159 steering wheel upgrade
« on: October 01, 2018, 08:57:12 PM »
Hey,

I see a lot of steering wheel upgrades (D shape steering wheels) on the UK forums and sale pages.
Has anyone in Australia used these websites or upgrades their steering wheel in their 159?
If so, where did you purchase the steering wheel from?

Cheers,
Matty

If you have the standard 159 (non-Ti), just upgrade to a Ti steering wheel. It has very nice stitching and much nicer in-hand feel. I am still looking for one to put in my 159. If you really wanna go crazy, maybe get the wheel re-upholstered in suede or something similar.

Wouldn't the D shape wheels be 4C Steering wheels?

My 159 already has the TI steering wheel but itís pretty worn.
Iím looking to upgrade to something similar to this;

I havenít found an Australian provider and am a little hesitant ordering this type of thing from an overseas company.
