Yeah I had the blackwood, didnt realize it was a 2k option. I ended up having it made into carbon overseas for more sportier look

The wheel is slightly thicker than the oem steering wheel and as well as grippyer (for lack of a better word lol) because of the design and groves. There were a few vendors on the forum that used to carry the wheels. If you need help finding one shoot me a pm

It was very crazy indeed, was reminiscing through all my old pictures. It was so hard to choose the pictures I wanted to post too because I just have so many. I will be attending the Pursuit . Wekfest got bumped to the weekend after
