:cool: Very nice! It looks a tad on the small side. I'd really like a smaller wheel, I think it makes a huge difference to the driving experience.

It does.
Years ago when Fast Car was a proper car mag it did a series of tests on handling.
1) Lowered
2) Wider tyres
3) Smaller s/wheel
The smaller steering wheel gav ethe biggest gains over a pre set handling course.

Can i be rude and ask where from and how much, you don't have to be precise, jus could do with a ballpark figure!? it's the exact same one i want in the suede, but can only find it places in the leather!????

cheers,
phill.

OMP bosses are normally the cheapest, bout 25 but a lot of places, inc DT only stock momo! They're the same bolt pattern as omp and sparco but cost bout 35!You could try raldes.co.uk (rally designs) as they are normally cheap if you want omp stuff!

Nice :cool: but small. :eek:

I normally use a 320-330mm wheel, std wheel is a real 'mare. :(

took it out on a drive today, but wasnt really pushing due to wet roads and the back end being really twitchy atm...

feels really nice, more responsive... parking and manuvering can be a bit of a pain tho :D

ppl at work now say its looking like a proper rallye car... amazing what a steering wheel does! rofl

Trecento 300mm

always wondered what trecento meant :P just be cautious as suede or alcantara really picks up dirt easily, dont ever drive with dirty hands or let the mechanics at your garage do the same...

Halfords interior brush, nice and stiff, should help :)

My brush doesn't seem to do much - the bits round where I hold it have gone smooth and crusty after a couple of long drives :(

Anyone else get black hands too?

i went too small with the s/wheel in my punto. cant see the dials properly which is a pain in the arse. its so bad for parking as well due to the lack of power steering and larger wheels, i once had to park up a 15 min walk away from where i wanted to be cos the space i tried to get in that was pretty near was just too tough on my arms after id bin to the gym :(

why do Peugeot use big wheels as standard?

economies of scale from other models?

comfort?

So they can use faster steering racks and still sell them to old people and women.

I want a smaller wheel now... Not gonna be able to afford one for a while though.
