The wood rim steering wheel in the W8 is one of those High dollar options I don't think that most buyer will order one with that said their won't be any in the salvage yards.

Its an uncommon option

The W8 in an uncommon passat

those two reason alone with make finding the W8 wood rim wheel and uncommon experience

You guys see how I am stressing the word uncommon.

These are picture of a 1998 2.8 v6 tiptronic that has alot of expensive mods to it. It has the wood rim steering but I can't read german

The wooden 3 point steering wheel is in European inventory for long long time. In Europe it was a stand alone option on Passat. The cost is around 400 Euros but you have to get it from Europe. I was contemplating getting one in 97 when I was in Europe, but the cost dissuaded me from it since you also have to buy the three point steering wheel airbag (another $300)
