    Quick question about flat bottom steering wheel ?

    Does anyone know if my standard sized disklock (small size) will works OK with my new S3 which will have a flat bottom steering wheel - or does the flat part allow enough movement to allow the disklock to be manovered off ?

    And does it really mark the steering wheel - as never noticed this before in 5 + years of using my disklock ?

    Cheers

    Richard

    I too have the flat bottomed wheel, I"ve also got a disklock, although I'm not sure what size it is. I can squeeze it down onto the smallest size clip before I lock it if that helps. There's no way you could lever the lock off with out causing considerable damage. It used to mark the wheel, well leave yellow paint flakes on it, but I've lined it with felt and it's OK now.

    I have a small disclock and flat bottomed wheel and it fits fine, i am not aware of any marking and the flat bottom does not make it any easier to remove.
