Hello, curious as to if I rip off a basic stock wheel with no volume or cruise control built into it off a '06 TDI and throw on an '05 TDI steering wheel that has the cruise control and volume control. Will there be an auxiliary port for connections behind the wheel? Thank you

I wouldnt think so since your car never came with the controls or anything like that. You would have to swap in the wheel, steering wheel module and possibly wire up as well with coding.

The MFSW (volume and cruise buttons) can be swapped, but I think you'd lose the horn as the wiring is completely different.
Read the MFSW retrofit threads - you'd be going the other direction, but my assumption would be that the same thing applies.
