    Default Steering wheels????

    Hi guys, I have a 2005 preface C my current steering wheel is a 4 spoke with the scroll controls, I am looking at the leather three spoke wheels on eBay and most of the ones I'm looking at have the 6 button controls.

    i have a alpine stereo in now so the stereo controls on the steering wheel are redundant anyway so not too bothered about them, but I have read that the cars with scroll controls are full can and the 6 button are half can, and this means there is two different air bag types.

    so basically will a 6 button three spoke leather wheel (complete with its own airbag) fit and all plug in and work properly in my car, well the air bag anyway.

    hope I haven't been too confusing! Any help will be great thanks!

    Not really looking to spend what they are going for if I'm honest so if I can use one mentioned above that would be ideal, otherwise I will just get a facelift

    I'm more concerned about the air bag working as I thought the half can have a stage 1 and full can have stage 2?

    Vehicle : Facelift Insignia/Corsa D

    Trim : LE/VXR

    Engine : 2.0 cdti/1.6 Turbo

    Iirc the single stage airbag deployment was only on the very early 52/03 Vecs. My 53 plate and 54 plate both had dual stage airbag deployment so it's got nothing to do with full can/half can.

    So would you say a 6 button would work on mine? It's a 54 plate but as I say has the scroll control wheel currently.... Here's the sort of wheel I want to put on http://item.mobileweb.ebay.co.uk/vie...id=98882860890
