I know this has been discussed recently by the gen 4 owners, but if anyone is interested, pop on over to www.hotukdeals.com/deals/new-steering-lo...ham-approved-3236480

Not sure when the deal ends, it's from eurocarparts using code Bank70.

Hopefully saves someone a few pennies that hasn't committed to one yet.

B#gg#r!

Bought one last week. :evil:
They might be good, but they are a massive rip-off at £120, they are more like £30-£50 worth tops.

And then to add insult to injury, they can't even line it so that it doesn't wreck the steering wheel, and expect you to pay another £10 for a pair of old tights to put over the steering wheel, that should have been included with it in the first place.

Strangely, those tartan steering wheel covers that the pound shop used to sell are no more, and I ended up with a £4 one off eBay.

If it suddenly breaks, go back to the last thing that you did before it broke and start looking there :)

They are expensive, but the best available from what ive looked at. The steering protector shud defo be included with the lock, but we are talking about companies here, and we all know we are in the era of rip offs. I used a 10 pound steering wheel cover from halforfs. It works a charm, and overal, am happy with the lock.

I've got it now anyway.

I suppose that for all I know it could have saved the car being stolen already, which is worth the £120.

Most of the Fiesta and Focus STs that are still on their drives round here have them. (The ones that don't are either already stolen, or behind like a telegraph pole set in the drive)
Security post fitting is a big growth industry round here ;)
