    I would like to know if I can install a steering wheels w/paddle shifters (NA B7 V6 SEL Premium) in my TDI SEL Premium?
    The part number is 5c0-419-091-L-usz
    Do you think it will be just plug & play, same harness, no mod?
    You advise is really appreciate it.
    Regards.

    My best GUESS - yes it'll work since this was the case in older cars and you have a SEL. I don't think anyone else has done this yet, if you do, please document it!

    I ordered the steering wheel w/paddle shifters today.
    I should get it sometime this week.
    I hope this works plug and play flawless...
    I think Im gambling on this but who knows, perhaps I'm right and it works fine...HOPE SO
    I don't know yet how I'm going to install this but I will do my best to document the whole process.
    Any advise will be really appreciate it...

    Well, I got the new steering wheels w/paddle shifter. now next step is to install it.
    I don't know how to do it yet. I will call my bag provider that has a Euro shop and does a lot of work in VW & Audi to see how much cheese he will ask for $$ to have it installed..

    I will keep you posted..Also I will try to document it as well.
    Keep your finger cross..I hope this will be plug & play and no paint.. I think I'm gambling on this...

    Can somebody check in the bag-com in there is a module that has to be check or something like paddler shifter enable or something ilk this?

    Not sure on the passat but on my mk6, you went in 16 steering wheel under VCDS and picked the same option you had but "with paddles". Which would be 0xxx1xx on the golf.

    I sure would like to know if you had success with the steering wheel replacement. If so, please provide the model # of the wheel you used. THank you. THis is my main wish for my 2010 TDI Sportwagen. Also better lights.

    I have successfully installed a steering wheel with paddles on a 2012 Passat TDI. It is very easy and takes about 15 minutes. You need to make sure that you order the correct steering wheel. The part is the steering wheel from the V6 with paddles. It is 561 419 091 HE 74. This is the only model that will work with the wiring. I happen to have an extra steering wheel with paddles. I would sell it for 600.00. MSRP from VW is 795.00.

    Paddle shifter wheel installed and working. It's awesome. The paddles light up in red like the rest of the buttons on the steering wheel.

    Any chance you have pictures showing wiring underneath the airbag? (i.e. the steering wheel and wiring with airbag removed?)
    I'm trying to determine if this part number will work on a 2012 Passat TDI SE, I noticed you have an SEL.

    I didn't take any photos but I can because I need to take the wheel off to realign it better I think I didn't back on perfectly straight. The knotches at 12 o'clock would never perfectly match up. I think I am one spline too much to the right.

    That would be awesome. I'm particularly interested in the wiring and connectors.

    I'll also post the old steering wheel part number so you can check yours against that too. If its the same number you should be good.
