Has anyone seen the perf wheel with tri-color stitching with cutouts for either the step or DCT paddles? I'm sure it's just a matter of time before it's available.

Got my wheel kit today! The tri-stitched wheel looks gorgeous! It looks smaller too.

I'll post some pics Sunday night.

+1 The DCT paddles are quite different from the step paddles, both in terms of physical feel but also the detent. For me, it was like getting a new car all over again. Well, almost!

DCT paddles "click". and maybe it's psychological but I feel like it shifts faster. like the wiring is done so it's shifting the instant we click the paddles.

I really like the new tri-stitch wheel congrats! Did you ditch the step paddles somehow? I'm assuming you may have had the paddles on the stock sport wheel you switched out?

LOL. Good idea. Can't go wrong with that.

While I'm at it, I'll post another pic of the wheel.

And not only that, I feel like the steering is so much better and more solid than before.

where is everyone getting their steering wheels?

tischer seems to have the perforated wheel for $385 which seems to be the cheapest.

for the tri-stitched, ebay seems to have them for $320+$60 shipping from some guy in Sweden. anyone bought from this guy and is the steering wheel genuine? the rim doesn't look too thick in his pictures...

You can re-use your airbag if you have the sports airbag (ie sports package). If not you'll need to buy a new one.

I bought my set from this guy from Ebay. You can't go wrong going with Tischer either. The price difference is not so much so you might as well get it from them.
