Well as soon as i get my car back im going to be slowly doing the interior( buying rims exhaust and lowering so not much funds :cry: ) but i was wondering about a aftermarket steering wheel...Should i get one? Does it do anything to your insurance because of no airbag? Doesnt it make it much more unsafe and increase dieability? :lol:

if you have an airbag i'd suggest not messing with it...I'd rather leave it on there myself. But some people (like siragan) like smaller wheels because it's easier to turn them. I can see where he's coming from because when I drive i sit back a little and the steering wheel looks huge. I dunno, it's more for looks than anything.

Well I dunno about that airbag, but you don't have to tell the insurance people anything. Heck, a guy at school has a turboed TSi that pulls over 300 horsepower and it's listed as a base talon. He never gets into wrecks with the thing so they never find out.

Yeah that's true. He ain't exactly what you'd call /poor/ tho, so I imagine he could probably handle the insurance payments if he wasn't such a cheapskate. His dad paid for all the parts. Lemme see if I can find some pics of it. (PS I don't think he actually drives it without paying full insurance anymore)

Anyways, there's a pic on this site:

Go down until you see David Shulenburg, AKA Shoe. That white TSi is his car.

Yeah I know a kid my age who is rollin in a 3000GT. Absolutely gorgeous car... his dad essentially bought it for him and I'm jealous as all hell... it was beautiful until he ended up running it into a campus 6-wheeler when he was being retarded and racing his friend.

It sucks to see stupid kids fuck up beautiful cars. Such a shame. I have to suck back the tears every time I see it... :cry:

He's a pretty careful driver. I've never been able to entice him to even /do the speed limit/ let alone so much as rev is engine or anything. Even tailgating him with an F150 did nothing! (I sound like an arsehole for saying that, don't I?) I think he only races at the tracks. I never heard anything about him being in a street race. Maybe he has though... I dunno.

I think missouri lets you do whatever you want too; I'm not quite sure. Those things are expensive though; I've had both of mine stolen and had to replace them. Funny that they went for my airbags and didn't take my speakers or cd changer. I guess the airbags were worth more.

No offense, but thank God he talked your dad out of it. A 16 yr old with a 3kGT. I would guarantee that thing be wrecked within a year. I know I prolly would have if I had that much power at my finger tips.

Yeah? I know a 15 year old on his /permit/ who's dad bought him a 'vette. I'm not sure what year or model it is; I'd say after '97 sometime but it's definitely not a Z06. Still, a 'vette is a 'vette! He can't drive it without his dad in it though, thank god. I think maybe I'll put my car in my garage and surround it with concrete blocks until he wrecks the thing.

My dad bought me my 97 LX but I really don't think there's too much harm in that. It's a pretty darn nice car for a first car, especially one that I didn't purchase myself. It even came with a cd changer stock. So it's good. I hope I'm not considered 'spoiled.' I do my own work on it.
