United-Kingdom Steering Wheel - 2 or 3 spoke

Hi

I have been looking at Cooper S cars from 2002/2006 here in the UK and found some with 2 spoke wheels and others with 3 spoke - initially I thought the 3 spoke was from the facelift models but then I found a 2002 car with a 3 spoke

So, my question, was the 3 spoke an option or has someone been retro fitting one?

Cheers
Graham

Hi ya

Well they were an option and also they were a retro fit.
And it is possible to by one and just fit it.

The only way to find out for shore is on the cars original build sheet.
Failing that put the last seven digits of the vin in this site and look for multifunction steering wheel and sports steering wheel

Hope this helps

The 3-spoke steering wheel was available with December 2003 production.
