You can do the change yes. Its pretty easy as long as you can get the airbag out (I had problems, hence destroying the wheel lol)
You may need the wiring (clock spring?) to make the steering wheel buttons work. I dont know if the connection is already there or not on a Active model.
I am sure somebody in the past has done it though. Have you used the search function?

Unless you have the clockspring with the cable for the controls they wont work.

I changed my clock spring but am yet to find a wheel with controls, think you have to proxialign it.

Where'd you find this wheel

Yes it possible.
Go to the other thread called 'removing steering wheel' I posted a video. Its is the Fiat 500 but it should give you an idea of the job.
