    Can I expect to find a mint condition s15 steering wheel?

    Mine looks like crap, so I need to replace it. Worth holding out for a mint one to appear somewhere or should I just go looking for a tasteful aftermarket steering wheel?

    Also, any ideas on where to look?

    Try asking DriftBitz, or Driftworks do a nice selection of Nardi s/w.

    Could buy one new. Not direct from Nissan clearly, but Amayama show them (shipped direct from Japland) for 175 + delivery and taxes. You'll have to email them to confirm availability and final costs first.

    Wow Zeppelin, nice! Not that expensive when you consider how much some of the 2nd hand s15 wheels sell for.

    Not sure on the refurb, means I have to take it off which is a problem and then I wonder how good a refurb would actually be? Know anywhere worth recommending?

    Regarding the aftermarket options, I suppose I'd want something that looks a bit OEM if possible.

    Thanks guys.

    I think looking at the catalogue that might not come with the centre bit, but if that bit of yours is in good nick then you could reuse that. Otherwise there is a part number for it on that same page.

    It's a nifty site, there are some bits I wish to order from them assuming they can get them. For instance a 180SX exhaust manifold is 600 over here but they have them advertised at a little over 100. Assuming that is a genuine price and they can get hold of one, it's a bleedin' bargain!

    I sold one today for 50 with airbag, and a mate has one I'm sure he will part with for 70 or less.

    Yeah? In decent condition? To be honest mate, if only you were a bit quicker sticking your car up for sale and I probably would have had that ah well, I have my own S15 adventure now. If the wheel's in good nick, I'd love to take it off him.

    Ben - funny, I was looking at those this morning but saw mixed reviews. I guess it's going without a wheel that is the reason for hesitating on that one. Thanks for the link mate

    I'm sure you could easily borrow an S14 wheel, I'd lend you mine.

    I have a spare s15 wheel without the centre section, I replaced it for a mildly better stock one. They are a nice wheel, really are crap for wear and tear though, majority of s15 in car shots I'v seen show wheels that look like they have done a million miles

    30 plus delivery if you want it for a retrim.

    Keep an eye on fleaBay, that's where I got mine. Just depends on how quickly you need one. It's been a while, but when I was looking grotty ones seemed to go from peanuts to about 30, good ones for 60->80 & minters 100 to 150. Some were worried about posting with the airbag, some don't care!

    Stuff posted from Japan, etc. rarely came with the bag.

    I'll quickly see how a quote looks from Royal, and maybe I'll take you up on the 30 wheel immy if you don't mind. Unless Mitch's buddy's wheel is silly bargain minty lusciousness.

    I'd forgotten what it was like to be on SXOC.

    Yeah, sounds good although I've impulse purchased a nardi wheel and boss so I think I'm going to fit that, get a refurb, and then decide which I prefer. Would love to see what yours looks like

    Just got a response from Royal with a bunch of pics. 110 for leather, or 130 with alcantara. Looks incredible if it turns up as the demo pics have. Almost certainly doing this now - would deffo like to see what a retrimmed S15 wheel looks like in the car though, get those pics up!
