    I just realized that if all the parts are anodized/painted black, the Logitech stuff might not look so shabby. It's the contrast against the beautiful bare metal that makes them look horrendously ugly (in comparison :D)

    If I remember correctly, pretty much all the parts are adjustable. Including the seat which can be moved towards and away from the wheel so that the correct distance can be achieved. Its just a matter of changing the setup to suit the user.

    You have spent countless hours and ££ (sorry my keyboard doesn't have a euro) on building this amazing piece of engineering, but one question is still left unanswered. Are you any good at driving games?

    I wonder if the seat can be moved forward or backward, just like in a real car. I'm sure he paid attention to the ergo because yes, the steering does look a bit in-the-face.

    You should think about using a Fanatec Wheel maybe. www.fanatec.de
    Would suit your awesome modding much better. :)

    For example:

    Porsche 911 GT3 RS Wheel -Clubsport edition-:

    with
