yep, im in the process of fitting an 80 sport steering wheel, using an adaptor from an 88 golf. i will post pics soon, but the LT column is course spline and the golf in 88 used a course spline but they fitted fine spline steering wheels using this adaptor all will be revealed soon. but in effect a wheel from any VW/Audi 88 on will potentially fit.

so far i have the adaptor part no 191419514a  £7.90 +VAT
 
 
as you can see, the inner spline is for the LT column, but it house an outer spline for the later steering wheels.
 
 
mmm all nice new leather.
 
i will post the pics when i fit it later this afternoon

66   The adaptor can be purchased from a VW dealer, just give em the part number i quoted in previous post, 191419514A, they have plenty of stock at VW,
 
so here are the results,
 
 
 
 
 
 
here you can still see the clocks when sitting normal,
 
 
all i need now are some Audi seats to complement the wooden gear knob and Audi Concert radio

airbag , no chance, ive disabled it , insulated it, and i dont want to create any static, otherwise KAAAAAAA BOOOOOOOOOOOOOM
 
im going to actualy strip it down at some point, so there is no airbag inside it. i will post pics of the internals shortly "not mine after the kaboom!!!!"  with the adaptor you can fit any late sttering wheel, but as Diablodub says earlier wheels will fit with no mod.

Depends on what seat you want to fit, if you have runners as well fitting is usually straightforward bolting to the floor. If your happy with the type of seats you already have but there a bit lumpy try getting them reupholstered or change thm for a newer set
