3-spoke steering wheel

Is $200 pretty reasonable for a brand new black 3-spoke steering wheel for a 996/Boxster? What do you think the cheapest I can pick up an airbag for it would be? Thanks in advance.

Well, it better be.
But what is so important about driving faster than anyone else?
Lots of people go through life doing things badly. Racing's important to men who do it well.

That is one of the lowest prices I have heard of for a 3-spoke wheel. Check eBay for the airbag, I think they normally go from between $200-400.

Best I saw on eBay was around $500 for the airbag right now. I'm looking to spend around $500 for both if possible. If I'm paying $700-$800 I would rather pick up some used litronics.

Any chance it includes airbag? Now that would be a steal! For new its a very good bargain anyway.

Edit -- sorry 'bout the bag, Kid. I was answering while you posted.

No airbag but it was only taken out of the box to take a picture so it's not gonna be scuffed up.

Actually, I took a 2nd look and it appears to be off of a 997 and not a 996 so I'm thinking it won't work.

That is not a 996/986 wheel.

I tell local owners $500 for the wheel and bag is fair. Finding the set for that price is the trick. On ebay they go for more depending on the bidding.

I paid $400 for the wheel and bag. But that was many years ago and I bought it from a local 2000 S owner who was converting his car into a track car.

Your old 4 spoker and bag is worth $50 - $100 on ebay. Not much of a demand for a 4 spoke wheel with 996/986 owners.

Looks like a 997/987/Cayenne wheel to me.

Bought a used 3 spoke wheel and bag on Ebay about a year ago and the bidding went to $500 before I won it.
