Should also mention, from previous wiring issues with Opel EFIs over the years.. colors are wierd

etc... etc.. so the color thing maybe Opel standard vs GM NA standard so techs don't get confused.

The heated steering wheel button looks like it is in a different place on the Buick wheel than the Opel. Buick is on the bottom of the left rocker wheel control, Opel looks to be in the center button? (Buick is blank center button). FWIW that is a photo of a 2019 TourX Essence with adaptive cruise. I don't have a horse in the race, I'm never going to make the this conversion - I put the Buick GS wheel on mine.. If it's truly plug and play to the Opel one then great. I hope it works out for you.

Thanks for the picture.. that clears up a little too..

I found 3 wiring harnesss a 2017, 2018, and a 2019 in Poland to get pictures of.. so will chase some pinouts to see.

I think the differences as you point out would be in the heated wheel.

Also I had mistakenly thought our heated wheels were in the center. What it looks like is where we have heated wheel, they used that for garage opener.. and then the center for heated wheel. That would change things or at minimum add wires.

Good thing is I know the resistor block is for heated wheel and can work backwards. Will post a whole new thread on this.

I would be interested to get a set: Opel's OPC steering wheel and airbag if the price is right and if it will be truly plugged and play swap.

how much is your asking price?
Depends, the extra one I have, has a few little white dots on it from the pictures so it possibly deployed.. But it is a heated wheel.

That would be $500 with Air Bag not including shipping FROM Virginia ( BUT Shipping and customs to the states included )

That said, I can also get you a better wheel for $650 total as I would have to buy that wheel, but it doesnt have heat.

Want heat.. I can get this one for $750

If you want a flat bottom one with the Paddles.. that one I would have to be $950

These are pictures of what I can get not examples.

They are from the guy I have been getting my parts from.

The airbag guy has 6 air bags in his stock.. and those are brand new.

Actually this is true for anyone wanting to buy between now and early October. Once October comes around my crate will be in its way and then its another year unless I fill up my partners storage with enough to ship again.

I shot you a PM asking for the price of an airbag for my opc wheel.

To the previous post someone mentioned the button layout is different for the heat, thats correct. Here is my OPC wheel non paddles.

I would like to have an OPC steering wheel with heating but without paddles. But I would like to be assured that this will be a plain plug-and-play swap.

My Tourx has 14k miles, I am looking for a steering wheel with a perfect leather surface without any blemishes or scratches. The one above is in not top condtion.
Only one I found with no paddles.. the one I found with paddles is really nice though at least from the pictures.
