    Incorrect.

    If you have a full canbus prefacelift then yes but you cannot just swap button controls for scroll wheel controls due to the canbus issues.
    Now I need a turbo to keep up!

    definitely not.
    the pre and post cars have different shaped airbags, and the thumbwheel assemblies are a slightly different shape. it's not that obvious from pictures, but when you offer them up you can see the shape difference.

    it is, but you need the airbag too.
    i know all this because i bought a nice looking facelift wheel off e bay for my pre. when compered with my car's wheel i could see the airbags would be different. if nothing else, i thought, i would swap the thumbwheel bits over as mine are a bit worn, but even those were different. i sold it to someone on here at cost price.

    but if i buy it all from facelift , new controls, new airbag and new steering wheel, will it work on a prefacelift?
    can it be connected so that the airbag and radio controls work?

    as long as your car has thumbwheels now, i believe so. some airbags had one plug, and i think some had 2, but i never got that far, and i think you would be better finding out how many your car has before going further.
