This method only works for B6/B7 cars because their steering wheel electronics are the same in every car no matter what steering wheel was installed at the factory.

Sorry...that would make sense wouldn't it. I have a 2004 B6 S4 which currently has the steering wheel with paddle controls. I have a RNS-e 192C model installed for over a year now.

This will cost you about $1500 from the dealership for the steering wheel and airbag. Yes, you do need both.

Keep searching ebay, you'll find them on there occasionally.

So did you have to buy a new MFSW control unit, like NSX JR had originally said here, and all the re wiring?

I'm kind of confused then when NSX JR says "This method only works for B6/B7 cars because their steering wheel electronics are the same in every car no matter what steering wheel was installed at the factory."

Doesnt steering wheel eletronics mean, the control unit?

Yes, the B6/B7 have the control unit built into the steering column electronics, unlike the C5 and B5 which have a separate control unit under the dash.

So, for B6/B7 cars (if equipped with cruise control or tiptronic steering wheel from the factory) these will already have the correct SCSM to simply plug and play a MFSW.

For B5 or C5 cars it takes more work to retrofit a MFSW if it was not fitted from the factory.
