    AMG F1 Safety Car Steering Wheel for E55 (W211)

    Got it installed on my car as one of the first E55 customers.
    It just came in when I had my car at AMG in Affalterbach.
    When I came back to pick up my car, they installed it as a surprise for me (I just love surprises).
    Great thing to have: it provides more grip and it does look good too. Highly recommendable.

    This is an original AMG product, no aftermarket steering wheel!

    Shifter buttons? They're still in the rear.

    AMG might offer a shifting pad like on the BMW M3 or Ferrari 360 Modena later on because the rear buttons aren't very satisfying, especially when turning the wheel.

    While there, did you meet Domingos Piedade?

    Steering wheel looks great.

    No, I didn't meet Domingos Piedade. And I didn't meet Mr. Bruhnke either. I don't think they are supposed to meet with regular customers.

    But I have a lot of things to report, stay tuned for a detailled report.
    Only one short comment: first class service.

    I know this is a little bit confusing.
    These are only nice metal - and + pins which indicate that the upshift button is on the right and the downshift button is on the left (still behind the wheel).
    I find it strange too but that's how it is.

    RC,
    Thinking about getting one for my C32, I'll post pictures if it happens...I know someone going to Germany soon. I hope they let him bring one or two back.

    Shouldn't be a problem. But I'd make sure that the steering wheels for the C32 are available at that time.
    It seems that even AMG doesn't always have them in stock.
    If you need a contact phone number at AMG for the person going to Germany, please send me a private e-mail.
