Sports Steering Wheel

Recommended Posts

I want to fix a Sports (atleast sporty looking) steering wheel to my Nissan March K11. It's a yr 2000 model with an Air Bag. Can someone recomend a place to remove the airbag without damaging it.

Checked motorcade for a Steering wheel and it comes in the range of 4500 to 10,000. Unfortunately they are a bit reluctant to mess with the air bag.

Any other places that deals with stuff like that ?

Hey Bro,

No offense but why would you want to take off something as important as an Air Bag and replace it with a wheel that will only serve as a cosmetic enhancement??

An Air Bag could could save your life! :lol:

Yeah I totaly agree with Hefraz, why do you want to take out something so important and fix this steering? Besides, this will make your car value go down too

Wtf?

Totally agree on the comment on safety, but the thing is you really get bored with a machine like a 1000cc Automatic march and feel like making it a bit different from the rest. have done quite a few mods (cosmetic & technical) and this sports wheel just crossed my mind.

Anyways the 5 yr old airbag has no guaranttes of working now :D

The Airbag will definitely work man, but whether you can live without it really depends on how you drive,

what I mean is Airbags are especially effective in high speed full frontal collitions, but if you don't speed that much (and indeed its virtually impossible to properly speed inside colombo thesedays due to all the traffic) you probably can afford to live without it,

Most sports steering wheels don't really bring much to the car except the ability to rapidly steer thanks to the smaller circumference, and a low quality one might actually put you in danger if it fails ha ha.

Its a matter of personal taste man, the airbag isnt that complicated to remove and even reinstall should you decide to go back to stock someday.

Werent u on tat aussie march site?

Im nuaim...

And speaking from experience the sports wheels are much much better than the original humangous plasticky steering wheel!

Yours is it with the double airbag, right?

If you need a change, just get a fancy steering wheel cover
