Carbon Fiber/Leather steering wheel from DSV

Well here's some up close and personal pictures of my DSV steering wheel. As some of you know, I was selling some ACE steering wheels for a promotion for Camaro5Fest. ACE changed the deal on me after lying about my wheel being made, so I decided to cut my losses. INDpower asked how he could help and I ended up ordering a wheel through DSV instead. I'm glad I was screwed over because now I have not only a better made steering wheel, but I have a carbon fiber accent as well.

Thanks for Jon and Gerardo from DSV for helping my spice up my interior a little bit. Jon's service was A+ and he was very prompt with returning the few calls I made if he wasn't able to pick up. I'm hoping to have enough money to afford some more goodies from DSV at a later date.

It's really true, you get what you pay for. The leather on this wheel is top notch. I can see why they charge a premium for their products. Well worth it!

Very shiny. I tried looking at this thread on the iPhone and lets just say that didn't happen.

Did they change the thickness/profile any, or did they just re-cover a stock wheel? I would love one of those, but the stock rim profile is really messed up. I would like the cross section to be round, instead of the weird flattened oval shape.

Thanks for the kind words J and it looks awesome in your car.

We did not change the profile. The steering wheel has a wire frame and we do not like to modify that to much for accident purposes. We do offer a flat bottom with thicker sides.

I am glad you got to see our product first hand. A lot of people have a hard time understanding the quality we offer and I am glad you had the chance to see it. We offer a lot of other items other than the wheel for your car.

Thanks for helping him install it, it looks great in his car.

It feels like the wheel is stock, just with different materials. The leather might add 1-2 mils but I don't feel any difference.

I had to use a steak knife and just made a small incision and pushed the pin back in. It's not 100% set in there, but it's in there enough. I'll be getting some glue and using a clamp or something to get it to fit like it did on the factory wheel.

Gotcha. Cool! Didn't know how it was attached to the wheel. It's nice to know if I upgrade my wheel I can still attach the SS.

Very nice job! How easy was the replacement? It looks like it took a bit more work than I'm able to do.. Nice product, however I'm not sure how I feel about the color or the carbon fiber. Is there any other versions of this wheel; what is the pricing like on this? Would appreciate it if you could help me out and answer these questions, as I'm considering replacing mine as well!
