Well I was at the Vancouver International Auto Show today and I went to check out the Volvo cars of course. <IMG NAME="icon" SRC="http://www.vwvortex.com/vwbb/tongue.gif" BORDER="0"> Well I just loved the steering wheels they have on the R designs. Where is the best place for the right price to get one of those babies!<p><IMG SRC="http://a332.g.akamai.net/f/332/936/12h/www.edmunds.com//media/il/news/2008/0204/rdesign.steering.wheel.500.jpg" BORDER="0"><p><A HREF="http://www.vivaperformance.com/catalog/product_info.php?cPath=69_72&products_id=431" TARGET="_blank">http://www.vivaperformance.com...d=431</A><p>Can anybody find a better deal anywhere else?

Re: aluminum Inlay Steering Wheel (Vash13)

I bought mine off of Ebay from Paul's Motors... it came in 2nd day air. Here's a link:<p><A HREF="http://cgi.ebay.com/ebaymotors/VOLVO-SPORTS-STEERING-WHEEL-WITH-ALUMINUM-INLAY_W0QQcmdZViewItemQQ_trksidZp3286Q2em20Q2el1116QQhashZitem220355267608QQitemZ220355267608QQptZMotorsQ5fCarQ5fTruckQ5fPartsQ5fAccessories" TARGET="_blank">http://cgi.ebay.com/ebaymotors...ories</A><p>It's more expensive now than when I bought mine.

Re: aluminum Inlay Steering Wheel (Vash13)

i was happy with my experience with <A HREF="http://www.myswedishparts.com" TARGET="_blank">http://www.myswedishparts.com</A><p>you can find instructions from volvo on their website. <p>beware that the aluminum inlay (like all aluminum trim pieces used in volvos) is real aluminum and is searing hot when its hot and painfully cold when its cold<p>

Can you be kind to tell me the part #? I did a search on the site and is it the one with the sport or w/o sport? Can anybody tell me where Viva performance is located? I guess it really comes down on shippin costs, the method of shipment and where they are located. <br>Thanks

Re: aluminum Inlay Steering Wheel (Vash13)

yea Vash, it was a while back, but I believe it totaled right at 425 shipped. I got it installed at a Volvo shop locally along with some springs and sway all together. To install the wheel, it should only take an hour of labor at the dealership.<p>And yea, I live in Louisiana, so in the summer I've learned to be VERY careful on the hot days. It's no joke.
