Looks like some bastard's fitted a Fiat steering wheel to that Maserati.

The steering wheel ..yeah ...has some kind of degradation . It's gone all sticky and spongey ..Unlike memory foam, if you pressure dent it , the dent remains ! Bit like brown Plastacine..
A replacement steering wheel can be had from ebay for £20 , but this airbag stuff shits me up . Do you disconnect the battery , and prise it off to get to the nut ? Will the airbag light come on ? Every other light seems to be on ! What the fuck is " CITY " light ? Press the "city" button ,and it goes out..whats that all about then? Fucking modern motors :cry:

With the engine running and driving ,(sounds sweet enough) there's a red flashing oil light , an amber engine light , an amber triangle with an exclamation mark , an amber light bulb failure light ....

I'm more used to a speedo with a red charge light , a blue for main beam , and a green for indicators ..and fuel and temp gauges

That is truly appalling, infinitely undesirable and probably a bio-hazard. Well bought!

There's a knack to getting the airbag out of those steering wheels. It's not hard, two screwdrivers poked through holes in the rear of the wheel and move a clip out the way. Just remember to disconnect the battery for a while before hand. Plenty of YouTube videos showing how to do it.

I think the CITY button makes the steering even lighter.

You could always buy a steering wheel cover but that won't stop the dents.
As Bertram says the CITY button lightens up the steering to give an invacar effect.
Given all the lights been on I'd park it outside my house and use it for Xmas lights.
