Default CF Flat Bottom Steering Wheel

I recently purchased the flat bottom CF steering wheel from an is250 forum member, TommyT. very courteous guy, and smooth sale.

here are two quick cell phone pics:

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!

That was the main reason why I didn't get the steering wheel. Needs an F logo.

I too have this wheel. Feels much better than the stock wheel, IMO the improvement makes up for lack of the F logo. Enjoy!

Agreed.
I love the thickness of the CF, did not expect that.

The think design flat bottom wheels with the F logo but its just too much swirl around the top . and special order take up to 12 weeks. about 1000$ check out Ltuned but it not as thick as the flat bottom wheel like we have.
Click the image to open in full size.
. Also u can get a small F emblem and stick it on , like my previous car

That's looks great. Would this steering wheels still fit MY11 update model as the steering wheel controls have sport button. I would assume it would as the steering wheel is supplied without airbag and controls and you just swap them over

yeah sewell have it, but u have to disconnect your battery to prevent air bag to deploy , also step on your brake for at least 30 seconds to disengage the airbage. Using the small tip of flat head screw driver to open those plastic cover. i used drill gun with magetic tip to unscrew them each side. Ratchet to unscrew the bolt on the steering.
