AU+ have a square with rounded edges steering column. So it won't fit on to the E series multi spline type.

please don't post incorrect info.

ef-fg have square spline including xh's that use the ef style wheel, your issue is if you have an airbag fitted as opposed to a long reach horn pad.
The airbag issue is a little complicated although can be overcome, but you still risk a legal complication.
also cruise etc. is a bit of screwing around.

what's the legal prblems? i thought if i put the wheel on with the airbag still working it'd be alright? :?

Yeah a few other threads I've corrected in the past, pretty much unless you've dealt with it don't post with that much certainy, but anyway.

ba baf went to a duel trigger system you may the system has to to measure a 2 ohm resistance, so I fyou were to set them up in parrell(maybe it's series do more research into this as I always get myself confused despite the amount I've done with electronics.)
but you'd also want to look into how to work out what current it requires encase you'll need to add an amplified power source, I never got around to going further with that side of things.

anyway you have that potential possibility legally your not really allowed to mess around with airbag so you risk having to convince that it would work as per usual you also risk giving the insurance companies a loophole after all in quite a number of accidents particularly with e series(some cars are a lot more prone to deploying.) the airags don't deploy. so it's not like you can even use the line well everything all right the airbag deployed after all. it's why we abandonned the project.

personally I prefer an ef/el/au momo wheel ovr the ba wheels, not a fan of them just feel to chunky etc.
but that's personal opinion though.
