first of all, thanks for OP and everyone contributed here. You guys are awesome!Can anyone confirm anything about the heated part of the steering wheel? I too have a Lux with no heated steering wheel looking to upgrade to paddle/heated wheel, and am wondering if its possible to enable it or not.
Now, I can confirm you that it is not plug n play.
Mine is Lux too, I purchased a heated one thinking even if my car does not support it, it will have a higher resale value. I installed it today, and unfortunately there isn't a socket for the heater cable on the steering column.
Retrofitting might need some work like it used to be on the T1 and T2. We might need a different control module and some steering and information center tweaks and some calibration for ABS in VCDS, I'd also check swivel headlight after change of that control module... seems like too much work. I will just keep using my gloves for now.
Also for people who are looking for a brown steering wheel, you may be disappointed to hear this. Since paddle shifter only comes with R Line, and R Line only comes with black interior. It is very likely that there simply isn't a brown&shifter combination. (Pure speculation, not confirm by VW or knowledgeable people) I'm using a black steering wheel with brown airbag. I will post some pictures in the next few days, it doesn't look too bad IMO.
FYI, for cars without heated socket, the new code I used is "000035".
