While I'm sure that's true (my '19 doesn't have the slide feature, only + (up) and - (down)...I was looking forward to the slide thing), the new wheels I'm seeing only come w/the wheel itself (no switches) and are still different part numbers. If I do the work myself, I have to know that everything from my '19 will swap into the '18 wheel and that the wheel itself will mount on the car. (Of course, I'd also need to make sure I didn't need any extra parts.Seems like I read on this forum that the 19's have a different volume control switch/slider on the left side of the steering wheel. Did a quick search but didn't find it. Perhaps this is why the 19 has a different part number? Just a guess, and based only on a questionable memory of another post.
I'm also sure the '17/'18 switches are a little different because of the volume slider (or lack thereof) and on this '18 Touring (non-heated) wheel for sale (https://www.crvownersclub.com/forum...g-model-brand-new-leather-steering-wheel.html). You can see the Main button is in the middle position where mine is on the left of the 3 buttons. Still, I would swap my controls/wiring to the new leather wrapped wheel. (Just using this as an example.)
This is getting more confusing by the minute. 1/2 tempted to drop the cash ($170) on a new OEM wheel just to make sure I get the right one.
