in theory i cant see why not, but the steering wheel buttons on the ba have more functions than the e series ones. so their may be some issues with the clock spring.

if you need a ba wheel i have one!

if the splines are a match then it would fit ... whether there is an issue with how the airbag connects up and deploys you would have to check before. And like Ross said the buttons you might be able to tweak so they work ... have a go and report back with the results!!
