Yes some manufacturers use non oem cores.

Any issues getting these steering wheels (with OEM cores) installed into the vehicle? I'm too scared to do it myself, so have been calling around, and some service depts. quote over $200 and others around $70 to do the switch-out. Some say they need to do re-coding, others not. In your experience, does the switch-out require coding, or is it plug & play?

I actually used Royal Steering Wheels btw, will post a pic once installed.

How can it require coding. Think about it.. It's an identical part (from the cars POV).

In my head it's not more than an hours work: take off airbag, take off old wheel, move over trim and controls, install new wheel, install airbag. Test that it's straight.

Only thing im not sure of is if you can reuse the bolt or if you have to buy a new one.

I'm going with royal, i find bak too expensive and was going to go with TAW leather one, but royal is >$300 cheaper so that's the deciding factor for me.

The new steering wheel actually comes with the trim and controls, so it’s not like they even have to move that over, but for piece of mind I may just ask that they move over my current controls to the new wheel. In my mind it makes complete sense that there would be no need for coding, but the fine folks at OpenRoad VW in Manhattan and Huntington VW insist that coding is required, and quoted me $350 and $210 respectively. Hence the question. I’m going to head out to Three Counties VW in NJ instead who quoted me $60 max.

I actually did purchase a new bolt based on some research - just in case.

Coding is not required. Just a straight transfer. If your controls are different than the ones you receive that maybe the only issue. Example DAP and non dap.

BAK is showing nearly $2k as the "new" price and $949 as the "old" price. What gives?
