thinking of selling my Raid airbag steering wheel and adapter. Value?

I was going to keep this after installing the Momo wheel but I want to to help fund some other upgrades.

Can any one help with the value of good used condition wheel and adapter?

The deal would require the purchaser to send me an OEM stock wheel with airbag that I could potentially reinstall down the road if I ever sell and safety (pshaw) is important to the next owner (j/k).

If I can get $800 or more I will do it. If not I will probably store it.


What does the brain trust think?

How much is an Evora or Elise conversion? Probably $1200 - $1500? Arguably more desirable. I would expect that will lower the value some.

I would consider trades for go fast parts....nice adjustable coilovers, LSD, Alconox Header, hens teeth :-)

I have a similar Raid wheel for my 95 esprit. Purchased about 2 years ago. It was just under $200.

I thought they were more expensive than that.

Thanks for the info.

The Raid wheel's adapters can be pricey since they are custom made pieces. Do you have the adapter?

It does come with the adapter to bolt right on to an Esprit.

Also, I think I dont need to worry about the swap for a stock wheel, I think I can easily source one if needed. So you can keep your wheel - although you wont ever imagine putting it back on,
