Default MX5 IVA Steering Wheel

AS the title says,
Anybody know where and what type of steering wheel will suit a MX5 steering column to pass IVA. I would like one still with the hooter in the middle and possibly smaller in size.
Anybody got any ideas?....

I knew you was still lurking out there somewhere...
How's things going?....
My poor old car had a MOMO steering wheel fitted and the arms have holes in it and it's not padded so I thought this would be a fail?
What did you use for yours?

Yep, I'm still lurking about, still check in most days to see what you're all up too
Things aren't too bad, just a bit grumpy about the weather, haven't been out in the car for ages now.

I had the same problem as it happens - the previous owner had swapped the donor wheel for a horrible aftermarket one that was never going to pass IVA
I ended buying an original MX5 one off ebay, think it cost about a tenner or so.
Still need to replace it at some point as it looks massive in the Haynes!

I have the OEM Momo wheel for mine like this...



...which comes with a padded centre like this...



If thats the wheel you have the padded bit is available on ebay. Usually go for 10-15.

Cheers

I have one of these pads for the centre of mine as well. I have also got a smaller momo wheel on there at the moment and the pad fits this one as well

Build cost.... seems to be spending more on tools than car bits at the moment! (they will be handy in the future though).
