Even people who will tell you that the one in the Porsche box is magically different admit that it has the same markings on the back - because Aitwe made them all).

I bought a few replacement horn assemblies from, if memory serves, lenkendradshop.de on Ebay.de, who also stocked the horn pads and the screws. However, that web site doesn't seem to be live any more - and I see no Aitwe parts listed on eBay - eine der größten deutschen Shopping-Websites currently.

Aitwe is owned by RAID now; it's fairly hard work to buy parts through them, as they apparently can't readily look up part #'s for their own products... So, although they tried to help, I ended up buying all the screws, horn pads, horn rings etc. elsewhere. The RAID website Tuning r.d.i. Webshop doesn't seem to list any Aitwe parts at all now...
OK, just in case anyone else goes looking for spares for an Aitwe wheel, I figured out my brain fart above: the website is actually lenkradshop.de http://lenkradshop.de, I bought parts from them both via Ebay and direct, and they were very helpful.

They offer some Aitwe parts (lenradzubehor?) that don't seem to be available from FVD, like:

Hub adaptors for many cars (lenradnaben): Atiwe - Lenkradshop.de

Complete horn pads (prallkissen) Atiwe Leder Prallkissen horn pad - Lenkradshop.de

Aitwe screw kits (lenradschrauben) Atiwe - Lenkradshop.de

Straight (10.5cm) and eccentric (4cm) hub spacers (Nabenverlängerung): Spacer / Verlängerungen - Lenkradshop.de

And there's a 10mm eccentric on a different page that looks like the one more commonly seen: Atiwe Exzenterring ATI - 403 10mm - Lenkradshop.de

And of course, the horn ring that started this thread: Atiwe Indianapolis Formel Hupentaster 27923 - Lenkradshop.de

As well as complete Aitwe Formel 360 wheels Atiwe - Lenkradshop.de

(these are all current production Aitwe wheels, note the coarser grain, more matte finish and the seam up the front of the bottom spoke - just like the current Techquipment wheels from Porsche, in fact).

Best to be sitting down when you look at some of the prices...
