I'm daft. Why suede wheel?
Also: mismatched seats. Come on.
This is how the car came:
The wheel adjusts for reach, but not for rake - in the picture it's as far out as it can go.
Due to where the pedals are, and the height of the wheel, my left leg was trapped between the steering wheel and the lower centre console - I would literally punch myself in the leg when turning left. I couldn't move the seat back any further in order to get my legs underneath the wheel as then I could not reach said wheel. I could not adjust the wheel up, as the column doesn't adjust for rake.
I then deleted the lower centre console:
This was better, as my leg wasn't trapped between two objects, but it meant that I was still driving like John Wayne, and after around 60 minutes my left buttock went to sleep. This meant that I had to stop and do some stretching until (with fiery pins and needles) I got half my arse back.
So I replaced the wheel with the GT3 Cup edition Momo:
This is a heavily dished wheel, which moves it toward the driver, it's also smaller in diameter - which was a revelation, as I could get my legs underneath it, and retain sensation in both buttocks whilst driving. However, this focussed attention on the seat, as my eyeline meant that I could not see the top of the clocks.
I fitted an eccentric spacer which brought the wheel out 10mm and up 15mm, which helped, then I had the seat cushion scalloped, which also helped, but it wasn't perfect.
Enter the BBI seat base and the Recaro SPG:
Which finally dropped me low enough in the car that I could see the clocks perfectly - and, for the first time, out of the rear window. To get any lower I'd need to bolt the seat directly to the floor, but thankfully that's not required as I'm now very happy with my driving position.
I can rest my wrist on the top edge of the steering wheel with my shoulders flat to the seatback, and I drove to Morzine from Rambouillet in perfect comfort last year.
