What steering wheel can I install in an EL Fairmont (besides the same model) to replace my worn wheel and broken cruise buttons. My wheel has a flat top!

I'd like an XR wheel or as sporty or aftermarket but do they have the cruise buttons?

I'm only an infrequent user but I'm sure I had my bouncing betties first? They look great on the litte screen on the front of my LG mobile phone, just click for a bounce any part of the day!

With the aftermarket wheels, do I need to fit my current cruise buttons and airbag to them? I also need new cruise button tops so I guess I need to stick to used EL wheels then? Do the mont's have a nice woodgrain wheel with buttons? Whaddya guys reckon?

I've got an AU momo wheel on my ghia and the airbag and all cruise buttons hook right up like the original wheel. In regards to replacing the buttons go check out your local wreckers and pick up some second hand ones in good nick.

woodgrain wheels, you can get the elgt wheel, also used in the nl concordes, or the au momo woodgrain wheel like in my mom car, potentially a litt more achievable, as it was a fair pricey option, but Ive seen a blooke selling them on ebay for like 4-500, both are fair damn nice wheels, black leather and woodgrain inserts on the au, and just a couple sections of woodgrain.
You'll also need a black airbag, if your lucky an au on might work, but i don't know, otherwise your up for a few dollars.

John_LS1 has a ELGT Wheel that he's selling in the for sale thread, he's after $400 for it I think.
