Very pretty. It would be even beter if it had a couple switches or buttons on it. I'd like something to control my high beams & fog lights without having to take my hands off the wheel. The highs aren't that far of a reach, but switching the fog lights is awkward, almost dangerous at certain cornering speeds.

Being that California is really strict when it comes to cars, it's probably not legal to take out your airbags. However, due to my inability to overcome the earth's gravity and grow tall enough to sit far enough from the wheel :p, I can take it out provided I tell the proper authorities. Of course, I could be wrong.

nice wheel but i guess the questions is really are you looking for show or go?? and if you are short i wonder what laws are goverend by air bag rules. I have noticed more and more people lately sitting literally 2 inches off the airbag and the only thing that comes to mind is OUCH!

Most states prohibit modifying cars in ways that make them less safe - like removing seatbelts - so chances are same goes for the air bag.

I do remember someone, I think it was Subie Gal as a matter of fact, that got special legal permission to remove her airbag, due to the fact that she is incredibly short (5'1" I think). I have no idea what the legal limit to that would be though.

You may be able to get it legalized,BUT,,,if you ever were involved in an accident and your insurance adjuster happened to notice;) that there was no airbag,,you could very possibly be up s**ts creek without a paddle.They tend to frown on such things.
I like the wheel though,but fr me no airbag would cancel that one out.

If you just tell your insurance Co., they can't complain. It IS your choice. They want you to tell them though, because you've got a 'passive restraint' discount on your policy that would have to be removed.

When you're driving mountain roads at night, and you see headlights coming around the corner, it's polite (and safe) to turn off your high beams so you don't blind oncoming traffic. My fog lights have brighter bulbs in them, and are aimed higher than stock (they actually light up the road in front of me, especially around corners), so I treat them like they were high beams. I don't want to cause anyone to wreck.
