dont qoute me on this but i swear someone was telling me it was illegal to take the airbag out. pretty sure they said if the car came with a bag, it had to have a wheel that included one.

Not worth losing the cruise control
Definately not worth losing the air bag + roadworthy + insurance.

As already suggested find yourself a nice EF-AU leather XR, momo, or GT wheel

'racing' wheels looks tupid on cars that have airbags anyway, the column is too thick, it just looks retard in my opinion.

What do the momo ones look like, are they leather?
