Sport Steering Wheel

Just amended my order in include the sport steering wheel. After comparing side by side, I think it is a real improvement in looks and feel over the std. wheel, and at $250 it is a bargain. Car is scheduled as a Jan/Feb build w/a March or April delivery...just in time for Spring.

...and feel"

Can one truly say the sport wheel "looks" better?

And it's only a bargain, because everything else on the spec sheet is so ridiculously overpriced. I'm quite sure the wheel is no more expensive to make.

I'm not berating your choices, to each his own, I just have to laugh every time I see another example of Porsche screwage. When I drove the Z4M I noticed that the sport wheel is nicer, and standard, and has control buttons, same with my Merc 350SLK.

Good choice. I didn't think it would matter much, but now that I have it (bought my Box from inventory so it just came with it) I really like how it feels -- especially the parts where it gets fatter right above your thumbs.
