Moving the steering wheel closer by any other means than factory fitted reach adjustment would change airbag deployment area and therefore make vehicle unroadworthy and ADR non compliant.


Not advised

Have a look at how close the seat can be positioned to the steering wheel. I don't think ADRs are too concerned about "too close". I suspect the OP is more concerned that when the seat is a comfortable distance from the pedals, and the seat back is set to a comfortable rake, the steering wheel is too far away.

Perhaps the OP is particularly tall?

Air bags are designed to go off and already start deflating as the driver hits the bag. They are designed to operate within an envelope of operation, and having the wheel too close will cause the driver to possible hit the bag before deflation starts, causing abrasion burning or whiplash.


Just offering input from my professional knowledge.
