Good luck finding one. One was just for sale on ebay. I won it for about $450.
If you can find one, you can get it dyed ti match your airbag. A couple of members on here have had theirs coloured. I think that neo_nick was one of them IIRC

Cheers
Chris

As said aobve, get EL GT wheel, dye airbag black or dye the wheel grips to cappa to suit your current airbag.

Finding a stock one in cappa is gonna a big effort, proberly wouldnt find one anyway..

Damn thats a nice steering wheel..... :D

There is no such thing as a FBT steering wheel cause they were all dyed, even the factory ones for the FBT so if you want one you are going to have to buy the black one and get it dyed.

I got mine done at leather creations in Richmond (victoria) and was around the $100 mark....definately worth the effort though

They are very hard to get you hands on. I had been looking for ~5 months. The second that I seen one on Ebay, I knew that I would have to win the auction, no matter the cost.
You *may* be able to get one from fraud, but expect to pay big $$$ for it.
There is one other place that I can think of. I have just called them (5 mins before they close :lol:), and they said that they would need to check thier warehouse and they will call me back sometime tomorrow. I will post more details when I get the call back.
Cheers
Chris
