The steering wheel is simple. If the sports wheel you obtained has heat, then you will still have heat. If you acquired a non-heated wheel, you will have an unused connector and no heat. I suggest you disconnect your battery before swapping the wheel or you will get and air bag error code that only the dealer can reset. Even doing this, you may still get a code.
Thanks for the response. I've been to Real OEM website and can see that a few bits are different, but not too much and I can acquire the items that are different.
