    I got them from a member on here. Had them laying about for a while. Haven't plucked up the courage to pry off my originals yet. Very permanent when it done. Apparently a lot of cracking and the like on removal.

    Was it not standard on the FL 8P S3?

    Nope.
    It's the shape that makes the optical illusion. Wheel is also thicker than oem one

    Ah fair enough mate, was scratching my head for a while.

    So is it a completely custom wheel or is it just modified to be thicker?

    Complete custom made.
    Flat bottom made and all thickened with thumb grips and leather+alcantara+red stitching.

    Here they are side by side, oem and oem custom.[​IMG]

    Thought it looked really different to mine, mine seems smaller, shorter and the flat bottom seems longer

    I think it looks good, but maybe just a little odd without the round airbag which the flat bottoms have.

    It comes as a blank carcass. My switch gear and airbag fit to it.

    Nice looking wheel.
    It does look much better with round airbag.

    I'm getting used to holding mine.
    So far been driving it less than a hand full of times but those thumbs grips are really good.

    Wheel is a bit slippery atm and hope it is due to brand new materials.
    Always liked the wheel to just slide on the bottom of my palm, when turning it one hand.
    Now my hand just slips off so either use both hands (safer) or thumb grips.

    Also, thicker feel in your palm have to grow on me more.

    Still like it tho

    Well it's on, and it's even better looking in the flesh fitted. Well chuffed. Just wondering if anyone knows if I could use a spray sealer like you use on shoes to waterproof them. Example of what I'm on about below. To seal the red stitching from staining.

    Use some Gyeon Q2 Leather coat. It'll protect the leather and do the stitching as well.

    It's the exact same S3 carcus with more girth all round, with more accentuated curves.
