Disklok

Guys, is anyone using a Disklok on their steering wheel?

I'm wondering if they fit around the steering wheel okay when you have Paddle Shifts.

I have one on my 335d.Its a size small and says that it fits steering wheels up to 39cm.
It's fitted to an Msport steering wheel and rotates nicely(shouldn't be a tight fit).
It had never damaged or left any marks on the leather and doesn't foul anything.
Hope that helps...

I also have one on mine and it does fit okay with the paddle shifts.

It has left a slight mark on the front of the steering wheel at the top though. I've bought some pipe insulation just to give it some more protection.

Good idea, think I'll do the same.

I would have thought so. Might be worth checking just in case it can be removed without too much difficulty by the low-lifes.

Remember that the disclock comes with a three stage locking mechanism.This allows you to give a bit more space around the steering wheel.Mine is on stage 2.
If you go too big,it defeats the whole purpose and can be easily removed with a bit of levering-up to you guys.
I think Halfrauds let you try the different sizes before you buy(from somewhere else!)

Small is definitely the right size, I measured the M sport steering wheel as 37cm. I also have it on stage 2 (middle slot).

I'll get some pics for you mate. I managed to get the mark out but don't want it happening again.

Tesco-direct are doing these for 52.48 (25% off), still quite expensive but cheaper than anyone else I think.

And you can collect them from your local Tesco, so no delivery fee.

Here's some pics of the pipe insulation (sorry for the iPhone quality)...





Was 90p from B&Q for about 1m.

The disklok fits a lot tighter now and that's on the first setting.

I ordered some padded foam strips which are coming tomorrow which I will be placing along the edges.

Thanks for the tip - good idea, I'm gonna nip into my loft and pinch a piece of lagging off one of the pipes.
