Yes and no, the airbag and steering wheel controls are different, but the the wheel does fit but sits a bit further back towards the driver.
Not to say you can't get the rest of it working.

Somebody here had one fitted and was working on the controls and airbag, hopefully he''ll reply let you no how he went.

although it's doing the dodgey, if your only runnin 3rd party, why not? Then if you do get hurt you only have yourself to blame, If this is a fairly simple mod i might look into it.

i would also like to know how this is done? Is it as simple as tracing each wire from each wheel and joining it to the correct wire on the clock spring?

Can someone please clarify this?
