      as Jason (kwanja_a3) said this mod is sick cause you will enjoy driving your car every time you get in, the ride will feel nicer in your hands...not that i don't enjoy getting into my car now

      My guess, no less then $600 for non-multi-function... and no less then $700 for multi-function I then assume that it'll cost more for DSG as well. And by the way, that's just for the steering wheel. Then you have to get an airbag (assume $500+)

      with out group buy pricing i can get TT-S Flat-Bottom w/ Airbag for $1145 shipped. hoping with the buying power we have now with almost 20 ppl we can get much better deal.
      i stumble across sets on ebay.co.uk / .de for $975+sh.
      wheel alone (from US Vendors) is $745 and like krazyboi said airbag is anywhere between $400-$600 when purchasing single bag.

      Is it possible to install and wire a wheel with controls to an a3 that came without?

      I'm down for this. Add me to the list. I have an S-line with DSG.

      something to be aware of... the A8 and TT also use the same round airbag (only difference is the A8 bag has a chrome trim ring on the center of the bag)
      with shipping restrictions on the airbag (its explosive so no airmail) you may be better off doing a buy only for the steering wheel and getting airbags from a local dealer.
      Do not allow children to mix your martini. It is unseemly and they use too much vermouth.

      Wheel gap can be compared to a vagina. The more fingers you can stick in the worse off you are.

      I would keep search ebay in germany/austria/UK because I bought mine for a just about $600 shipped from Germany with the airbag. You can even get a steering wheel, minus the airbag, and it still would have been cheaper than the dealership or any other website. just my 2 cents.

      yes it will work no problem
      And FYI, S3, TT-S, TT, R8 use the same harness and clockspring as our cars so only wheels for these cars are plug n play, any others i.e A8,RS6,RS4,S8 require some rewiring

      both are fairly pricey hence the reason for group buy.

      Can't we just stuff the existing airbag into the round hole, and maybe buy the round cover?

      Even if you could, I wouldn't feel safe driving after, maybe that's just me

      I remember driving around forever with a Momo steering wheel on my 84 GTI.... Ya, it never had an airbag to begin with, but it didn't make me scared to drive it.... I guess its more about looks than safety for me.

      Or in the old days with the American barges, steer the car fast into a turn, the whole car tilts outward, and the driver slides across the bench seat into the passenger side
