I had a generic Ebay one on before that, worked, but it felt like a 40 dollar wheel and I hated that.

I'm not sure on the dimentions, but its just a tad bit smaller than the NB nardi. Like half an inch smaller in diameter. It looks like its made for this car and should have been on there all along. And I love that.
It's a MOMO not nardi, even says so on your horn push :P

They're also fitted to most JDM series2 MK1's, pretty much ever S-special based limited edition had them.

They're 370mm iirc, and have an offset centre to improve legroom.

I love that wheel but I need an airbag. Sigh.

Is there any any any way or mod or duct tape that can make it so I can run that wheel and an airbag at the same time ........ Problem is it would look terrible, but at least my face would come out looking better in the end......

Wrap your wheel in SFI foam?

Or wrap your face in SFI foam?

Dont make fun of Rip Van Winkle he rides a motocross bike very very well, better than I.

As for that 1st video, I dont know what to say, though I would suggest some Weight Gain 2000 and a little sun exposure........

Did you really just suggest taping an airbag to a steering wheel?


Why do you think it's so important to have the airbag? Do you think you'll get a ticket the instant you drive the car down the street without it? Just cut the loop on the seatbelt. I've been in a Miata and wearing the stock seatbelt and crashed the car pretty hard...I came nowhere close to hitting the steering wheel. You'll be fine....just don't sit 6" away from the steering wheel.

You guys know how women are the demographic that is most frequently injured by airbags? I think it is because many of them sit this far away from the wheel:

That's me!

Out of severe laziness and/or forgetfulness.

That's what I might end up doing, upgrading to a newer model since my current one is showing signs of deteriorating... soon enough cracks will develop.

I've always rocked OEM steering wheels, so as I am an "aftermarket wheel noob" can you tell us what else is needed to swap to this wheel?

Thanks in advance
