Has anyone done an aftermarket wheel and retained their steering wheel buttons? I have seen kits for some JDM cars that facilitate this but nothing for the MK7 so far. I'd love a smaller wheel in my car but I can't go without the buttons haha

Yes; you transfer your buttons, trim, and airbag over to the new wheel. It takes a bit of time and you have to be slow and careful so as not to break or snap anything, but it all moves over.

ShopDAP has a YouTube video that is step by step. The hardest part is removing the stock trim from the original wheel. Here is a picture of mine after install.

That is a cool steering wheel though.😻

I've always swapped out the factory steering wheel on my pre airbag VWs. I even removed the airbags on my Mk3. Replaced the passenger side airbag with a European glove box and the driver side with a Momo.
