pm if you like.

    Edit: just seen your post in the RS3 section. £1500 is steep, but I can see as to why it cost so much.

    the wheel itself was £660, airbag £240, retrim £180. RS badge £30. Then the fitting is £500. But you’re paying for the knowledge really, it’s about a 3h fitting job. But there’s only him in the UK who can do it. So at the end of the day, once you sell the wheel, it’s costing you £500.

    I approached them before I visited Aoon. I wasn’t very confident in their response.


    With regards to the R8 MFSW upgrade, I looked into this a while back and the guys that are doing it online are not doing a great job of the wiring through the slip ring so I wasn't something I was prepared to take further.
    However if there is a better solution online which you have seen, please forward me the link and I'll take a look at it for you.

    If it can be done a better way then previosuly seen, then we can assist with this, as a rough estimate the labour will be an hourly rate at £75 + VAT per hour and could take anywhere from 3-5 hours”

    I thought alix on here was the first person to be able to do this retro fit.
    Someone had this done by him a few years back on there heavily modified rs3, along with the virtual dash added, may be wrong though of course

    @DJAlix have you ever fitted a TT 8S steering wheel into a A3 FL 8V?

    Without going into your secrets of your business, but is it a straight swap or is there coding needed on top?

    Thanks @DJAlix. Totally agree for you to say no more....it’s your livelihood after all. Out of curiosity, my query is relation to standard TT/TTS wheel, not the RS version - does it still need lots of work to for get the standard wheel to work?

    Is the wheel you are looking at fitting one with extra start / stop and Drive mode buttons?

    While not plug and play retrofitting this wheel is pretty straight forward.
