I bought a period Nardi wheel about a year ago but never got around to fitting it. Maybe a project for this summer.

Steering wheels are an important item - best to get it right for what suits you. I liked the original wheel and would not use a non-airbag wheel, so got my original wheel re-trimmed by Royal, thickened and the thumb rests added. Loved it so much I was forced to buy a new gear gaiter/knob to match (not pictured). Biggest two touch points - go for whatever you like.

Thread chnges name to "Gear nob change option? "

Where did you get the gaiter/gear nob? curently running a worn boggo classic grey one. in fact anyone does anyone slese have any ideas of a direct fit aftermarket, the RS one looks to plastic (because it is) and I dont want to go too crest heavy as the 3 spoke already has one.

Think this looks great and 100% that it's totally subjective based on how it looks to you and how it feels Thumb
