Steering wheel fit
I have a 2006 sl55 with the original 4 spoke steering wheel. I would like to update the car with a new 3 spoke wheel like you would find in a 2010 or 2011 model. I know that the air bag would need to be replaced, but so far I can't find anyone who knows if it can even be done, including the dealership. The production year on my car was 12-2005 and is a 2006 car.
I have seen some steering wheels that say they will fit a car from 09-2006 and after, which is confusing because I didn't think there was any difference in the steering wheels from 06 to 07.
What I am looking for is someone who has actually done it and can tell me first hand if it can be done and if so what is needed to do it. There are so many opinions that I am just confused.
Your help is appreciated.
