    Steering Wheel Swap

    Guest-only advertisement. Register or Log In now!
    Pondering a wheel swap on my 2010 3.0t. I currently have the Tan interior with the greyish tan steering wheel (Piment Grey?). Just looking for some opinions on going full out rs6, flat bottom or sticking with the OEM color, just with the paddle shifters. Here is the one I am currently looking at :

    https://picclick.co.uk/Audi-A6-C6-A8-D3-Grey-4-Spoke-132481876560.html

    I'm torn between this one and possibly picking up a flat bottom and having it reconditioned to match current interior.

    My car is very subtle, oem +. Main reason for changing is simply the paddle shifters.

    Will a C7 steering wheel work or do I have to stick with the C6?

    Have Vag-com so coding paddles isnt an issue. Just looking for some feedback from you guys/girls.

    Thanks

    If you have Tan interior... the wheel should be Moore Brown

    The European S3 came with a Moore Brown flatbottom and paddle shift.
    Apparently if you can find and get programmed its works in our C6's

    I seriously feel like that's a totally different car from what I have....

    I love black interior over anything, but this just looks clean as fuck!!!!


    What steering wheel is that? It totally changes the car. I would like to have that steering wheel for my car in black leather.

    I have a steering wheel from a C7 in my C6. Took me a while to figure out how to make the buttons work but i got it. Much better feel and look compared to the C6 4-spoke i had.

    It was a treat.

    The flat bottom wheels are nice! I didnít think I would like it, but I love mine!

    Is it possible to put the cutout before the catalytic converter?

    Or even in this case will it do nothing?

    I am also interested in the sound as well

    Not in the stock location. Also if the cats are downstream they will be subjected to less heat and fair much better.

    Are you aware of cooling options for c6.5 a6 3.0t

    Every cooling upgrade seems to only apply to b8 s4

    Is that a stage 1 airbag or 2? I thought the stock steering wheel was similar to the B7.

    the steering wheels changed from our C6 style when the B8.5 came out, along with the C7 and a couple others around that time. I have here a 8K steering wheel which i believe is dual stage airbag. I have plugged in single stage before and it also worked. We are supposed to use a dual stage?
