1999 156 2.4 JTD

New owner, a few general Qs

I've just bought a 1999 156 2.4JTD for the Wife (at least it's supposed to be, I'm having a hard time giving it back).
A few questions:

-Where's the best place to get touch-up paint? It's a light metallic green colour.

-Anyone know where to get a replacement microswitch for the key fob? I've heard cpc/farnell are the best place, and they are up the road from where I work.

-Is it possible to replace the steering wheel? I have the wooden one, it (old man) doesn't really suit the way the car drives (not old man).

-What year 156 seats will fit? The driver's seat (green velour) has a fair bit of wear, I'd like to know my options for replacement.

-Driver's side sill has cracked. I hear this is fairly common. Any decent aftermarket replacements?

Re: New owner, a few general Qs is great for touch up paint

The seats from the facelift models (mid 2002 on) have airbags in the side. Don't know if you can connect them up in an earlier model, sure somebody will know.

And the wooden steering wheels are cool, don't change it!
