    Which Steering wheel?

    I've been looking into steering wheels, and I have found two that I really like, but can"t decide between. So with all of your infinite panther wisdom, which one do you like better?

    Option 1:

    Grant 452 Club Sport



    I really like the grip style of this one (It looks better in person) and its 50 dollars more than the other

    Option 2:

    Grant 457 Club Sport



    The center section of this is like sex! I'm not the biggest fan of the grip though, but it is 50 dollars cheaper.

    So, option 2 or Option 2

    Im not a huge fan of either, they don't seem like they would fit with the interior, but its your car so do what you would like. If I had to choose one it would be the first one.

      lol, the one that I really wanted that would match the interior nicely would have cost in the neighborhood of 450 dollars. I don"t mind spending money on the car, but that is just insane.

        Ha yeah that is a bit ridiculous for a round object meant for holding. I love my stock wheel, It's still got lots of cushion left. Fortunately for you your car is older, and its a vic, so you could get away with those wheels more than I could. My wheel is a beast.

                  Leaning towards the 457. Not a big fan of the style of either but the center section on the 457 is what does it for me.

                            I don't think there is a pic of it anymore, but he cut holes in his dash and put them underneath the speedometer. Let me see if I can find that, or if I can make an example
