    Default Steering wheel 3 spoke/4 spoke

    General question here. I understand that if you have a 4 spoke steering wheel then you can only replace it with another 4 spoke and the same goes for 3 spoke.

    I just want to know why, anyone? Thanks

    I read it again and I think I get it now. It must be to do with the wiring for the radio controls.

    You can swap a 3 spoke with a 4 spoke, but you need to change the air bag also. The can/half can bus is to do with the buttons/wheel controls on the steering wheel its self. If you have buttone, you cannot fit a later "wheel" control one. Not wothout major alterations to the canbus anyway. hth
    Now I need a turbo to keep up!
