    Is anyone aware that a pair of steering wheel stereo controls from a dealer are £278 + VAT?

    For facelift or pre-facelift?

    Pre face with the little wheels for volume and trip computer as opposed to the earlier type with 3 buttons. What a total rip!

    Yup cos you can't buy just the controls on their own hence the price.

    I got a set for the wife's car for £21 from fleebay...and yup they work fine (pre-facelift with scrollers).

    Could you not find any on there.?..they do pop up quite regularly...but not as often as the half-can buttons.

    For what they are, Vx are definately taking the rip, but then if you want a set that are guaranteed to work, the dealer or an independent Vx specialist are the only routes to go.

    You must ensure however the the profile of the switch is correct, as the Astra-H ones are wired up differently, and the steering wheel rim has different scupted shaping on them (which the switch / controls are shaped to match)

    I'm aware they come as a pair and yes I've been looking on e-bay. Mine work fink, it's just the rubber grip bit on the thumb wheel has gone. How they can warrant £300 for them is unbelievable tho. Just done a bit of research and in the states, there's a Saturn that uses the same one's (colour may be different) but new are $112. Only in this country.......
