Been looking for one for ages and randonly one came up for sale today in Japan!

Techart / Momo V32 wheel, with the very rare centre horn pad.

Wheel is in poor condition so will be re-trimmed in black leather with red stitch detail.

Here's a close up of the actual wheel:

Argh!

Awaiting a response on how to exchange and when the new one will arrive.



You're better off buying a Bosch one. AFAIK that's the only one that plugs straight in without the need for cutting and splicing wires.

Yup, Bosch one bought to save cutting / splicing wires, but they sent the wrong Bosch one Sad

Hi Chris, love the new wheel mate, you getting it re trimmed in black or grey to match the dash? As for the lambder, make sure they send you the one with the plug, if they don't DO NOT cut the wires, they don't work! Something to do with the signal that goes down the wires is so weak they don't work if the wires are cut and rejoined. Got the t shirt mate. Anyway keep up the good work thumbsup

Ps if they can't get you one Andrew page along the road will get you one for the next day for £78 ish.

Thanks for the heads up Ian Smile

They sell two types which they recon are both for the 964. Guess who picked the wrong one!

I'll get the wheel trimmed black and red to match the dash and other re-trimmed bits Smile

Here's where I got mine from Mister-Auto:

http://www.mister-auto.co.uk/en/lambda-sensor/bosch-0-258-003-924_g3922_a0300!258!003!924.html

After all the 'research' I decided to go with Bosch for peace of mind Rolling Eyes

I ordered from those chaps first Zingers, they sent the wrong one! French outfit, so little hard to sort the refund, but it's on its way back now.

Bosch one was cheap from our local supplier, so at least the money stays in the country and doesn't pay French workers Wink

Guys please be gentle and try not to laugh at this! Confused

Last time I looked at my exhaust I didn't see a lambda sensor or any sort of wiring. Just what looked like a bolt screwed into the hole where the sensor should be.

Is this even possible or could the sensor be elsewhere on the exhaust. This has been the case since I bought the car.

Cheers,

Thomas

Just kidding mate dont panic if you have no sensor it will have been looped out, although not sure why it would be done if you still have a standard exhaust fitted ? unless it went faulty and looping it out was a quick fix


Not sure about that steering wheel Chris

Hey no worries Gaz, it's a bit of a 90s acquired taste! Most people like them without the centre horn pad. Once it's re-trimmed it may turn a few more heads.

Thomas, that must be wot slowing your car down so much!

Chris, the wheel looks better in that pic without the horn push? Looking forward to seeing it in the flesh. Won't take long for it to come from Japan you'll probably have it for the weekend Cool

Thanks Gaz, I have a decat apparently so that might explain it.

Either way it still goes like stink.

Where would one go to get a wheel trimmed locally?

Looks a lot better without the pad ,

Thomas that explains it some of the de-cats have either no hole for the sensor or its blanked off.
