    if the original wheel has buttons instead of scroll wheels then the answer is a no, not under any circumstances....

    the 6 button wheled cars are 1/2 canbus.. the scroll wheeled cars are full canbus.. totally different wiring throughout the car....

    if by some fluke you have a very early 54 plate full canbus car with existing scroll wheels then you will need a new airbag as well as the changed the shape of that too..

    Wheels still look great BTW.....

    the steering wheel off the facelift will fit your pre-facelift but its the
    airbag thats normally the problem as its a different shape on the
    facelift than it is on the pre facelift,unless you have both the wheel and
    airbag off the facelift then you wont have a problem.

    dependant on the airbag wiring, On the internal slip rings, i don't see why not?..you'll be the first to try that i know off..and seeing your B, i think you'll prob find a way to do it as well..

    Nope, the connectors on the car are totally different and the controls are a different size. I looked into this when I was contemplating putting a facelift wheel on my pre-facelift - the controls are what scuppered it.

    You sure? Fitted the half-canbus controls (six buttons) onto a facelift wheel into a half-canbus car you mean? I can't see how given what I found when I looked at doing it. The connectors in the car are totally different and the six button controls won't physically fit onto a facelift wheel.

    if they have, hats off to them as they would had to mess around with the CanBus wiring and changed connectors.

    Found the thread. After reading the thread again, he didn't bother trying to make the buttons work, he just wanted the smaller steering wheel.
