I am looking to add a leather wrapped wheel to my 2011. Has anyone swapped out a used 2008 - 2009 G8 steering wheel in their Caprice. I want to know if my airbag would fit? Are the controls the same? Anyone swapped a different oem wheel?

Our wonderful search function fails big time on this topic but here is a thread with a lot of pics and part numbers you will need.

11-13 Steering Wheel Options

And the short answer s any upgrade to a leather wheel will require:
New Back Cover
New Switch Bezels*
New Spoke Covers*

* On these two items you have color choises from the G8 or AU, choices are 2 diffrent kinds of silver or a black, maybe even some carbon fiber ones floating around.

And Bill linked to it in the first page of that Linked thread but here is a good guide to installing them:
Car Modder Site in AU

I can’t remember what I got from Crazy Paul, but it was a bolt-in swap. Can’t find the correspondence between us for that order.

ebay.au is full of the commodore used wheels some of which are very reasonable and not that bad shipped here. I bought 2 several years ago.

I picked up a 2009 G8 Leather wheel for $99.00 off eBay in great condition. I will post the results when I do the swap.
