I appears to be feasible unlike many other proposed retrofit upgrades I've seen.

Check out this thread - at least it will provided some perspective on what you're getting yourself in to. If you do some more extensive Google searches, you may find that, if it's feasible, a few more owners may have done it. My guess is that since this is a popular option, that the wiring harness/CAN-BUS in and around the dash are identical in all A8s - only difference being the steering wheel itself and a fuse or two.

Good luck and, for the sake of curiosity, keep us posted on your progress!
