Just wanted to see if anyone here ever swaped it out, is the JDM Altezza steering and airbag the same color as our IS?? I would install this instead of the stock wheel/bag but don't want to have a difference in color with the rest of the dash/interior.

thanks in advance....

The only time you're supposed to see the color of the airbag is when it blows. :lol: I wouldn't care if it was rainbow-colored. :wink: :lol:

This is what you should not see 2 seconds before impact:


The white "buble" is the airbag.

I know what an airbag is... thanks anyway!! But what I want to know is the color of the steering and air bag "cover"... what you press on to honk the horn.... I know the Altezza is grey too, but is it the same tone of grey as ours??

Judging from the pictures, short of the grey inserts, the steering wheel, as well as airbag cover, is very much the same color.

The next question is will the 99' Altezza airbag work with an 02' Is300 computer? First impression would say "of course", yet the 01' and 02-03' airbag part numbers are different.
Why not use the orignal IS300 airbag, provided it fits the steering wheel.
