Think the different widths are only a problem when on the same axle...

^^ Yeah agreed...

However I also thought flat bottomed steering wheels were illegal...

Just joins a list of cars that have illegal parts. WRX with the bonnet scoop here in SA, Honda Odyssey etc. with the blue parker lights...

Must be...

I know they have stretched the laws for imported vehicles... such as Skylines etc., they only need to meet window tint requirements from Japan (20 grade all round) instead of our more strict regulations...

I mean they cant very well defect a high production australian built car can they?

yea i think thats it basically, factory fitment is legal but you wouldn't think they would be able to sell anything against the law

i have a flat bottom steering wheel and if anything it makes it easier to drive turning is great and more comfortable to rest your hand on

all the parts are engineered for the car. rexy's had to be tested for the bonnet scoop and make sure it will not hurt anyone in an accident. honda odyssy's parkers look blue but they put out a white beam making them legal. car makers go through alot of **** to get all these parts through.
