Lightbulb Should I go with the flat bottom CF wheel or OEM F-Sport?

We've logged almost 50k miles on her car over the past couple years and the car has stayed relatively stock for the most part.

Got a chance to try out a new custom steering wheel which is both thicker and a bit more meaty and debating what to do....the carbon fiber feels really nice and has a molded in grip but I'm worried her rings will scratch the CF finish

Wheel is built to m3 spec thickness and looks sharp

I like the one on the right but having the F-Sport emblem is nice, so it's a toss up. I would like the flat bottom since I'm a tall guy and that might make it easier for me getting in and out.

I like both! Do you have CF trim inside to match the other wheel? If so, then I'd go with the 2nd choice.

Will either one cost you more $$$?

If not...I'd go right. If you were going to go through all the trouble with removing the wheel in the first place, might as well replace it with something ELSE no one else is going to have.

IF however you had to purchase the right wheel and you already had the left wheel installed, then choosing the right one doesn't make logical sense.

The wheel on the right costed me $600 so looks like I will just keep my F-sport wheel and sell this one.

Car is just not modded enough to need such a wheel.

Interesting. So you purchased the wheel without the intention of putting it on? Sounds as if this will be your 3rd set of steering wheel. Not making sense to me since that $600 could of gone to a set of better tires instead.
