The steering wheel is only held on by 1 nut .

IF you willing to spend a bit of money u can get a boss for 40 quid, then a second hand momo,sparco,omp steering for another 40.

I recently got a second hand momo for 25 posted

Re: changing steering cinq sporting

the standard size of the steering wheels is 350mm. So any cover with that size will fit.

The sei wheel fit, assuming the sei airbag is mechanical and there is no ecu controling it.

Really is your steering wheel actually that bad? and the sei air bag wheel is not good looking at all!!

Invest a bit of money and u won't be disappointed

Re: changing steering cinq sporting

you will find the rugby ball wheel was on the cinq first before the sei, look for really later models of cinqs breaking if you want that wheel as well as sei. You will also find that some of them were non airbag also

Re: changing steering cinq sporting

Just out of interest, can someone please clarify if the sei airbag was of the mechanical variety (ie, self contained with inertia switch trigger in the airbag unit) or ECU triggered? The Cinq unit (Where fitted) was a mechanical, which leads me to think the sei would be too, but could someone confirm please?

14" is right for the standard sporting wheel

Re: changing steering cinq sporting

lol, i took it off recently and left it in my room :P

Unlike the norm, smaller the steering wheel to some extent is better

I say 13" is perfect! or 330mm
