    Default New steering wheel?

    My steering wheel are as shown in the picture.
    Could I get myself a new steering wheel (leather) and just change it?

    If it's possible to change it, from which models and years?

    edit: and of course I forget to tell everyone that the car I'm speaking of is a Vectra C 2.0T Estate -05

    The OPs steering wheel is showing stereo controls that relate to full canbus. Won't the ages you're mentioning be halfcanbus controls?

    Read up on this canbus...looks like late 2004 to 2005 prefacelift also were full canbus...does this allow me to also look at steering wheels from 2006 and onward?

    The steering wheels on all of the pre-face cars were the same, just that some were full can and others were half.

    Ok, so there are differences anyway....even though it looks the same

    Is it possible to take an older wheel (not full canbus) and just lift over the controls from my wheel? Or are the intelligence in the wheel when it comes to half or full canbus?

    Why I'm asking are because there are lots of older leather multifunctional wheels out there, reasonable priced , but almost everyone of them are with the buttons and not the scroll wheels.

    yes as long they are prefacelift, they are interchangeable.. just change everything over(also the wiring in the steering wheel, then no problem)

    Changed my wheel now.
    Got hold of a wheel from a crashed Vectra (so sad), a 4-spoke leather one.
    It got the "old" type of controles but I changed all electric inside the wheel, just swapped it from one wheel to the other (just like stated in this topic, thx kenp)

    Also got good help from the Steering wheel removal/swap thread in How 2's.

    Thx everyone!
