    Over the Hill's new Techart steering wheel!

    Fresh off the presses, this is the type 1, sport steering wheel in all leather.

    Nice and thick


    Close up shot of stitching


    Airbag pod


    Ties in quite nicely with the galvano silver trim


    Thick sides


    Mine is the same except that I have CF on top

    Re: Over the Hill's new Techart steering wheel!

    Absolutely beautiful... thats why I got one too

    I had them switch the buttons out from my multifunction wheel and I now think I have the perfect combo...

    Over the Hill, your going to love it!

    Re: Over the Hill's new Techart steering wheel!

    That is awesome looking. It was too late for me to order thicker multifuntion wheel. How much is the all black leather wheel and where did you get it! Can the dealer easily switch the multifunction buttons to the new wheel?

    Re: Over the Hill's new Techart steering wheel!

    Great looking. Please show once in the car.

    Thanks in advance

    My dealer parts dept. said that the airbag module was different between the MF and the thicker MF......so in order for me to trade out the steering wheel, I had to also get a $900 airbag as well. This was the factory MF, so maybe the Techart is different?

    Re: Over the Hill's new Techart steering wheel!

    I'm not sure if the thicker MF is a different bag or not, the thicker option was not available when I ordered the MF wheel

    The Techart Type 2 wheel with leather (logo deleted) is $1659 plus $30 shipping. There is a refundable $600 core charge. My dealer (Benchmark Motoring in Bellevue, WA) is charging 1.5 hours labor for installation. For a dealer/installer near you contact http://www.cecwheels.com/

    They could answer your other questions as well.

    BTW if Porsche is interested in saving weight the steering wheel casting would be a good place to start. This sucker weighs a ton!

    I had my MF changed for the Techart thicker wheel, my dealer changed the buttons and fitted my airbag from my old wheel with no problems. And what a difference!! I cannot say enough good things about the discision to put the Techart on - Thanks to Atomic 80!!

    Re: Over the Hill's new Techart steering wheel!

    No problem, glad you liked it!

    I still love mine!

    Re: Over the Hill's new Techart steering wheel!

    and here's why I'm thanking you!!

    Re: Over the Hill's new Techart steering wheel!
