Do you own a CF, Flat Bottom Steering Wheel??

Did you purchase a flat bottom upgraded steering wheel?

1. If you had to do it over - would you still purchase?

2. Was the difference in the way the car felt - more than, about the same or less than what you thought?

Thanks - thinking about purchasing one

This one was only $550, but a little pricey either way I suppose

Yup, if you buy direct from the guy he knocks 50 off

I wasn't familiar with those events until now, i'll take a look into them. I'm ALWAYS down for a good car show.

i too have the dinmann cf flat bottom wheel, i can honestly say it is one of my favorite mods...being 6'5 the bottom of the steering wheel was always hitting my knees when taking agressive turns, this fixed that problem. the increase thickenss and grip are unmatched when compared to the stock wheel, you dont really realize how bad the stock wheel is until you get the dinmann wheel...you will not regret it
