    Has anyone replaced their existing flat bottom steering wheel with the tag motorsports carbon fiber one?

    I am looking at the one in the website*https://tagmotorsports.com/neidfakto...-s5-rs5-rs3-s3

    How easy was it to replace? a

    Have done a few for customers and the installation is a snap. You would reuse your airbag, unclip airbag, unplug, undo the center bolt and slide old wheel off. Slide new on and reverse procedure:

    That above photos has the optional performance controls added. Those do add some wiring and components in, but can be added if wanted as well:

    If you have any questions do let me know or PM/email: contact@europrice.us

    Cheers,

    Have you attempted installing the RS3 8V steering wheel in to a B8 S4? And if at all possible?

    It is possible with a micro adapter which just translate the multi-function control inputs to what the car does now. I did test personally and found that the micro adapters lagged and had issues so wasn't an OE quality upgrade. You also end up with 3-4 buttons that do not function at all and some that are repetitive.

    Cheers,

    Iíll probably be better off with the RS5 wheel then. Laggy and unused buttons will do my head in!!

    They look amazing and I'd love to get one, but for $2k its pretty steep to justify a standard steering wheel with some carbon. Plus I loose out on my heated steering too, if they can get the non-carbon portions to work with the heated steering wheel option then yeah it'll push me closer to buying one
