Am looking for a Carbon Fiber Steering wheel for a 2007 Exige S, but
which would accomodate the stock air bag. Would u know if I could
use this configuration with an AIM dash??

Am also looking to get Driver+Passenger Side Sills in CF.

Am not able to find these. Any help/direction most appreciated.

I got Jacob's carbon fiber sills installed in my car. Dry carbon. Look killer! :up:
I believe they are not dry carbon but just wet-laid carbon with a matte finish. Dry carbon generally refers to pre-preg autoclaved carbon and typically cost as much as 3 times more.

However, parts like door sills and stuff are merely cosmetic items as far as I'm concerned, so wet-laid carbon is good enough for me... and yes, I do have them along with many other similar CF interior parts on my ride. ;)

Thanks guys for the plug.

Hackzi is correct my CF is not dry carbon. Dry carbon would actually be 4x to make and the small weight savings for these particular parts isn't worth it. Most of our products are lighter than OEM, but plastic is pretty light to start with so the savings is pretty negligible. There are parts such as our GT3 mohawk top that does have a substantial weight savings.

cheers,
Jacob
