Yes it will fit your '11 model.
Sewell has an easy DIY to follow, but I'd suggest a steering wheel puller ($15 at an automotive store).

The car has tons of F-logo all over the place. Leave it off, I say. Enjoy the grip.

wheel feels great, curves onto your hands, and the CF is very thick. great improvement over the oem wheel, although I will miss the embedded F logo...i'll get a decal or stiching fabrication done!

Does anyone know if these flat bottom are thicker than the MY11 factory steering wheels? I know they are thicker than the 08/09 models but the MY11 had an upgraded and thicker steering wheel. Just debating wether to get one or not

I love these but have always wondered if the top of the steering wheel has issues with glare or reflections when the sun is beating down on it. The black may not be bad but the white cf with the glossy clear coat sure seems like it would. Any input?

Thought I throw mine on here. I special ordered this one from the vender. I asked them to wrap the bottom and extend the edges a little bit to have more coverage of the carbo fiber.

Looks great too. But personally, I am not a fan of carbon fiber, I simply wanted the wheel for the feel and this particular one was readily available by a private seller.
Plus our car doesn't have actual cf trim, it's a material called texalium

And I cannot comment on the glare matter, because I did not notice anything of the sort yet (which might in effect answer that question).

I actually like the white cf look being both on top of the wheel and on the bottom. It flows a bit more. Just having it at the top to me looks a bit weird. But I still dig the flat-bottom and bolstered hand grips regardless.

This stupid thread is making me reconsider adding this after I intended to cool it with the mods. Grrr.

always glad to negatively influence you

I am in the works of getting an 'F' logo embroidered on the bottom portion like the OEM wheel...

I custom fabricated F logos out of leather. I stitched 2 pieces of leather w/ a stencil.
It looks great on the wheel, haven't officially 3M'd it though.
also looks good on other parts of the car, I'll be sure to post a thread soon.

here are some samples:
