"- Custom Billet Aluminum Grilles"
Not mass produced, but custom made using original OEM cores (genuine frames and hubs) these exotic wood or carbon fiber style steering wheels feature fine leather accents and are sold on an exchange basis. This means that you will need to return your old steering wheel to us, so that we can send it to the factory as a core for making another beautiful custom steering wheel.
Since they are made using original factory cores, these steering wheels are direct replacements, requiring no adapters or modifications. Simply move your original airbag-module over to the new wheel, and presto - a custom finish steering wheel with a factory airbag!

"- INSTALLATION TIPS"
There are a couple of things to keep in mind when it comes to high-powered light bulbs. Do not overload your vehicle's charging system! For example, four 100W bulbs for high and low beam, is more than any vehicle can handle without upgrades to wiring (and possible adding relays) or other components of the charging system. Vehicles with "big" stereos and other high electrical usage accessories will further aggravate the situation as will DRL (Daytime Running Light) applications.
Daytime Running Lights that operate through your vehicles normal headlights ("powered-down" or not) are "on" all the time, and that will significantly reduce the life expectancy of any light bulb, especially high-powered models. In addition, they often produce violent voltage spiking since they are automatically turned-on when starting the vehicle.
DO NOT install extreme high-power bulbs in small composite (plastic) headlight housings, as they might possibly melt the housing and the wiring connector.
Voltage stability is crucial to trouble-free high performance lighting. Some vehicles are more prone to voltage "spiking" than others. Have your vehicle's charging rate measured prior to installing any high-performance bulb to ensure stability of the electrical system and to determine whether it might need upgraded wiring.
"Spiking" is the most common "cause of death" for any performance bulb. Avoid "spiking" by always turning "ON" your lights AFTER starting your car, and turn them "OFF" prior to turning the car's ignition off.
It is important that you check to make sure what type of bulb your particular vehicle needs. You can find the type of bulbs your specific vehicle uses in several locations. One place is the head light lens. The bulb type will often be marked on it. Another place is on the bulb itself, the bulb type and wattage will be printed or stamped into the base. The vehicle owner's manual should also tell you what type of bulb you need for your head lights, and/or fog lights.
You can also check a reference guide (click on "LINKS" on our navigation bar on top of this page to access an online industry guide). However, due to frequent changes by the car makers often without notice, we can not guaranty that the guide is completely accurate. Again, consult your owners manual or dealer prior to ordering.
