steering wheel swap
 
I have a 02 wrx looking to change my steering wheel, don't like the look/feel of oem one. Would like to retain airbag functionality and everything else. Probably will have to be another subaru wheel. Anyone done this before or know of any wheels that might be compatible?
Thanks

STi steering wheels from 03-07 will fit iirc, 03-04 ones look best imo.

I swapped my GC8 wheel out for an 07 Spec C wheel. Looks great and was a painless trade out.

Get a Prova wheel and use the stock airbag and centre while you're at it, look amazing


Cost a packet too though

so it wasn't too hard? is there much disconnection and things like that or is it basically un screwing and swapping in only disconnecting horn?

Yes and no I have done the 05 sti swap in mine, it bolts in but that's where it ends. The clock springs are different, mounting for the clock spring is different. I ended up getting a second steering wheel off a 05 gx with mounts for clock spring to make it work, and still had to drill holes into the column to make shit work. Ask Doug he did mine and no wires were cut / spliced in the process.
