You know I've been staring at the STi steering wheel for a while and let me say: I'm unimpressed. IMO I believe the steering wheel from my '03 wrx was both better looking and felt better.

I want to get everyone else's opinion on this issue because I'm seriously thinking of swapping the thing for an old '03 wrx steering wheel. Maybe get a matching momo shift knob. Whadda ya think?

I have been considering the idea of painting the entire STi steering wheel black. I think it would look a lot better if it was just one color, :)

I think comfort/use wise, it is equal to the WRX stocker, no better no worse.

Is it a MOMO steering wheel? I didn't think so. I would expect it to have a huge MOMO logo if it were but I could be wrong.

Anyway I never said it was bad just that I was unimpressed. It looks kinda tacky. I just don't like the grey plastic thing. Not that I think it can be changed, I'm sure its the best material to put there considering there is an airbag underneath. However, I think the WRX steering wheel just looked nicer, didn't have as much of a cheap feeling to it as the STi steering wheel.

This is a matter of looks mostly and quality. I noticed that on the back side of the STi steering wheel there is some loose steering wheel leather.

Are the WRX and STi wheels the same diameter? I could have sworn someone told me the STi was smaller, which I personally prefer.

That's not exactly a good thing considering how unimpressive the thing is. You would expect a MOMO steering wheel to stand out. This steering wheel looks and feels very average. :-?

Hey stiperformance. Do you or anybody else know where I can get that steering wheel you've just pictured?

That is the best steering wheel I have ever seen. Sparco also has an electronically displayed steering wheel but nothing like that.

Nevermind I found it. Its called the ThStack ST8600 Steering Wheel Dash System. That electronic display goes for $2700. lol.

Gotta get me one of those in the future.

The regular WRX momo wheel feels like your driving a bus compared to the STi

The STi wheel is a couple inches smaller in diameter verses the wrx wheel. I would take the sti wheel in a heart beat but the only disadvantage is that its a little harder to drive with your knees ;)
