i got a vt calais and it came with a leather s/wheel, quite nice but as far as woodgrain goes im pretty sure they didn't have them.

but you can always go to super cheap, repco autobarn etc. and pick one up for around $100 then you gotta get the boss kit which the steering wheel bolts onto and there roughly $50-60. did this to the EB and i never looked back, love the small wheel.

so all up your lookin at no more then $180 for the lot and it take not even 10min to hook it all up.

hope this helps

correct.

also my friend kept getting pulled up by the police for having a woodgrain steering wheel in her VL (ones from supercheap.etc). the reason was that they are unsafe because they supply no cushioning whatsoever. tho not sure if they're illegal or the cops were just picky :p
