Put this on myself for $55 a few years ago and still looks like new.
Transforms the feel of the wheel, especially if you drive for six hours a day.

All those colors and just chose black.

Who ask to feel somebody's wheel? That's just plain odd.. I hope you're not the guy I saw on tv with an automobile fetish humping people bumpers, are you?

This world is getting stranger and stranger....

so is the only difference between an m sport and alcantara is the thickness? does this extra thickness provide benefits?

please don't take this thread 100% serious -_-

- That grey color it comes with doesn't look good IMO. Black is much better.
- Brand-new, it's like sex for your hands

OP...don't be sad...almost no one responded appropriately when I wanted them to measure their dipsticks. I felt like mine was too long. Fortunately, Billy Ray responded and I knew I was right. I wasn't going to go through the operation though...that was just too much.

Bet you been getting a lot of PMs, right?

It's not about length. It's all about how you use it.
