    Default Question for folks with three spoke steering wheels with six button audio controls

    These would have been fitted, as far as I can see, on Vectra SXi/SRi/GSi and Signum Design.

    Can any owners of these wheels tell me the different sorts of steering wheel trim that they come with, the bits that fit over the spokes and have the buttons sticking through.

    I'm interested in the finish of them i.e. shiny silver etc. Pics would be even better!

    Basically I'm changing my four spoke Elite leather wheel for a three spoke facelift leather wheel. The trims on mine are peeling a bit so I want to replace them at the same time and want to see what the options are.

    Does anyone know what sort of trim the VXR came with? i.e. was it the six button audio controls or the one with the two little wheels?

    Many thanks

    D

    Mines a Design Dunc, and its 4 spoke with slightly darker alloy effect trim than the strip that runs across the dash on an SRi/SXi.

    Cheers Paul.

    So far I've got the trims (with the six buttons on) being available in the silver colour above and the charcoal like one I have on my Elite. I'm not mad on the silvery one (especially as I don't have the matching interior) but want a change from what I have.

    Is there another colour on any of the models/specs? I really like the colour on the facelift SRi - it's metallic but much darker than the one above and looks very nice. Problem I have is that this has the holes for the wheel type audio controls. I'm probably going to have to stick with the six button controls to control my head unit so am restricted to whatever colour those trims came in!!

    I'm going to pay a visit to my car at the dealer armed with the two wheel controls from this facelift I have and plug them into my wheel to see if it controls all the functions properly. I'm not sure if it will as the left wheel controls the trip computer on the facelift - so not sure what it will do, if anything, on mine!!

    If it works properly I'll switch to the wheeled controls -as long as Vx aren't asking silly money for them!

    Duncan if you look on the irmscher site m8 under 4 spoke steering wheel you can buy the wooden covers and im sure they are the same shape as the 3 spoke (that is as long as yours has the wooden dash trim)

    Duncan, you can also get Granite effect trims for the button type controls, they are self adhesive. Price for the stick on pieces is about £40 for the pair. That is the colour I will need to have on my SXI with three spoke wheel. I have fitted a lower Astra spoke in the granite colour, needed filing to fit.
