Remember to take your rings off when manhandling the wheel or you’re gonna scratch that sweet sweet CF.
Won't matter as soon as the 5 some starts and some broad scratches it with her 9" heels

Always. I do it now even so I don't scratch the leather.

Will do! It's super easy based on YouTube videos.

1) turn wheel all the way to right and use a flathead to release the airbag via a little hole that appears
2) turn to the left and repeat
3) pull out airbag and remove harnesses
4) unbolt old wheel (one bolt) and pull off
5) put new wheel on and bolt on
6) harness reinstall
7) push airbag in till it snaps in place

Done!

Whoa so simple! That's cool man, I'm stoked about the end result. I'm also amazed that the airbag comes out so easily.

I was VERY reluctant to do it until I watched a couple videos.

Do you not need a puller to get the wheel off? That's usually the only tricky part.

So I was enjoying some Dewar's White Label and going outside for fresh air, and I started thinking about steering wheels.

I like the leather feeling a lot especially more so after fifty thousand miles. It kind of broke in and turned a bit shiny and grippy. The CF wheel is :tits: :doe: , that's a great place to have one's hands.

On another note, the Golf R has been very robust and reliable in most other ways. The little :bs: that came up so far is :impressive: . Fixed a kessy problem at the beginning, anything else really has been self inflicted.

Although it isn't the most :racekar: of its class, it is a hell of a place to park one's ass day in and day out, 50k and three appliance pick ups later and I'd have a hard time trading it in, unless it were two vehicles like a jeep and Prius or something.

Yesterday I landed at the airport and walked out, jumped in the R, and hammered it windows down and music blaring for 60 miles to my sister in laws house. It was just so damn satisfying. Most pleasure I've had in a drive in a long long time.

Got a couple mods to do at home and then I'm done for a while (waiting on the wheel). It's nearly perfection.

Don't know yet but on my GTI the UB made an AMAZING difference.

Interesting. Let me know. I had the car detailed last week and they cleaned all of my door jambs and seals, and now they creak and rattle like crazy with the slightest bit of body flex. I've put a few layers of gummi pfledge on all of the door seals but it's slowly coming back. It's bad enough that I want to set the car on fire.

Yeah the UB solved that for me on the GTI.

Similar.

The moment I got mine I wished I had done it a year earlier.

Rear brace installed. I've only done a quick drive with it but it definitely has an impact, probably not as significant as the Unibrace XB did but the install was light years easier. Image
