Default F steering wheel is just to thin

I quickly noticed coming from the M3 that our Fs have a skinny steering wheel. I am looking to changes this. The RC F has nice size/feel to it. I was thinking about adding on a layer of leather skin but not sure. The carbon fiber steering is nice but to expensive....Looking for other alternative to my dilemma.

I think they make pumps for that, to make it more girthy.

Installed pics on P. 2. I still luv the wheel. It was made to my specifications. I did not want CF on top.

Yeah they do. I have the second option and it's double the thickness of the oem wheel. Feels so good and thick in between my hands..

I have one and it is definitely thicker than the oem wheel. I've had mine almost a year and it still looks brand new. One of my favorite purchases so far for the F.

Justin, really dig the look of your Momo wheel. Unfortunately, I also love having an airbag, as I had the occasion to use one in the past.
