Well worth getting this! I love these chips! Once my gearbox is in I will let people know how much quicker it has made my car at the drags. I'm guessing at least 2 tenths which is great bang for your $!

read the rules on what you can do. Steering wheels are a good defect target. You will need to get ADR approved wheel with a padded centre.

I got a momo (ADR approved) and a nice MX5 centre pad which fitted perfectly.

Should check with your engineer but from what I have read given the age of our vehicles, yes.

I have had a defective steering wheel on every car I owned.
If you were to be a real smart ass to a police officer then they would defect you on this.

Like my mate with a s14 who said to a cop 'do your best, it's completely road legal'
Defected for aftermarket gear knob with no gear selection numbers. Lol

1600gti thats so wrong that a cop can do that just because they have the power to, yeah I figured I would probably get defected for the steering wheel if I put one on but if your not a smart ass to the cops they might leave you alone ahaha :p

Its not wrong, its the law. If I was a cop and some punk was a smart arse I would go over their car too. Cops put up with a lot of s**t from people to do their job, so I don't blame them when they get all stickler for the law.

Be nice and they will too. Has got me out of speeding tickets, running my car on road in drag stripped down form (no seats etc), both at the same time :oops: .

Best though is not to risk it really. most of the rules are actually for your and other road users safety. On a track, well you are there at your own risk! :)

Steering wheels must have ADR Approval number stamped into the back of the wheel to be legal... 99% of the wheels on the market are not legal

Yeah the list goes on with defective items you can buy from auto stores.
Even your clutch/brake/accel pedal add on plate are defective.

I agree with flying grape. If I were a cop and someone was being smart I would teach them a lesson.
I have full respect for police and most of the time the will respect you and let all the little silly defective things go.

Yeah that's true 1600gti if your nice to them most of the time there nice back :)
I'm not sure about a steering wheel or anything like that I'm going to wait first and fix some things. I bought a red led interior light for my car will put a pic up later, I know its defect but it will only be on at night when the door is open and I'm also getting red led strips for the interior will also put pics up.

Car looks amazing after spending 3 hours washing and polishing, it was exhausting but so worth it :)
