    I have a FIAT Linea MJD Emotion. I would like to add Steering Mounted Audio, Air Bags and Blue&Me to my Linea Emotion to make it an Emotion Pack. What are the possibilities of adding these features? What would its cost be?

    Alloy Wheels can be installed, I don't think its a problem. But is it possible to install fully foldable rear seats, rear screen in Linea Emotion.

    Airbags, blue&me? no. Don't think its even practical to do. It would be more practical to buy an emotion pack instead.

    Btw.. If you mean blue n me type features.. Yes, you can install an even better stuff with a car PC with bluetooth connectivity for your phone features. Steering mount control can be added too.... But definitely not blue&me per se

    Steering Mounted Audio

    As far as I am aware, the steering wheel with audio controls includes the Air Bag. So wouldn't it be possible to install Air Bags as well for safety.
    Further How much would a Carputer and New Steering Wheel Cost?

    Its not possible to install Airbag in aftermarket. Its not that simple as having airbag in steering wheels, it has Airbag controller(ECU) and sensors etc, it also have to be integrated with car ECU and MID controls. It will not be possible and very costly to do it, for example AirBAG Ecu costs Rs12,000 approx itself and other parts are also very costly. Thats the reason most of the cars which has Airbag as option are usually costly by 35k to 50k then without it.

    Also steering wheel for Emotion Pk includes space for airbag, airbag costs another 15K approx as far as i know and thats without sensors, Airbag ECU etc.

    Please go through below link, then you will understand the complexity of airbag setup, it not simply a "airbag in the steering wheel".
