It will bolt in but to do it properly nicely etc. it will need a fair whack of work, if you search, you will find quite a lot on it, there's electrical(airbag cruise radio switches.) and physical work to be done, to sort it properly. as it sits a bit closer to the driver than it shoul, I had my ideas how tofix this.

ef through fg have square spline

There's no way you'd get the airbag to work - thus it'd forever be a defect.

It's a completely different system to that used in EF/EL/AU.

It's got two stage firing. vs. the all or nothing system of the old ones.

And it's defective because you're not allowed to remove/disable any factory safety features.

I personally suspect you could still integrate the system to work, but the legal side is another issue, because I suspect that you'd be hard pressed to convince an engineer/cop, but more importantly an insurance company to the effective of the systems.

I've heard one bloke supposedly packed an ef bag behind a ba cover, but I have my suspicions with that.

why a ba wheel??? imo the centre looks to big and ugly!!!
unfortunatly if you own a b series you will live with it because the other featurs of the car overide the fact that the steering wheel is hideous,
but i cant see whay you want to put one in an e series. :? :? :?

Yeah well it'll bolt on just needs some work to make it look good as I said have a hunt there's plenty of info on the subject.
I must admit troyman I don't like them either, but hey atleast they're not as bad as the fg's they just look wrong.
