[04/03/2012] EDIT: Unfortunately, I’ve made the decision to remove this Quick Release kit. As fantastic as it may be, I just can’t get used to the new driving position such a device creates. It brings the steering wheel far too close to me for my liking – and is something that I just won’t be able to get used to. However, I shall leave the information below intact for future reference.
As you know, my MR2 is tucked up safely in my garage whilst the worst of the British weather passes by:
Whilst it sits there, I thought I’d take it upon myself to implement some small modifications. The first of which is my new steering wheel quick release boss.
I’ve always fancied myself one of these purely as an anti-theft device (let’s face it – who’s going to attempt to steal a car without a steering wheel?). But I’m not going to lie, it does serve somewhat as a novelty item too!
Fitting it to my Sparco steering wheel and MOMO boss was a breeze, and I’m more than happy with the final result.
This modification is worth it for peace of mind alone – and that’s a winner in my book!
