    Very cool.

    Also, I like the disclaimer at the start.

    very good write up.

    But for a new/modern car, i would leave the job for the pro. better than stuff up myself.

    that would be on the list after APR stage 1 on my Tig. it would be nice to go with R wheel... same power as R with APR but just heavier... lol

    Wheel is awesome - did it with a friend (getting the airbag out is recommended as a 2 person job)

    You have to remove the airbag to get to the bolt which holds the steering wheel on.

    More specifically the "two person job" isn't really removing the airbag. It's removing the "horn / airbag cover" which can be a royal PITA on MK6 Golf era steering wheels.

    Yes, you have to try to see the clips and undo them (need a mirror or phone camera) to get the horn off, airbag pops out as well. Then undo the bolt, take the wheel off, and keep the steering bolt dead straight, and put the new wheel on in the same position as you took the old one off, otherwise you might find the car turns left when the wheel is straight, etc. Then just put everything back on and change the code with VCDS.

    Keep the new airbag with the new wheel. Was a slightly different shape in my case anyway.

    I bought my wheel through that Ebay seller. He was very good to deal with.

    Thanks for that new e bay link,that seller's price is quite a bit better than the uk website.They [uk site]have not bothered to reply to my email,so i think will give them a miss and go with the above ebay link.Thanks for your help.Also to Brendan A.
