    Well since my car is down for a while, I don't think it will be back until next season. So along with the motor swap it's getting a few more mods to make it more modern. Customized suede/tweed Recaro Sports are going in for front seats, and either some paint/CF/flocking is going to be done to the interior to change it up a bit. I also want to change my steering wheel. the OEM wheel in my car looks like it's for a bus and it looks really dated, not to mention it's starting to show its 20yr old age.
    So I'm on the hunt for an aftermarket steering wheel. Ford had the FRPP wheel (similar to those in the 2003 10th anniversary Cobras) but they have been discontinued and now run $500.

    Glimpse of the stock wheel/dash in this picture (not my car)




    My only requirements are that the colors match (black and silver), it's leather/suede or some combination of the two, and that it looks semi-OEM. That is the biggest factor for me. I really don't want a leather covered wheel with a simple bare metal center section, although that seems to be what 99% of wheels are.

    So far I've been looking at Nardi/Personals and MOMOs.

    Personal Pole Position (350mm black leather)



    MOMO Millenium Sport (in grey not red)



    And the front runner is the MOMO Millenium EVO (funny that Mat just posted this one)




    The Momo Evo is the most OEM looking so right now that's kind of where I'm leaning.




    Thoughts and suggestions?

    I have a few Ichibahn Rev style steering wheels avail. Bnib. If you want to go that direction...

    does it have an airbag? if you ditch the airbag it will never pass inspection in the state of massachusetts again.

    No airbag. Wouldn't do a swap if I had one.

    I think the MOMO Millenium EVO would go best with your interior

    The MOMO Millenium Sport looks more "Modern" if you know what i mean

    That center piece is removable so I could get the center section painted body color or something like gunmetal.

    Rich thanks but not a fan of the Ichiban.

    really? dang yo that stock wheel is awful (not being an @sshole). I thought it was like that because of some old airbag BS. A steering wheel is going to do huge things for the inside of this car. The Hartge one I put in my M5 was a huge imporvement. This is going to be like night and day.

    I know it's awful, I don't like anything about it except the actual grip on the wheel. It's firm but soft at the same time.
    I'm going to lose my cruise control but I've never actually used it because it never worked. Could be only a fuse or something but I never bothered to check.

    Was actually a joke. I'm expecting to see them in a civic soon.

    I like the Momo fighter or the sparco d-shape. Thats just me. I find the size and the grips matter the most to me, form follows function. I like smaller diameter wheels, so it limits my personal choices.

    handbrake ala:

    Nardi's are so played, and imo, not that nice. keep the flimsy, thin woodgrain on the old ass caddy.

    Looks like I can get the EVO for about $300 and the hub for an SN95 Mustang for another $100. I'll probably pull the trigger on this once the motor stuff is done, maybe I'll get lucky and the wheel price will drop too.
