People get upset cause it literally takes less than 10 seconds to look up info on google. If you don't know how to use it just let us know ahead of time and we won't get upset if you don't search around at least a bit

It's not that hard but depends on your car! My BB1 has cruize control and 4ws so I needed a special boss kit (at a special price of $100, double the steering wheels price.lol) that allows cruize control and 4ws to work. As for a steering wheel, dont go too small a diameter but definitely go smaller than stock! Steering wheel is definitely worth doing (if you dont have airbags), but make sure it has a decent metal (steel/aluminum) frame. Can’t describe the change in how the car handles, the factory truck of steering wheel, apart from weighting like 5kg, makes the car feel like a tank. A smaller one makes steering much more responsive!

As for the install, only one bolt holding the steering wheel down, think off memory there is a few screws that need to be undone to get the plastic cover off the factory steering wheel. The horn wires will need to be hooked up to the new steering wheel, but that’s easy to sort out.

Re: aftermarket steering wheel

ok I understand that you need special Boss kit for the cruise control but why for the 4WS?

There is a sensor that moves with the factory steering wheel, which is the primary sensor that determines which way the 4ws unit turns the rear wheels. If a normal boss kit is fitted the 4ws system becomes redundant due to the steering wheel not turning the sensor. Thus a special boss kit hooks up to the sensor allowing it to move with aftermarket steering wheel, and hence 4ws still works.

Any yea cruise control is also built into the boss kit. Key problem is the fact that the wires need to spin around with the steering wheel, so the boss kit solves that atleast.
