    Not sure if it will, but would be easy to check. To take the airbag of is just 2 screws on the back of the wheel. Just make sure you disconect your battery and leave for 20 mins to let the capasitors to discharge. If you are planning on fitting that wheel, the new stereo controls (Roller type) wont work! Different conector apparently. Not sure if you would be able to use you old ones (three buttons) that was a question I was going to ask. Hope that helps and not to confuseing.

    Steering wheel controls will not work as Rushy says. I am certain that the airbag will not fit either as I was looking at a SRi wheel of a facelift yesterday at my mates VX breakers

    Think the Airbag plugs are different also.

    Pre facelift and face lift airbags deffo don't interchange. (forgetting early single and twin plug diffo)
    Tried on my 06 car n the early bag is a diffo shape, even tho it looks very similar.

    4 Types of airbag used on Vectra C's... (I think...)

    1. 4 spoke half canbus, with single plug
    2. 3 spoke half canbus with single plug, from early SRI's
    3. 3 spoke twin plug full canbus for late pre-facelift cars
    4. 3 spoke twin plug full canbus for facelift

    I've got an 05 plate SRi, and it's a full Canbus so has the pink and yellow airbag plugs on the back, but is the pre-facelift style. It meant that to fit my VXR steering wheel I had to get a facelift airbag to go with it, meaning the whole set-up cost me 250 squid...


    But my god was it worth it - it feels amazing, and is a must if you do long distance driving...

    best thing I ever did was fit an Sri wheel to mine. Much better feel.
