    that looks like the A4 DTM wheel I mentioned on a thread the other day, quite a rare item isn't it?

    Talking

    Yeah its nearly the same wheel although its black alcantara and not the dark grey the dtm one has. Theres a few new ones on ebay at the moment. It looks a lot better in the flesh as on the pics it kinda looks cheap!

    not too sure on the wheel, was just looking at your locost pic and am guessing that the pic is from a sprint at kirkistown?

    its not a bad car just maybe not as quick as it should be, on the rolling road she got to 292bhp and 190mph so on paper it should be quick, but am still learning the car, never raced a ford in my life, had a blue single seater before the noble which i still have in the garage.

    You are odd, how could you like the round wheel over flat bottom wheel, like this RS4 alcanty in Lomax's ride....



    Let me know when you've upgraded the cloth

    I prefer the alcantara bit that locost47 has done to the bit in the centre of the wheel (the OEM bit). In the days when the S3 first launched I saw one in a dealers with a standard wheel and it was gash. I don't really like standard Audi steering wheels much. The one in the S5 is poor.

    THANKS!! Thats made me feel better! I got it because of the increased grip and it looks a hell of a lot better in the flesh and I got it for less than half the price of a flat bottomed one!

    The thing is, its the same thickness as the leather one I had but when I saw the photos I thought, Holy S*^T that looks like a kids sponge! Its no softer than the leather one but the photos dont show the shape as they would a leather wheel... Thinking of changing the interior to half leather - alcantara in the summer to match the wheel, S3 Skirts, maybe facelift front then 18" or maybe 19" BBS CH or CSL reps although im not sure if they do an Audi fitment in the CSl ones and finally a remap although I doubt it will give the same kick as the S2000
