    Looks lovely!

    You might regret it in a crash though. (Sorry for being a bit negative, but I would never ditch my air bag.) Cant deny that it really does look good though.

    So you wouldnt drive an old car without an airbag then?

    Personally having seen plenty go off id take a chance with the seat belt pre tesnioners and maybe breaking my nose on the steering wheel rather than have my face scortched off by an exploding bag and then being suffocated by powder..lol.

    in addition to that, it's necessary to specify that the center section of the steering wheel, aka the hornet button .... is kinda soft !!!!

    It's a very nice wheel. Only problem I can see it's that you fitted it to the wrong side

    Seriously though it matches the interior very well, like BAD I don't know if I'd be happy losing the airbag just for safety sake but it's down to personal choice really.

    I think that's a bit different to taking an airbag out of a car that had been fitted with one! As an analogy: If neccesary I would drive an old car with crappy drum brakes, but I certainly wouldnt change all-round discs on a newer car to drums!

    Remeber people used to belive that seatbelts were dangerous, and would rather "be thrown clear". And race drivers used to think they would get "hanged" by the Hans-Device. I know it may sound naiive, but I dont think airbags would be fitted if they weren't going to do you any good.

    Im not going to argue about it anymore though because it's the owner/drivers choice and in the worst case scenario it still only affects them.
