    Why are Irmscher Steering wheel's so expensive?

    I can't really understand how the irmscher steering wheel's are so expensive, i mean £370 for a steering wheel.

    Does anyone know why this is?

    so everyone doesnt have one, so they stay exclusive,

    same reason they charge £50 for a gear knob, if they were £9.99 everyone would get one and they wouldnt be anything special

    Yeah it is a bit OTT, £370 is a lot for a steering wheel.

    The carbon one is lovely mind you

    They are tasty though.

    Think I recall seeing that LMF have some cheap alu ones at the moment too.
