    The reason I ask is that I just won this on Ebay, I had to have it as there's no way I could afford or even justify paying the cost of an Irmscher one, and it would look soooo much better than my existing leather 4 spoke one too

    Is someone going to tell me that this will indeed work with a pre-facelift model

    No.

    As your car is a 2002, it will have the six little buttons for controlling the stereo. The facelift will have the little scroll wheels and that will definitely not fit onto yours - different connectors. As Astrase20 said, I looked at this a while back and after partly taking apart my wheel and a facelifts wheel I sussed that it was a no-go.

    On top of that, with that being a three spoke (what you bought) and yours being a four spoke - you'd also need to get a three-spoke airbag as well.
