Glad someone else brought this up - I'd never think of getting a smooth wood wheel or shift knob - for that very reason. Brrr! That heated wheel idea sounds great!RedMdxMemphis said:
Just to add comment to myself the wood steering wheel can be very COLD. With the icy weather we just have, I notice the wood portion basically is as cold as an ice stick. It can be a bit uncomfortable to use when you first get in the car.
I guess the opposite is also true.. during a regular or warm day, the wood portion gives a very nice touch and feel...
