Pics please, I've been meaning to do this for a while and your colour combo would suit my car. Is it still around £150?

Price was £150 + 10 return postage.

I covered the cost of sending the wheel to them.

I am looking for the pic on FB but after spending 5 mins with the search function I can't find it due to the vast amount of waffle on there.

A pic up here would be much appreciated.
Thanks.

Edit - thanks for the pic, nice wheel (& legs!)

Well - it arrived today! Really pleased with it and now leaves me wondering what to do - when you old the OEM wheel off the car you realise what a nice bit of kit it is....

Scored a bit of a bargain too...

I've always thought the original wheel was a little skinny, but have you noticed any reduction in steering feel with the thicker rim? Does look nice by the way.

Will tell you once it goes on the car! Off to get it done this afternoon

I have done this previously on 2 911 Turbo steering wheels and the only change I noticed was positive - I don't like the skinny wheels personally

And fitted....

(Thanks to Paul at Northway)

Already had an offer for the old wheel but undecided at present if I will keep it to go back to original if I ever sell the car

There is another guy on ebay (Jason) who does this and also a thickened version.
I have one of his wheels on my RS4 and its great. Good to deal with as well.

Coming to the 996 from a 968 club sport steering wheel (which I still believe was "perfection"), the 996 is just a tad too skinny until rewrapped just a couple of mm thicker...….

I did briefly have a Techart wheel in the car (briefly was less than an hour!) - felt horrible, diameter too small, rim far too thick - very easy to ruin the feel of the whole car by going to thick on the rim(!)
