... steering wheel, lol.

I grabbed a stock wheel from some local guy 'cause I want to make a badass wheel without losing my airbag or spending 300 bucks for an s2k wheel that doesnt even look that good in our cars. Weird though, the wheel says 4ws on it behind where the airbag would be. Does this mean it's from a euro 5th gen?

i'm gonna hack the old circle part off, put on a smaller one that is thicker, and get it wrapped in black suede. I just don't wanna do the s2k wheel like everyone's doing, and I want to keep my airbag so this seemed like a fun thing to try. I think it's going to be harder than I initially thought, but if it works then I've got a cool 1 of a kind steering wheel.

just a thought but if it says 4ws on the back of the wheel then how is anyone goin to know the difference between modding this one and a regular wheel..?

side note: i wish that the ludes over here were sold with this option. i know i loved my 3rd gen with the 4WS..

I don't give a crap that it's a 4ws wheel, I bought it thinking it was a regular one. i just happened to notice it was a 4ws wheel.

I've seen a lot of suede wheels that look like shit... rethinkin the material, maybe like a cow hide, like, not shiny leather?

1st thing's first though, need to get the new wheel bent up, or welded, depending on what gets recommended to me by my welder guy.

You don't like the s2k wheel? I thought it looked damn good in a 5th gen. I will have to look again though.
