What's the steering wheel diameter Cam?

Don't have a tape measure here dude. I'll measure it tonight. I think it's about 35cm. It's smaller than a 116 stocker anyway.....

Aren't all 6.9's burl wood? Steering wheel is Zebrano, going to bit a bit miss matched.

So true...

My Burl wheel is gorgeously matching the 690SEL

That wheel is burl wood isn't it Michel?

Would suit another 6.9 down to the T

Absolutely....
I simply want a bigger one... (diameter..)
An original wheel with wood all around

In my opinion if the entire wheel was completely wooded, same style as the factory wheel, just with wooden horn pad and the wheel part.

Yes, like the sport wheel I have now.
I agree

problem with that, which I'm sure MB figured out is that if you don't have your seat belt on or somehow hit your head on the steering wheel, it is going to hurt a lot more on wood than soft leather or plastic.

I NEVER drive without my seat belt..

Yes same here, although I do unbuckle when going into a car park, much to the car's beeping protest, find it easier turning my neck to park, I know I know should use the mirrors,

While parking is OK...
I do the same
