    Yeah i seen you get 5 and 6 speed sticks on the sri too so its just a straight swap like the cdti.

    The controls i don't mind as i don't really yous them anyway but would like them to light up so they look like they do lol but say i get one with no air bag is the airbag a straight swap or will i need to get one with a airbag.

    I'm pretty sure the air bags are different. Pre facelift is different to facelift on vectra too.

    If ur preface is full can then yes facelift steering wheel will fit however airbag is different shape so u will need new one
    as for the Astra steering wheel it will fit u would need to swap metal plate from facelift vectra in order to controls to work , iirc Astras have single plug airbag where vectras is two

    I've already swapped a astra sri steering wheel to a vectra and it was a straight swap and i used my own buttons and airbag but that was a full can thats why im asking cos the GSI is half can it would only be the airbag connections i will be worried about not being the same but i cant see why there not the steering wheel looks the same shape.
