Can anyone out there supply me with a boss kit for a leone between the ages of 85 and 88? I have been trying to find one for bloody ages and my efforts have proved unsecessful. I know they r increadibly hard to find hence im looking outside nz.
I need it for my 86 RX Coupe.

"...two countries separated by a common language."

For the rest of us (me???), what do you consider a "boss kit"?

Hey Richard, i got mine (EA81) from Murray Costello cars, over on Lincoln road. They are/were the agents for momo in CHCH. (there are others who you may want to call)
It'll be old stock for them now, but it's worth a phone call.

On a side note, i was under the impression that a Impreza boss kit fitted a EA82? not 100% on that, but it may be worth trying?

Opps, sorry guys, a "boss kit" is the after market steering wheel adaptor here in NZ.

No worries. Certainly easier to say than our "steering wheel adapter".

(In my lexicon, a "boss" is a mounting point on a casting or forging.)

Well - you could try this mob. They have a listing for the EA82 boss. I am unsure if its available or not. Prepare your Swedish Kronas though!

Cost the equivalent of about A$70 before freight.

Lexicon= the Manner that people used to talk between them of the same area, or Friends...

I Think From the Word "Léxico" in Spanish that means that...

Just on that - you might want to check that your wheel fits on that boss kit too.

I thought it had been determined that impreza/legacy aftermarket steering wheel hubs were mechanically compatible with L-series (ea82) cars?
