J's Racing Carbon Steering Wheel

After seeing this fitted to David's car ..There's been a bit of renewed interest in the Awesome J's Racing Steering Wheel :)

Half Carbon , half high quality leather this is the ultimate luxury item..and I must say..I want to trade my suede/leather J's wheel for one..man its handsome!!

These come in at £ 599+vat and are special order from Japan - However is theres some good interest I can have a word in Mr J's shell like and see if I can swing a group buy price .

I can either get it on my next seafreight shipment or if you just cant wait ..we can EMS it direct from J's (this option does cost ..although its pretty reasonable so just ask!)

Pictures below show the wheel as it comes and once fitted to Davids Car .

Not the cheapest mod avaliable so no smart comments please ..As always my threads are there to let you know that this stuff is avaliable ;)

Is it me or does the leather seem to not sit flush on the edge of the steering wheel? Just one pic from that angle could be the culprit :D

Is it as good quality as the OEM steering wheel leather? Which I reckon is quite decent...

For the person who has EVERYTHING (Dave) a great mod!

Its just the angle the picture is taken. The quality of leather on J's (and the stitching) is far better than OEM in my opinion!

Came across some more info on the steering wheel on the J's USA website:

Uncompromised 350mm

J's Racing "Sport Steering Series" was created with ease of use and excellent gripping feel as the top priority after gathering enormous data on the actual racing and test runs.

The optimum gripping feel is realized by improving the shortcomings of the stock steering wheel like "weak grip" and "uncomfortable grip" with the emphasis on the confidence.
The well though out steering shape minimizes a sense of fatigue even at a long endurance race and the driver can feel its considerable benefit on a long street driving.
The diameter of the steering wheel is set at 350mm compared to the stock size of 365mm.

Please note that the smaller diameter might reduce the visibility of the gauges and might change the accessibility to blinker and wiper control.

Compatible with the stock air bag

The sport steering is compatible with all the Honda stock parts from the SRS module (air bag), paddle shifter, to the audio & navigation switches. It can be recommend to any customer who felt uneasiness on the conventional aftermarket steering wheel.

* this steering wheel does not add the paddle shift capability on the vehicle originally without the paddle shift.
* the air bag installment could be dangerous and has to be performed by an experienced mechanic.

Superior Italian leather

The high-grade Italian leather is used as the material. Furthermore, for a better breathing the punched (air) leather is utilized on the constant contact area (9 and 3 o'clock area). A buckskin model is also available which provide a perfect fit for the drives with driving
gloves.
A carbon model is made of twilled carbon. Our carbon model presents a great harmony between competitiveness and luxury.
