Thanks sim, the wheel feels great. Of course I fitted mine along with bucket seats so the feel of my car was transformed, but the wheel alone is still a good mod.


Paynewright, they were all brand new. I've learned over the years that I'm never happy with used car parts, despite trying many times.

Momo boss from here. £55. - No issues at all.

https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/Momo-Steering-Wheel-Hub-L7004-for-Porsche-Mozzo-Naaf/132816172972?hash=item1eec75f7ac:g:bPQAAOSwCMFaIsbt:rk:19:pf:0


Now you may be out of luck with the wheel itself. I bought mine via eBay off a nice guy, but he's not listing anything at the moment.

His eBay name is choccybob spelt exactly like that, all lower case.

He's a marshall at various circuits so I guess he has a contact somewhere. I'd definitely message him and ask if he's getting anymore.

I paid £130 for mine but Craig had to pay £135 off him a month or two later. It was only a couple of months ago though so he may still get them.


Here's when I fitted mine. A rough overview but not extensive. I've put links to other threads though about other aspects of the fitting. It's easy.
It should bring up page 13 of my thread -

Does the brass contact ring come with the wheel? If not where can I buy one?

Thanks

The contact ring is built into the bottom face of the boss.
You then buy the contact pad from Porsche which sends power through the ring once fitted up.

I’ve just done mine with an omp wheel. Went by markys thread for directions.
All the same, hub, horn contact etc.
Bought my wheel 2nd hand on eBay, think £28 delivered. Scrubbed up almost perfect. Very happy with it.
Got the horn push from bellavalonte for £35.
All in all it was less than £140.
Absolute bargain

Looking at Model 07’s at some retailers and they specify ‘Motorsport Only’! Is that just to mitigate against personal injury as you are removing the airbag?

Also, do people declare to their insurers?

The wheel looks great Thumb

I’m not sure about the motorsport bit! But I did tell my insurance co when I changed mine and they just noted the change. No comments or fee. I’m with classic line.

Just another thought - what do people do come MOT time? Does removal of a vehicle safety system deem it an instant fail?

Thanks - how did you make the wiring quick changeover as most write ups suggest ‘harvesting’ the horn wire from the clock spring to get the loom plug? Airbag plug looks like you can just shove the resistor in the female connector on the car loom.

Hello Ian

I put the clock spring back on to get horn working and left the air bag resisterd still , so for Mot purpose horn works and airbag lights function as it should
