PART NUMBER: 61-2773
Fits 2006-2015 Mazda Miata NC.
Finally, a steering wheel upgrade with wonderful feel that does not require removal of the airbag! Upscale Euro-Hand Stitched. Cipher Auto steering wheels are designed with the best comfort, quality and styling in mind. Premium leather.
NEW 2021 updated design has more thickness for better feel, a flatter bottom, and slightly more thumb curvature at the 3 o'clock and 9 o'clock posiions. We had the old version of this wheel in our turbo NC, and the first prototype of the new updated version went in that same car (pics of wheel with red stitching and center stripe are the new model), and our feeling here is it is an overall improvement and refinement on an already great upgrade for the NC! The old version was a little thinner than we wanted and didn't have quite enough shape to it, but this new model gets all those details just right. A must-do upgrade to your NC... as soon as you drive with it you'll wonder how you ever lived so long with the basic, old, deteriorating factory steering wheel!
Real premium leather
Thicker for better grip
Compatible with all packages/trim models of NC with switches on the steering wheel.

In Cipher Auto's words:
"Besides offering extraordinary sensation through the ergonomic technology, individual will also enjoy the superior comfort, holding power and visual satisfaction in every driving experience. Definitely, it will surpass what the OEM can offer in many folds."

AFTER: Much more meaty grip, looks great and feels great.
First photos of the carbon fiber options are IN! See Below.
The REAL carbon fiber steering wheel below has a matte finish on the carbon, red stitching on the leather, and no center stripe:
There is also a Hydro-Dipped carbon fiber look with a gloss finish, red stitching on the leather, and a red center stripe. This version is NOT real carbon fiber; hydro dipping is essentially a printed "look" done on a smooth surface, but with the gloss over the top of it it looks quite similar to real carbon fiber, and comes in at the same price as the other all-leather models:
INSTALLATION NOTE: We recommend applying a little grease to the splines of the new steering wheel before sliding it on to the splines of the steering column. WD-40 works well.
I am trying to keep my Miata as close to original as possible, but still make some small enhancements. So, when my wife stated my steering wheel was looking pretty ratty, I started to look into an OEM one. A lot of the Miata forums recommended upgrading to the Cipher wheel. When I saw Good-Win had them on sale, I jumped on it. They shipped it right away and it came well boxed and in good shape. Following a YouTube, the old wheel was off, the controls changed out, and the new wheel in place. The wheel looks great and still looks like if belongs in the car. Super happy.
Got the gloss carbon fiber-look with red stripe and love it! Really feels like I'm driving a different car and looks like an exotic! Very pleased.
This was a piece of cake to install with a 1/2 impact, I was able to paint all three plastic tabs red to match the interior/exterior. It feels AMAZING to drive with, significantly better than modern premium vehicles. Lights up my interior with the modern look. Heavy price but certainly worth it.
I hope this passes for a compliment. The steering wheel is such a âright fit" that you almost don't notice it as a âcool upgrade." It just looks like it belongs. Super quality. Every bit a âfactory fit & finish" aftermarket item. Well done. Again. I'm pleased, again.
I have been waiting for this steering wheel for a long time. The original was the only thing making the miata look older than it should. Installation was a little nerve racking, but not that bad. I made it harder than it really is. ( You do not need to disassemble the button pods at all. ) It has given new life to the car, even better. The human in the drivers seat us very happy.
Take pictures along the way and go slow.
Simply amazing. The pictures on the site look like a great improvement over the terrible steering wheel Mazda put in this car. Turns out, the pictures are absolutely rubbish. My steering wheel looks and feels 10x better than what I thought I was getting. I have been posting pictures all over various Facebook pages to show it off. The one improvement it could use, is finer splines. The factory splines are finer and more in number. Having fewer splines makes it much harder to get the wheel perfectly straight.
I have had this steering wheel installed on my Miata for two years, and absolutely love it! Cipher used my car to film the install video, and it seemed very straight forward. The quality of the leather is top notch and it has held up very well with mostly top down driving in my daily commuter. So glad to hear that Goodwin is carrying it. One of the best upgrades I made to my car! You wont be sorry!
