Well, first - I think EVERY current steering wheel will fit - the splines are the same from an A3 to an R8 - that said though, the button options are MANY, and THAT's where the tricky bits are. Second, not all button sets fit every wheel, cuz while the splines are the same, the wheels themselves are a bit varied and the trim is too.
Whew, now that I've covered the basics, here's the easy part. First - check the airbag and be SURE your'e looking at a wheel that has the same size and shape - be careful, round is NOT round is NOT round. There are side profile differences and diameters to be certain of. Second, check the button sets (and paddles or not) - be SURE that they are the same too-
If all of the above is the same or as close as you can tell, then you are 100% certain it will fit, and 99% certain that it will work as well. Lastly, as some above have noted, you will prolly need to have your new buttons (and paddles if you have/want them) coded - because the car (at J519) will see these as different - by serial number not just part number). If you transfer your old buttons (and paddles) then you may just have to clear a disconnect fault, and not recode.
