I found a really nice looking A8 steering wheel out of an 04, and I was wondering if it'd fit the B5? I have a 99, so I don't have the 96/97 awkward spline. On top of fitment, can I make the airbag work? Is there wiring involved? Thanks, heres the link:

That's pretty cheap for a wood grain steering wheel

Edit: fitment will work, not sure about the working airbag though, but it is a direct bolt on.

Thanks! I really want to get this into my car, but I need to know if I'll be able to hook up an airbag somehow

Keep in mind, the airbag is probably going to be really expensive for that wheel. I would definitely put money on the fact that it is going to be way over $100 for the airbag. If the airbag doesn't work at least you'll have a really nice looking wheel

annnnnnnnnd you'd be correct, the airbag is no cheaper than $200 used... [:(] I don't think I can justify spending that kind of money on a steering wheel right now. Anyways, if anyone else wants to buy it, feel free! I've spent a while looking for one of these wheels because they look super nice, and they are really hard to find, and that looks like a decent price! I'd love to see one in a B5 [up]

Psh...Airbags.

Might pick it up. There's an A8 in my local junkyard I just saw yesterday with the complete wheel intact.
