Steering Wheel Upgrade ?

Has anyone managed to fit a Punto Abarth Steering wheel to a Stilo and have the radio controls working ?

I'm looking at fitting one of the below wheels in place of my current multi-function Stilo one:

I have seen owners from fiat italy forum installed bravos and abarth 500s steering wheel. Not sure the buttons will work or not.

I've got the steering wheel and the stalks and squib ring from a Bravo (same part number for the stilo also) that uses this type of wheel and controls. Just need to make time to fit it and try it out.

@Davren

Anyone know anywhere that sell spline adaptors as the Abarth Punto spline is a larger diameter than the Stilo one ?

I've no idea where you would get a spline adaptor. It would need some fancy tooling to make a tube with one spline on the inside and a different spline outside. Would there even be space for such an adaptor between the steering wheel and column splines?

Looks as though the centre plate on the Bravo may be removable, but I'm fairly sure the Stilo one isn't.

I see VW do a 17mm to 26mm spline adapter so that the older vehicles can fit newer steering wheels. I'll measure the Stilo and compare it to the Punto Evo steering wheel. Had a quick glance (didn't measure it with a digital caliper yet) and the Stilo looks roughly 17mm, so hoping the Punto is 26mm. Fingers crossed.
