Default Show Me your Nardi Deep Corn (or other aftermarket wheels) and what Hub you used

Hey guys. Im looking to get a Nardi Deep Corn for my 04. I have found a great deal on some 350mm (edit*)perforated leather w/red stitching models... and I DESPISE the stock wheel in my 04 sti....

My car also has Recaro seats, so an aftermarket wheel would fit nice.

I know Nardi's require an adapter to use many of the aftermarket hubs out there, and I know quick releases usually put the steering wheel pretty close to the driver.

Im curious to see some good, full view shots of what seating positions are like with aftermarket wheels, particularly a Nardi Deep Corn. My Recaro's have me sitting pretty low, Im only 5'11", so I may raise them up, but I think I would like the smaller, 330mm wheel, as opposed to the larger 350mm. Im open to grievances with that decision too. I just want to see what my arm extension is going to be like, compared with my ass in the seat and reaching the pedals.

Anyone have some good pictures?

I have a 350mm deep corn in mine. Ill take pics later. It's a little weird at first with the deep corn but you get used to it. I tried my buddies flat 330mm and hated it.

Bump to the top. Im wondering Where a Nardi Deep Corn 350mm would sit in relation to the stock wheel?

I would really like to have a quick release, but I could live without if I could keep the steering wheel within an inch of the stock position

edit* ive decided to get a 350 as opposed to a 330 after reading some complaints about functionality

Where does yours sit in relation to the stock steering wheel? what hub are you running? do you run a quick release?

It's a NRG slim hub on a v2 quick release. It's definitely closer then the stock wheel, how much, I couldn't tell you. That being said, get a flat wheel. Much more comfortable. You could always do without the quick release.

Using the deep 350mm Prodrive Steering wheel and a Sparco hub placed the steering wheel in almost the exact same spot as the factory unit. I didn't need to adjust my seat or even adjust the steering column.
