OK o wise ones, has anyone any experience of fitting an aftermarket steering wheel? Any problems to be aware of, difficulty obtaining adaptor boss, horn button, beating of the old one etc. My original is as shiny as a very shiny thing and is a nightmare now. Any advertisers on here sell steering wheels
Thanks in anticipation

Buster, I have a Nismo steering wheel. Had it fitted, but don't think it was too much hassle. The wheel is fantastic (very small, particularly in comparison to the enormous standard wheel), steering responses feel much better, and its much more tactile than the standard wheel. The downside is that there is no airbag.

I'd still be interested to find out if someone like snap-off do a removable wheel (like on the Lotus Elise) as this increases security of the car no end! and the wheels are usually made by Momo. Anyone know the answer?

HI fellas,

i dont know about fitting the boss kits and what not, but as far as the snap of thing goes, it is just an attachment to the boss kit i believe. you whack it on the front and fit an adaptor to the old steering wheel and away you go, with the steering wheel aswell i suppose

Air bag

Again, sorry Buster. My R33 came with a Nissan Momo steering wheel fitted & certificated in japan. The only problem was with the air bag sensor & light which had been a consistent problem for the entire life of the vehicle until Abbey reset it correctly for me.

Reece, the snap-on wheels are not as simple as you state. The wheel itself is modified so that it fits the boss (couple of clip type things are required on the back of the wheel to allow it to lock onto the boss), therefore a whole kit would need to be bought. its not as simple as buying a snap-on boss kit for the wheel already on the car.
