Thanks for the tip. I called them - sounds good. But I'm in Oshawa so it's a tiny bit out of my way. Anyone else know any others?

Yeah, ridiculous as it seems, there are very few race shops in Ontario that actually stock an product. CSC Racing in new market is another for future reference.

^ you're not kidding. I found out that JRP, mentioned above, is the only distributor of sparco and momo in Ontario. They were good enough give me the numbers of two retailers local to me in Oshawa, but niether of those returned my calls. So I just drove over to JRP themselves.

I assume the market for these steering wheels is quite slim because all modern cars have airbags. And I could not buy online because I'm buying the wheel mainly because I have long fingers - so I absolutely had to hold the thing in order to choose one that fits well.

Anyway - job done.

I guess that's why they charge what they do.
