Default The view doesn't get much better...

The Nardi wheel is an improvement - not too sure about the fake Rolex sticker on the clock though.

Trust me, you'd have to be a dwarf to be able to have that view with the small steering wheel

God I hate "Wank factor" lol

Rolex sticker? Sheesh!

Why not a Tag Huer sticker to go with the sports theme!

I doubt it's a sticker and more likely it was re-screenprinted. Rolex aren't made in Germany anyway.... Maybe the owner should've done some more research?

I still like it but!!!

BTW that non-adjustable steering column is so damn annoying!!!
