Steering Wheel Upgrade?

10 posts in this topic

I'm looking to purchase a Sparco 300 steering wheel for my 2008 Exige. My car has an airbag steering wheel & I wonder if there are any issues with such an upgrade?

 

Alternatively, I would consider getting my existing wheel trimmed in Alcantara - anyone done this, or know of somewhere around Nottm where I could get it done?

 

As ever, cheers guys.

Momo are very well designed and beautifully built.  It was always the first thing I used to buy for each new car until the airbags came along sad.png.  Yes, ok, Momo do make the current spindly s/w for the Elise but it must be to a Lotus design, so not quite up to Momo's own standards!!

 

 

 

 

 

And, hey presto - this is my 500th post clap.gif .

It will save you a chunk of weight I imagine. I also preferred the very slightly larger wheel on Alex B's car - suede, with a longer boss so the wheel is a little closer was perfect for me.

Your welcome to try mine out at Donny next week.

As Dean said it's slightly larger than standard and an awful lot closer.

I had a momo 300mm from Elise parts on mine, a lotus badge for the horn button and it looked bob on... The perfect size as well I thought....

That Momo does look good.

 

I need to get it sorted soon. It'll be my last upgrade & it's one I'm really looking forward to.

I bought an Oreca which is fantastic and they have a few choices of size and it only cost £99 delivered!
