To the OP - if you're still around, please confirm if the 88 hub will work for you in this picture - the black smaller one with the shiny Momo adapter - top of photo

Seems S4/S4s/Airbag cars have same splines; I had hard time following this thread, but the answer appears to be in post #12:

The isuzu boss will fit. I dont know if it can adapt to your Elise adapter.
Post a pic.
There's a couple threads that show which boss to order for an Isuzu.

|sleekgt||The 88 Stevens Esprit used A092H6027H steering hub (boss) and here’s the one I have ( ignore the shiny black spacer/ adapter. Note this is different than 87 and may be different than S4 but posting just in case. SJ sports cars used to sell this but no longer.|

What is the part number of the broken part? Given it's a V8, I'm guessing the power steering is much different than the non-power steering Esprits (earlier).
However, you never know - SJ Sports cars has A085H4026H (for 2 spoke (Giugiaro?) steering wheel and they used to sell a hub for the Stevens Esprit.
Post the number or a picture and we can see if those parts work.

Esprit V8/S4 Steering Wheel Boss
Posting out of desperation here. I finally completed a lengthy mechanical restoration of my 98 Esprit, only to have the steering wheel boss crack in to a thousand bits (long story). What I have is a car that runs beautifully (and looks so as well) but zero steering wheel due to the broken boss. After researching things, I have discovered that this car has an Elise steering wheel (airbag not connected) attached to a customized adapter that bolts to the boss of an European model (which is what broke). The ugly eye-sore that they put on the US cars do not have this boss.
At this point, I am searching for guidance from anyone who can point me in the right direction for acquiring any boss that will fit the 16mm/28 spline steering column. I've check all over eBay, JAE, SJsportscars, PNM, dark corners of the internet, etc.. no luck yet.
