    Awesome. So how much would you charge for this type of install. Seems like alot of the guys that do major mods are all down south.

    So it's an actual alignment? I thought they are just adjusting the steering wheel to get it back centered. ?

    I'd like to try.

    I'd be interested, I'm getting ready to order this steering wheel. PM me how I can get a hold of you since you're in Nor-Cal. Cheers!

    be aware that the one MIT sell is not the "JDM" one they look the same in a picture but the texture of the leather is feels hard & significantly lighter than the one you can get from japan. I hope they did not use cheap materials to produce it and will break during any impacts like other cheap aftermarket wheels. I am also located in san Francisco if anyone needs help on installation on weekends.

    @Accordlayingkit Damn! I know, all I was going to do was lower our car but all of a sudden the JDM bug bit but I do hate that steering wheel in our car and wanted to change it out for a more sporty and leather wheel. Even in my Bug I have a nice Flat 4 wood steering wheel,
    I really gotta stay out of this section (lol).

    Can't wait, the smell and the feel of the leather already feel 100x better than the stock one. Reminds me of the MOMO steering wheel I had in my 85 Corolla GTS.
