It takes just a little bit to get used to it. With the wheel in my hands, I can reach the tip of the indicator spalk just fine... No problems for me, as I don't have to take my hands off the wheel when indicating.

zuspiel,

IIRC these indicator stalk tips stick out from the dash a bit more than stock (as in closer to your hands on the spaced out wheel) Elise Parts - Interior - Polished Aluminium Brightwork - Indicator Stalks

Just in case you don't have 12" fingers like VortexLot

Sure can't hold a basketball in one hand...

Thank you for pointing those out. Excellent idea. I now remember seeing them a while back. They'll just need a date with an anodizer but they are perfect!

Even better, they come in black. No date needed...

Holy crap! Should have done this before I did anything else... No more scrunched up legs, no more moving the seat to get in or out, just the best driving position I've ever had in any car, period.

FWIW, didn't have to drill the spacer either. Just had to cut off the thin plastic ring on the back cover of the wheel and lightly sand the hole to make the spacer fit. Also installed the aluminum stalks. Looks like they get about 1/2 in closer to the wheel. Just enough for my decidedly "medium" size hands. I can flip the blinker with my middle finger w/o moving my hand.

Now, a flat bottomed wheel might make getting in and out easier... Yellow99 might get a PM from me one of these days...

Hi, would this work for 2014 exige V6? I would like to keep airbag functionality and move steering little bit closer to me to have space for hell toe. I found this : https://www.eliseparts.com/products/...wheel-adaptor/ and this https://www.elise-shop.com/steering-...d8423c7847eae7

thanks for reply!
