I recently bought a momo gotham at kakimotor...trusted them as they claimed that they are the sole distributor of Momo Italy. However upon installation I saw that the momo writing written on the bottom spoke was offset to the right and the laser engraving of the word momo behind the steering wheel was also offset till the marking was partially off the steering. Being a reputable brand such as momo I found it difficult that they would have such bad QC. I was wondering if this are the signs that this steering is a fake?

prices...ori brand nu about rm500

other than the momo stamp behind and the offset momo print in the front...the build quality is really gorgeous. I guess it should be ori coming from them. Anyhow thanks for the input. We should start a thread on this. At least eveyone can refer when getting a new momo.

maybe the number u saw is not serial number, its model number...then its logic to be same...but serial number i not sure got or not...anyway authentic and fake/replica can see the quality and the material...quite obvious..especially funny funny font n engraving so on....

Saw a few at brothers also but then seems like some is ori and some not. Some cheap some real expensive up to RM800 - RM1000 also
got, not only MOMO, other brands as well.

So kinda hard to see which is ori also nowadays...since Brothers do sell local made headlamps as well. Not original from manufacturers

those at brothers confirmed all 100% immitation.
Imitations that can reach up to that price? damn!
But not all the stuffs there is imitations right bro?

Dunno man, most of the Lala and Ah Bengs stuff that we can see on the road seems brothers
are selling most of them.

Not much shops like this where we can shop for almost anything..only ENEOS and BROTHERS.

brothers mostly sell fake momo's la. if u want ori go to kakimotor or N1....
if on a budget like me, there's always halfcut shop, plenty of it....
Thanks bro, looking to replace something new for my gf's kelisa, since her OEM steering
got some peeled off when we bought the car. Yet i hate the horn at both ends.
Is like some kind of F1 like button but just horn instead at both ends :rofl:

Will check out half cut shops. Cuz looking for kelisa tail lamp as well.

Brothers sell local made RM58, I ask from sparepart shops selling RM35 while Original is RM125
per piece.

So, gonna check out for daihatsu Lica Tail lamps instead at half cut if it is gonna be RM125.
I can get a pair.

but halfcut how to identify ori or fake bro Danz?

get the momo with woodtrim from l9 la...but test it 1st make sure can fit,
cos some say the l6/l9 ones cannot fit into kelisa/kenari cos the steering rack is different. but anyways give
it a try 1st. rm250-300.

normally halfcut is all ori. look at the momo engraving & stitches.

Prefer pure black ones, wood trim makes it look uncle and doesn't match the car color.
For half cut also quite pricey wor

For me normal good looking ones will do, never like walnut design. Just weird in a K-Car. Not even
premium cars. Will check out those half cut shops and see.

no need to get the steering with tiptronic function, get the normal ones enuf, but
quite hard to find compared with the wood trim ones.
Woodtrims one were selling at RM300+?

If hard to find, I might as well call up this guy.
