Anyone one know if the AU2 steering wheels fit the AU1's? I've got the chance to grab an AU2 XR one........

From memory they should be exactly the same. The only difference I can think of is that the AUII may have a speed alert button incorporated into the scan button.

I have done this. I have an AU3 XR8 wheel in mine. The inner part incorporatig the airbag as well as the buttons for stereo etc simply screws on to the outer rim.

You will probably need to get it installed by someone as the security torx bits are not readily available (they are 5 sided, where normal torx bits are 6 sided). It cost me a case of beer to get mine done at a used car dealer. The torx bit is worth around the $30 mark (about the cost of a case of beer).

AU wheels of any type will fit in anything back to and including EF....The NU fairlane leather wheel in Warm charcoal looks quite nice in my EF..
