Hahaha... it will fit on the column but sits about an inch further back so reaching indicator stalk might be a bit difficult.... clock spring and airbag might give you some grief. . I said yuk as the Centre of the b series wheels are huge and to me look hideous. .lol.

Do what I did and fit the FG wheel...

EF/EL clock springs are the same
AU is different
BA/BF are different
FG is different

The BA wheel isn't so good...

You will need to keep your AU airbag and find a way to mount that in the hornpad...

All the buttons need to we re-wired... The cruise will be the biggest issue because one button does on and off... You need two... Again all this is detailed in my build thread...

Cheers,
Tim
