Re: Installed a new steering wheel today!

I'm not really feeling the STI interior in the 9-2x.  If the STI wheel was sans red stitching and had a Saab logo cap I'd dig it.

Re: Installed a new steering wheel today!

The only one I can find is the carbon version (though I like the blue stitching).

Please tell the the non-carbon version is more reasonably priced?  unamused

Nevermind. Still pricey: http://forums.nasioc.com/forums/showthr … ring+wheel And it would need to be a hybrid of two wheels to have audio/cruise control I think...

Re: Installed a new steering wheel today!

That is badass.  What did you do about the airbag?  Is it plug & play, or did you swap the 9-2x airbag into the wheel?  I know the '04 WRX was a single stage airbag, and the new ones are dual stage.  Not sure about the '06.

Yes, with the use of the PAC SWI-PS and my Pioneer radio. It was not an easy feet. The plugs for the cruise controls are different and luckily there was an extra plug at the back of my steering column that allowed me to get the radio control wires through. Also, a lot of cross referencing ALL DATA for wiring colors.

Yes they have a round version, but I don't know much about it. The stuff was pricey. biggrin I was going to do a STI cluster, but I really don't want to mess with the mileage on the car. Not to mention my slew of Defi gauges all light up green.

The center pod is made by ATI and the cluster pod is made by Autometer. The gauges are Defi, BF series gauges (boost, EGT, Oil press., Oil Temp, Fuel press.)

My 06 had the dual stage airbag in it, so it was plug and play!  banana

Looks fantastic, well done.   I don't know if I would be able to focus on the road, I would be busy looking at all the goodies on the interior
