What steering wheel?

Any recommendations for a racey steering wheel? Looking for suede, undrilled, and ideally with a yellow marker on the top.

If you have a bike engine with a paddle shift, don't buy a cheap RD one, I had one break on me at Brands last season, and several others have had the same thing.
I've now got a Momo one, worth the extra money.

Yes I have BEC and paddle shift, so should have said the wheel also needs to be fairly flat to keep the paddle shift within reach!

What are the flat bottom wheels like to use? I wasn't sure if they would be a hinderence?

I race with one of these, http://www.demon-tweeks.co.uk/motorsport/steering-wheels/momo-model-26-steering-wheel ,

It's no problem at all to use, just needs some setting up with your wheel to paddle gap.

What size does everyone find usable... don't want to compromise driving by going too small...

I use a 320mm one, which I quite like for size (I chose it as it's the same size as on my old Elise), but people bigger than me struggle to get their legs under it. I think it's probably about right for steering weight (but I have a heavy engine).

A friend bought one like this http://www.demon-tweeks.co.uk/motorsport/steering-wheels/omp-indy-open-steering-wheel so he could see his dash better, seems to quite like it and the benefit is obvious in terms of dash visibility.
