Sorry, the MFSW part number i gave you was the 2006 spec version.. ie.. with Menu control on the right hand side... and voloum on left. I am not too sure if u can still get the 2004-2005 version of the MFSW as new... but i can check for u. I will also check to see if the MF control modules on the steering will be different or if that also been replaced.Hi Aric
Thanks allot for the information it is most appreciated... what did people do before the internet!
Ideally I would like to keep to the standard 05 MFSW with DSG paddles. Want to keep to the 05 style buttons as that is what is in the car handbook and I want to be able to operate my 'Full' VW Nokia 6310i telephone system that I fitted via the wheel as per the handbook too. You mention that the colour of the wheels is now black and not grey is this true of just the GTI Wheel or standard wheel too? Dont want to spend ?400 on a new wheel and it be a different colour to the dash.
Do you envisage any problems with the operation fo the DSG with it being a 05 model car? Will the single module change accomodate that operation?
Hope you can find the pictures they woudl be usefull too.
Regards and thanks one again for your help
Mine is a 2006 spec car, and the standard SW and the dash are kind of black colour... I know earlier version of standard sw was gray... and earlier GTi SW was in gray/black. Not too sure about the dash in grey or not thou. Either way.. i think black SW is acceptable even if your dash is kind of grey.. its the other way round that i think i won't like... if your airbag is kind of grey colour...i am sure u can put some dash cleaning stuff to make it black / darker... unless u want to pay ?500 for a new airbag!!
THe telephone system should still work...at least there are the button on the MFSW... as i dont' have phone system installed, i won't be able to say for sure...
I haven't had any problems with the paddles for gear changes.. Paddles sw works for both DSG and normal auto tiptronic cars. As long as you have the right canbus module... you should be fine...
Oh,, you might also need a different slip ring to support the extra controls from the MFSW / canbus. The one you will need 1k0 959 653C... depends on which one your car came with.. . mine already came with the later version to work with the canbus module.
