Interior Refresh

11 Apr

Personal Works Bell Steering Wheel Combo with Rapfix Quick Release

With the nice weather here, it’s time to do some freshening up. We spend so much time agonizing over the right set of wheels, or the right body kit, that the interior often goes overlooked. Yet this is where we spend all our time! A great way to breathe some new life into a tired interior is with a new steering wheel. We offer a wide range of wheels from Personal, Nardi, Momo, OMP, Sparco, and hubs and quick releases from Works Bell and Momo. No replica stuff, just the genuine articles at great deals. We firmly believe that this is the sort of stuff you do once, and do right. No sense buying a hub that requires you to ditch your clockspring, or renders your horn completely useless. Why bother installing a quick release that gets sloppy and develops slack after a few months of use. Works Bell stuff is all made in Japan, use consistently tight tolerances, and, in a word, lasts. I’ve personally got a Works Bell generation 1 quick release in one of my cars that’s been there for over 10 years and still works great. Buying this stuff correctly the first time is way easier and way cheaper than buying it wrong once and then correcting yourself.

We can help tailor the perfect setup for your needs, for nearly every car out there.

Aftermarket Steering Wheel Packages

3 May

 

One of the most popular upgrades we offer are aftermarket steering wheels. This is an easy to install way to really dress up your interior and change the overall character and look, as well as feel, of your car.

We offer steering wheels from a variety of manufacturers including Sparco, Personal, Nardi, and OMP.   All are top notch quality, and are made with safety, performance, and longevity in mind.

More wheels can be found on our site: http://z1auto.com/submodel.asp?model=evo&cat=interior

For Sparco wheels, click here: http://sparcousa.com/steering.asp

What Will I Need to Install It?

There are 2 basic ways you can install an aftermarket steering wheel to your car. The first, and most cost effective is using what is called a standard length hub + the steering wheel of your choice. The second option is to install a short hub, quick release and then the steering wheel. A quick release will let you easily remove the steering wheel when you exit the car, which is a great theft deterrent.

For the hubs and quick releases, we stick to 1 brand – Works Bell Japan. The reason is simple – hubs and quick releases are all they do, and they are the innovators! While others have tried to copy their patented design, it never looks as good, is complete, or lasts as long as Works Bell. Their hubs all come with everything you need, from plug and play resistors to keep your airbag light off, to the torx wrench to remove your stock steering wheel. The quick releases use reliable mechanisms that will not become loose or sloppy over time, unlike the knock offs (like NRG).

The most popular quick release we offer are the Works Bell Rapfix II. These are an interlocking ball bearing design, and offered in a variety of colors, including red, black, blue, orange, silver. These sell for $325 each

Works Bell also offers a new, less expensive quick release called the QRSII. This uses a sliding lever design, and is a stealthier, less expensive alternative to the Rapfix II. These sell for $240 each

Since there are so many different combinations of steering wheels, hubs and quick releases, it’s impossible to list all the prices here. So, we encourage you to contact us at z1sales@z1auto.com with your exact request, and we can tailor a package specifically for you.

OMP Products Now Available!

22 Apr

We are pleased to announce we are now offering the full range of OMP street and competition products for your car! OMP is an Italian firm, steeped in tradition in motorsport. They offer a TON of products, ranging from seats, to steering wheels and shift knobs, to racing helmets, racing suits, and more

OMP was established in Genoa (Italy) in 1973 by brothers Piergiorgio, Roberto and Claudio Percivale, with the initial production of rollbars for competition cars.

Over the years, OMP implements new specializations, becoming a protagonist on a national level in the following sectors: Racing (safety components for competition cars and drivers), Karting (accessories and components for Kart competitions) and Tuning (special components for road cars). OMP became well-known among the professionals and the amateurs of this sector because it provided clothes for drivers such as Ayrton Senna and Nigel Mansell in Formula 1 and Tommi Makinen and Carlos Sainz in the rally worldwide championship. Its popularity was definitively confirmed in 1996, when Michael Schumacher chose OMP as his personal “tailor” for 11 years of victories with Ferrari.

The high quality standards (UNI EN ISO 9001/2000 certification) and the global offer are our strength points. All our products are designed and tested in order to obtain the maximum level of safety and are compliant with the strict international homologation standards for car competitions.

New Prova Steering Wheels for 2008 + Subaru’s

18 Nov

These have been out for a couple months now, but it’s new to us and I figured most people are not yet aware of them!

These wheels were done as a joint venture between Prova Japan and DAMD, one of Japan’s most respected aftermarket manufacturers. They teamed up to offer steering wheel replacements that are remarkable improvements vs the stock units!

These are offered in 2 types – one with a flat, or D shaped bottom, and the other that is round. Both wheels measure 358mm (stock is 375mm), which while smaller than stock, remains comfortable and functional for daily use. These are trimmed in suede and alcantera. Both have red stitching, and feature an embossed Prova logo, letting everyone know they are the real deal! The best part is, your factory airbag assembly, and all steering wheel controls fit right back in place with zero modifications!

Rare ‘Ish

28 May

This wheel is so cool it deserves it’s own post. Personal Fitti, 350mm, black suede, red stitching. Not too often you see it in this configuration, usually it has the yellow stitch. The attention to detail they put into these things is so nice, you have to touch it to appreciate it. The crossed stitches are perfectly symetrical throughout, the embossed “Personal” logo in the center. Plus, it’s got the offset center section, which further enhances it’s unique appearance. Aftermarket wheels like this are such a clean and simple way to dress up your interior and make it fresh again. And for your track whores, the suede rim gives much better grip than plain leather. 1 up for grabs if anyone wants it !

Orange Crush

Just got in the Works Bell Team Orange steering wheels – pretty cool stuff.  I know it’s a bit washed out looking, not sure what I did differently on this pic.  A rare, rare piece indeed (in stock if you want one!)
