Interesting with some good information. But, with all the turns on the track or twisties, I am not sure how realistic or functional it would be. IMHO, all this into on a HUD would be more useful.

Maybe it's just me, and it very well could be (what do i know?!?), but this is suuuuuuper gimmicky and tacky in my opinion.

I wonder if you can buy this without the electronics? I like the look of the wheel.

Nope, it's not you.

Besides that it looks tacky, that steering wheel is pointless in my opinion unless you're driving in a straight line.

Yes, its available but I still think it looks tacky. I believe it was just announced as part of the M Performance parts (no electronics version). But hey, that's the cool part about customization and mods...personalization, expressions of personal taste, etc...to each his own.

Quite expensive gimmick at $1700.
