Re: gt steering wheels for $800?

The "Sports" steering wheel in the XR's is only about $500 or something? Thats the same as the GT one... as far as I can remember anyway.

BA XR6 - December 2002 ~ Soon to disappear if Ford CRC can't fix it....

45,000km service coming up - and i'll be asking for a sizable list of fixes:
* Gearbox (3rd time)
* Steering click (5th time)
* Brake Shudder (2nd time, and has the applied "Fix")
* etc...

$695 on the falcon or $800 on Territory, however its only a factory fitted item..

Goodluck getting one at dealer level less then $1200.

I only the people writing this post would stop using the word "only" Even $500 is bloody pricey for a steering wheel!! Have fun spending your banks money, or that of us who pay our full tax.

WHy do you assume you pay more tax than me? IMO anyone with a "business", who can claim a vehicle as a deduction is being subsidised by the PAYE tax payer. Think of it as a toy subsidy if you like.

*shrugs* I didn't even pay for it, dealer threw it in.

Though after using a standard wheel and the sports/gt wheel i'd easily pay for the upgrade next time if I had to.

Oh and by the way i'm not taking any perks on my car. I pay enough in tax to justify at least 5 full time people on the dole as my employees.
