Hey. Im thinking of upgrading my B8 steering wheel to a B8.5 steering wheel with paddles.
My current wheel does not have paddles so the question is do i need some other wiring for those paddle shifters or is it just plug and play and then coding? And can it be coded with obdeleven app or do i need vcds?

Hello,

Very possible, as long as you have auto trans.

off the top of my head, the physical swap it just the wheels. The main part is the software aspect, you’ll need VCDS or maybe OBDELEVEN(not sure if it can)
And you’ll need to do two things:

16 steering wheel > long coder help > byte 4/5> select third option “steering wheel with multifunction and tiptronic”

02 auto trans> Byte 4 > longcoder help> select steering wheel with tiptronic

hope this helps.

ALSO worth mentioning some Audi B8 has the dual stage airbag and B8.5 was single stage ? You’ll need to do research prior to purchasing the steering wheel and airbag for ease of transition as you’ll need to match the wiring looms.
