Whenever possible, we manufacture the harnesses using the original connectors inside the steering wheel, fitted with a snap lock.
Sometimes it is not possible to find these connectors on the market, and we have to resort to generic connectors, which still work well. There is no one-size-fits-all answer, because the policies of the parent companies regarding the guarantee they are not the same for everyone. There are those who are very rigid, but there are also those who are flexible and if the part fitted has no relation to the fault that may occur on the machine, the guarantee remains valid. While other dealerships may decide otherwise.In any case, the steering wheel Spacer can be removed without leaving any traces on the car. As for the homologation, it is not approved for road use.

For countries outside Italy, the laws are different for each country. We have supported individual customers who have sought TÜV approval for their specific vehicle and we are working towards TÜV approval for all of our products, but this will take time.

Does Spacershop only make wheel spacers? The real question they often ask us is: but can you make a living off this? Because the novelty and uniqueness of the product is such that it often raises doubts that we are used to by now, and we must confess that we even amuse ourselves a bit. This company mostly only makes wheel spacers, it was born from this idea, had by chance and which originally was not thought to become a job. It was the enthusiasm and requests of customers from all over the world (we sell 95% abroad) that prompted us to create this company, and we have continued to grow even during the Covid period.
The passion for cars, for driving, for racing, and for the elaboration and development of components, and the people we met along the way have always given new stimuli to expand the range of products we offer, which also extends to products that are not ours but which convinced us so much that we became resellers, such as the OS-Giken limited slip differentials and the lightened Liteblox batteries. Whenever possible, we create new products or experiment with new solutions, some of which then make it to the market, such as paddle shifters. We don't set ourselves creative limits, and we make certain projects just for the pleasure of doing them. The only limits are time and resources, which luckily increase as the company grows.
Over the years, we have seen that many customers change their car and ask us for a steering wheel Spacer for their new car too, and this has always given us confidence in the future.
