If your were to change your steering wheel, which way would you go.

I really like the 930S Style Steering Wheel but it is $349.00 at pelican plus it says you need the Hub Kit, for 930S Style Formel Steering Wheel, 928 (1978-95) at $123.00
The Porsche Crest is $60.25 and the 930S Style Steering Wheel Spacer is $56.00

Thats $588.00 plus shipping

Is there any other choice

Have you checked out the Momo options? Not sure how much you save, or if the look would be what you want. I know 928s up to a certain year (I thought '89) could use a simple Momo adapter to mount one.

I have a Momo Apache in my (disassembled) race car, but it probably isn't the look you want in your street 928.

The 928 Sport wheel is the way I will go. If I remember correctly, you can order it as the 928 wheel, it comes with the hub also. I think Roger sells them for mid $400's. I think, not ordered mine yet.

Ed, just noticed you have an Iris blue auto... how many are out there? There must be at least 4...I know of three 5spd Iris blue '94's. Great color! Love to see a pic of your wheel! BTW, if you have ALL those 928's you have overtaken me on the 928 front... Maybe I should include my two parts cars (that I don't actually have anymore) so I can catch up! LOL!

James, from what I read on the Registry there is only 1 Iris Blue 1994 GTS auto and I have it.I would have preferred a 5 spd but I bought it for the color and price more than anything else.I'll post pics of the wheel later today.
And remember,the one that dies with the most toys wins. Ed

UPDATE EDIT: Here are a couple of the wheel

Ed,

I think you are right...all the Iris blue's I have seen (and I have seen all of them except yours) were 5spd cars with classic gray interiors...wait maybe one was not CG on the inside...I can't remember now, it has been a long time.

Back to the steering wheel question though...frankly I don't have a problem with the factory wheels from Porsche and rather like them a lot when Paul Champagne has worked his magic on them (or maybe it is Linda's magic and Paul's technical proficiency cutting out the beautiful hides... ;-)

If anyone needs a decent used '94 GTS air bag wheel in Classic Gray let me know. I have a decent one for sale. You could put it in your car and drive if you wanted to (it is nice enough for that) but I was ready for an upgrade and got it from Paul...so I have the original wheel from my '94 available. $250 + shipping... Of course it is complete with air bag, but I think we stole one of the horn button wires, so you would need to use the one out of your current wheel or order one up from the big three.

Ed, I REALLY like that wheel in there. It looks like it fits right in with the rest of the interior, and I am sure being a Momo that it is plenty comfortable!

It does look nice but It is missing the padded horn pad with the nice big Porsche emblem. I hate when what I want is the most expencive.

It is really comfortable that was a bonus for me.I liked the style and the way it compliments the overall interior.Then when I actually drove it I was impressed.Then the money seemed even better spent.
I like the standard Porsche wheels also,but I like to change it up sometimes.I would like to get a Porsche crest in the horn button though. Ed

Couldn't agree more Ed. Keeping it Porsche is nice, but I can't always afford that and comfort as well as "making it mine" are very important to me. ;)

I just installed the 930 Steering wheel yesterday, it has an amazing feel to it. I do not like the color match to the dash. It is more of a charcoal then a black. I am looking to see if I can get it dyed. If it was bright black it would be perfect.

If I can fiqure out how to post a picture I will show you what it looks like. The first thing my 5 year old said was too bad it didn't match. I have found a local company that can dye the wheel to look stock.

I was looking at Paul's site recently, considering having him re-do my stock steering wheel, a shift boot, and either a new knob or recover mine.

my intent is to keep the 928 cosmetics relatively stock, except for maybe a few tasteful interior touches.

I have made many mods to my track 911, incl a MOMO wheel.

I've got to be honest here, Brad. I despise the look of that Momo in the 928. I don't think that it fits the rest of the interior very well at all. To each their own, though. Just saying. :D

I think I know what you mean now that I take a second look.
This is getting to be a hard choice which may end up costing $500 bucks so I better make sure I like it.
