I do recommend this mod but only if you have the money to burn as pricing as gone up exceedingly. Even I can't imagine how much I paid for this wheel but oh well its in the past now and I am happy

Kanundrum,

did they have that in stock? or did you have them order it for you?
What did you do with the old one?

I ordered it from the UK, the stock TurboX Wheel is for sale in the for sale forum but someone has inquired about it already.

LOL It wont even be that much. A lot of the stuff I got insurance to pay for because parts were not on order and in stock etc.

So

It's always nice when a crappy situation works out like that. It also explains a little. I don't know if I could stomach buying all those trim pieces. They look beautiful but boy are they expensive!
