I find that the standard steering wheel on the s3 is a bit too large in diameter and a bit skinny for my liking, any recommendations/photos of your own cars? I'm not worried about originality, although a period looking wheel would be nice. What would be a reasonable price to pay, including the boss adapter? Does anyone have a spare for sale?
So many questions, so little time!

The most common replacement is the Munari Ferrero wheel (see photo) but they are expensive (~150). There are always quite a few different types on Italian Ebay and that would probably be a good place to start to get some ideas. Prices seem to start around 20.
The adapters are about 50, and can be got from Italy (Ebay or elsewhere), and I guess Omicron can get them as well.
Its worth having a think about whether you want just a smaller diameter, or also to bring the wheel closer to you. The adapter will bring the wheel about 2" closer, a dished wheel even more. The smaller diameter will increase the steering effort required, but I doubt that is much of an issue with the 1300 steering box.

My car came with a very nice Mota Lita wheel (14ish inches diameter and quite chunky) which was great to hold on to.  The damp in the car eventually rotted the leather away so I replaced it with a very similar looking cheapo Astrali plastic covered wheel which felt almost the same but didn't deteriorate.

Both wheels screwed straight onto the standard boss in a Series 3 car.

You could look out for a lancia 2000 (flavia) wooden wheel as slightly smaller, looks same and has thicker wooden rim (quite rare so maybe expensive). I have this on my 1300. I have a smaller sparco vintage leater rim on my HF which really builds the biceps at low speed. But noas much as the 12 inch that was on originally (which is great for tracks).

If you type in "fulvia volante" to www.ebay.it there are about half a dozen fulvia specific wheels, ranging from 20 to 150.
If you go to ebay.co.uk and look for steering wheel in the classic car section there is a large choice (200+)

see here

and here

if you keep looking something will turn up  Smiley
