    Hi! Like i wrote in the title, I wanted to ask if it is possible to put a MiTo QV's steering wheel, which looks much nicer than the normal one, in my MiTo from 2010 with the buttons for the audio system on it.

    Alfa GTV & 916 Spider
    Dont know about you all, but I have been embarrassed by the thin and slippery standard wheel (even the later P2 onward one) over many years and always wanted to get a spare wheel I had "improved" and made more like a quality feel to it. Oddly, I have struggled to get a local person who would...
  10. S2 Steering Wheel

    The Classic Alfa Romeos
    I'm looking for a replacement wooden steering wheel for my S2 1974 Spider. The original has turned blonde with age and because it was in dry storage for a long period before I bought it, it has cracked and split in places. I'm told its easier to replace than to restore. Any help appreciated.

    I love my GTV. A phase 1, 1998, red with black leather interior. But i used to have a 156 with a wooden wheel, and i miss it. Can i fit a wooden 156 steering wheel to my GTV easily? Are they interchangable? Found one with airbag, just down the road. I suspect airbag will be an issue, as it...

    General Alfa Discussion
    Dudez? How can you clean a leather steeringwheel? Should you use the same stuff you use for cleaning leather seats? After 8 months my steeringwheel looks darker and shiny (I have a greasy skin, yuk). The gearknob is showing signs of wear btw, isn't that very fast?
