GTI steerling wheel - changing your driving?


Recommended Posts

Bit of a personal question here.

Since coming from a MK4GTI to the MK5GTI I have really noticed a big difference in the way I position my hands on the steering wheel (eg racing position) far more than I did in my old car. This is mostly down to how it is shaped for you to drive with and the design which I feel is excellent.

Have you guys also noticed the change?

I feel a lot safer being encouraged to have 2 hands on the wheel at all times rather than being sloppy and only having one or very relaxed 2.

Actually my current A3 has a nice steering wheel with thumb indents on the steering wheel at the 9 and 3 o'clock positions, I made a conscious effort to drive with both hands on the wheel and now feel more assured when making swift progress.

My soon to be new GTI will only make this even more enjoyable smile.gif and I dare say necassary ! FIREdevil.gifECLIPSe.gif
