Have been thinking of changing the wheel for a while now and was going to get a Momo one but have been keeping an eye on Alcantara RS ones and most have been going for around £200 so i feel i got it for a pretty good price. I also liked the RS leather ones and they go for bit cheaper but really wanted this one so well chuffed like!

May see if i can take the RS badge off and see if the sport one fits on, but will see as i dont wanna ruin it.

Here is another pic of what it should look like.

Yeah should be pretty cool.

Anyone have instructions on how to remove the old wheel and airbag?

Cheers

umm not too sure about that. is the airbag in your current steering wheel able to be swapped out to the RS4 one?

Yeah i think so because i think the insides of the both wheels are the same.

Nice pickup. I was wondering how much those go for, or how much it would cost to get my wheel re-wrapped, if such a thing is possible.

not only does it have to come with an airbag, but most places don't sell the clock spring with it either, which can be pricey. converting to a 3-spoke steering wheel from a 4-spoke can be tricky. =/

the screws in the back of the airbag let it come right out.(unplug it, and don't for get to undo the batt. terminal) then the it is straight forward from there. take the center nut off and proceed. not you may get a airbag light. just vag it off. mine stayed off fo 3 years.
