    Changing the steering wheel...

    ...Seen on a few posts about the VXR steering wheel being chunkier than the standard one, and although i'm driving a MK4 not MK5, would it still be able to swap over? Or is there a "chunky" MK4 alternative?

    It WILL fit, just can't wire the airbag up.

    Keep your eye out on ebay for a Coupe Turbo, or GSi steering wheel.

    The coloured part in the above pic is Gun Metal Grey, however it can be recoloured (mine is slightly lighter).
