    Default 2.OD saloon upgrades :)

    My uncle just purchased a 2.OD,
    swapped the steering wheel with similar one
    sample picture(real steering does not have the control button's)

    2OD saloon upgrades  -475218


    Changed the air cleaner box with a original japanese one to reduce engine noise inside cabin

    i think minor upgrades with genuine parts do improve the car. what do u guys say?

    It's always a good idea to go for OEM parts. I recall back in 1996 i bought an armrest for my civic VTi. made a HUGE difference. About 2 years later it became standard.

    we have 2 , 2.OD saloons new models in family. compared both after one of them had the air cleaner box changed. the difference is not VERY noticeble in lower gears. but for highways when u r travelling on constant speed, it does get smoother and quiter inside the cabin

    the shop is in rwp, saddar, trying to re-call the name...

    and yeah installing it, is no problem

    @hash4u

    The centre of the steering as highlighted in the picture must've been the same size as the pakistani corolla, and your uncle would've used the same part on the new steering (as that part contains the airbag). Correct me if i'm wrong.

    Btw the steering looks very nice.

    I'm not good at this, but this is what it should look like. The colour difference is too obvious because of the difference in lighting

    Be polite on the road. Always give way to others, particularly ambulances and pedestrians.

    i'll take it
    btw do you know what was the original price of the steering, in case I dont want to exchange with mine?

    Also, I posted the picture because I wanted to know if the colours actually match or not?
