will flat-top be difficult to turn for sharp turn or u-turn?

I don't see how the flat top one would be any different for doing a U-turn or sharp maneuvering vs the rounded top one. I'd pick the flat top just because it's less material to block your view of the road.

I'd run B in my 2017. But manufacturers haven't caught up yet. Still waiting for a new grille for the '17s too :(

@bball what company are you working with/considering, please (link would be terrific). Thank you.

Most race cars do not even have a top part to their steering wheel, so if good enough for a pure race car, get what you personally would like best.

I'd like to get one but I don't think the switches would work with the 2017 since they're designed differently.

Just more of a waiting game :p

On a race car you have full lock in less than one steering wheel rotation so no need for top or bottom. Not sure how a flat top wheel would feel when the wheel reverses from a quick sharp turn as I let the wheel slide back to neutral though my loose grip.

Please do a review of it and post more pics, I'm definitely interested in this but wanna see a review first hand. Can't justify spending $400 on a Corksport steering wheel but this seems to be a nice compromise

Just got it yesterday from the courier..
will install it this weekend and share again the review.
at the moment, the steering wheel feels good.
thicker than original and it feels more solid.

It's done over the weekend.
It fits perfectly well and the grip is better than original.

Wonder how much of a hassle it would be to get one of those over here in the States
do you guys have any agent over there to help bring stuff from China?
if yes then it would be easier, if not you will need Alipay for the online purchasing.

I'd probably have to do the Alipay or something, probably gonna be one of those things I look into a bit later down the line. Thanks for the info on this though!
