Howdy all!! :D

Q. Is replacing standard steering wheel in EF FUTURA, including airbag and cruize control etc..., with MOMO steering wheel illegal????

Have been advised that it COULD be illegal due to the airbag being a standard saftey feature of the car!!??

PLEASE advise!! :D :D :D

Cheers,

Matt.

P.S. - if so, MOMO steering wheel 4 sale soon!!! :cry:

If the momo wheel dosn't have an air bag and isn't padded in the center in the center it will be.

Thanks for all the comments guy's! :D

Unfortunately it isn't a factory wheel of any sort! Not sure of the model, but definately seems like it would be an illegal idea! :cry:

That's a real shame! :x

Cheers again - Much appreciated.

Matt.
