I am thinking about getting a R32 Steering wheel to replace my standard three spoke Wheel. Is it easy to  install a new steering wheel, and are there any install guides out there to help you do this job. I have done a search but cannot find any information. Any advice welcome.

you really can see the diff between this one and the R32 wheel. the R32 wheel looks so much thicker and has the small grips... but also has a big price with it too....

Skoda Octavia vRS (01-05)

Looks the right shape. Can you still get these new? Look likes a good idea for people with worn steering wheels, but can't afford the R32 one lol.

Yeah, same for me, LOL!!! [:D]

I'm pretty sure my airbag will fit, I just need to confirm the size of the centre spline's the same, too.

Going back to the original question, it's not difficult to do.  Follow the instructions carefully and make sure you have the right spline tool.  It's really pretty straightforward.

if you've got a 3 spoke vw airbag you should be able to swap that over. You can't take the badge out of the airbag module unfortunately. might be able to find a suitably sized sticker on the bay though
