Hi Guys, first post so please be gentle :)

My wife has just got a 2016 Sportage 3 and its a great bit of kit. She wants the GT Line flat bottom steering wheel; is it possible to swap with our existing wheel and use the same airbag? I have seen a few GT Line wheels on ebay that have the same button layout as ours. I have searched the forum and google anf can't find anything definitive and would really appreciate your input
many thanks

Not done it on the Kia but done steering wheel swaps on plenty of other brands and usually it's just a straightforward straight swap.
Just make sure the wheel comes from a same model year, as sometimes there can be CANBUS changes between years and then the switches might not work properly.

Thank for your help. Yeah i have done plenty of swaps on Audi and as you say it's pretty straightforward. We have never had a Kia before so I was just checking there is no known problems with swapping.

Nice, I'd definitely go for that if we weren't so close to the car going back (lease).

You have replied to a post that's over a year old. The OP hasn't been seen on this forum in almost 1 year.
