Hi from Australia.

Has anyone fitted another steering wheel from a Polo or another VW model to their Up?

I'm looking at getting a Polo GTI steering wheel or maybe a golf steering wheel (something without mounted buttons)

Thanks in advance.

Well in 42deg heat it can be quite hot to touch, So was looking at another wheel like the polo wheel that I have had experience with in extreme heat been able to handle it quite well.

Can you not spec the leather wheel like mine came with in Oz? its perfect, flat bottomed and doesn't heat up like a plastic one.

A polo steering wheel should fit as the Up! uses the same stalks and fitments as the Polo. Not a cheap option though as you will need a new airbag as well.

And the marked reluctance of the mechanics to have anything to do with the explosives used in the airbag and seat belt triggering devices.

Thanks for the reply


I have looked into doing the polo wheel and can have a new one fitted with airbag for $120 AUD plus the cost of the wheel which is fairly good.

They did option the leather pack here but it was like $2500 AUD for the wheel, seat inserts and fog lights!

Ouch at $2500, $120 AUD seems good value, make sure you get some pics up! Will be interesting to hear how you get on.

The leather steering wheel that comes on the high up is £236 and you use the same air bag

I am thinking of changing mine soon
