I have to say I am a car lover and used car dealer. I have test driven thousands of vehicles over the past 7 years and I have to say the 2012 Si steering wheel is by far my favorite. I love everything about it. The leather, the way it feels in my hand and also the smaller diameter of the wheel itself. A CLEAR advantage over the 8th gen wheel, better in every way! Anyone else agree with me or am I making a big deal out of nothing?
