    first mod for the B5

    Guest-only advertisement. Register or Log In now!
    Super excited for this. I had a euro FBSW on my B7 and honestly it was one of my favourite mods for that car. Put a B8.5 one on my B8 avant and wanted to find something similar for the B5. Seems like people have retro fitted B7s but they require a little rewiring which i didn't want to deal with. Ended up getting this made by "the guy in poland" from ebay. Quality looks nice and it's much thicker than any of the OEM wheels. My OEM wheel is perforated all around with black stitch so i kept that look. Eventually i'll probably get some interior shots

    I'm pretty happy with the quality for the price so far. Of course we'll have to see how it holds up lol.

    I actually ordered from him directly because i wanted a configuration not immediately available on ebay. No problems, although he took almost as long as it took to deliver to get me the tracking number.

    Check out how much thicker it is than my OEM B8.5 wheel! It's also a little larger in diameter but i'm pretty sure the OEM B5 wheel is actually a little larger than the OEM B8.5 wheel.

    Thanks! He will do pretty much any combo you want of badge, stitching, smooth/alcantara/perforated. I'm not 100% sure about other generations but since it's just the wheel and not the bag, i assume he can do whatever.

    This was the original auction i found https://www.ebay.com/itm/Steering-Wh...M/132789146255

    and his contact info is on the bottom of the page: reggi.csw@gmail.com

    Got the wheel in, it's pretty dang thick so will take a little getting used to but i really like it. I also wish the diameter of the wheel was slightly smaller like the B8. Also the second mod (really a return to stock) for the headlights.

    Funny thing, this had some missing pixels and the date and time was messed up. Turns out it was coded wrong and once fixed Aaron found the display only will show the time in 24hour and the date will only show month:day:year but at least it works and i'm pretty used to both.

    Smart choice with the perf vs alcantara. I have an all alcantara from him and it has worn significantly (almost smooth). Expected I guess now thinking about it. Wish I had done at least a combo with perf on sides and alcantara top/bottom.

    I've never really liked alcantara on the wheel itself honestly. Maybe it's because i feel like if my hands ever sweat it just feels uncomfortable ;) Also i think the 'air leather' matches the rest of the car interior a bit more but if i had alcantara inserts i'd probably consider doing at least partial like you said. One of the guys on the B5 forums did up a custom shift knob that more matches the wheel but he sold it before i could but it :( maybe he'll do another though since my wheel is more matte and the oem knob and wheel are pretty shiny.
