Just looking at eBay for a few needed items and I saw a nice looking Momo wheel.
I have a black leather Momo interior (off a first series?) and thought a leather wheel with the Alfa badge would get me down with the kids.
Anybody here these days changed their steering wheel? What one? Happy with it?
Oh yes, I also picked up a set of the shiny stainless steel sill trims too (£less than advertised) so Iím gently personalising the car.

Thatís a nice looking steering wheel. I have seen the Alfa centre horn push on eBay if you donít have one yet.
I realised after my post that the original has an airbag. Iím hoping some research will come up with the cure to stop the warning light being on all the time. Hopefully just a resistor.

You need a 3.3 Ohm 5 watt resistor, and you may need the ECU reset, depending on your version (I did; and I'm a CF2)

If you disconnect the battery for 15 mins before installing and then reconnect after you've connected all the bits, you may not need a reset. It's certainly how it's worked on other cars where I've put in a resistor to fool the ECU.
