New Steering Wheel

What's up fellas, finally got my steering wheel after nearly 9 weeks of patiently waiting! Made by Taw Customs out of Chicago - forged carbon fiber and alcantara leather. Some of the best money I've spent on the car!

Also threw on some downpipes and charge + J pipes as I'm running bm3 stg 1.

I do like it, but my OCD would dictate that I change out the interior CF trim to match it lol!

How much does a custom steering wheel like that run if you don't mind sharing?

Different for sure. You should get your trim to match the marble steering wheel.

This is what you get after you defeat all the other Instagram custom steering wheel companies.

When ordering it I had the same worry that since the forged carbon doesn't match the regular, it will look off. I've had the wheel for about 2 weeks now and honestly I love how it stands out in the interior.

That looks awesome, but I drive with my hand on top of the wheel at least 50% of the time. I couldn't imagine not having that space there - I need to try driving a car with one. Maybe that will change my mind..

My. God.

The reason why a race car would have this type of steering wheel is because the steering rack can go full lock while keeping both hands on the wheel.

This is the stupidest mod I've ever seen for a street car.
