If you knew me roth, you'd know. There is no such thing as too fat as far as I'm concerned. (Tyrone should get a laugh outa that one.)

Anyway: on with a couple pics:

The old airbag comes out with two torx driven 23mm:

Here, there is no wheel after removing the 16mm nut. You an even see the colum alignment mark:

Ready for the sausage wheel (as shipped):

VERY important to align these two marks. You can also see the airbag plugs:

The new airbag plugged in:

The view from the back seat- Note 16:9 NAV screen, too:

And finally, the view which welcomes me everytime I open the door: Eurodash, 16:9 and big ole meaty wheel. I'm pretty pleased with the results.
