The installation guide is fantastic and the process is straight-forward. I think it is nearly impossible *not* to break the horn harness clip on the airbag module when removing it. I replaced it with a neatly trimmed zip tie.

Initial impressions...I like the thicker cross section, and the quality materials make driving feel more 'special' than the OEM wheel. Square bottom removes any possibility of thigh bumping upon entry or footwork impediments while driving.

There are a few key differences from the OEM wheel that warrant mentioning:
1) It is less comfortable to twirl the wheel with the heel of my palm while parking, mostly I think due to the flat bottom. I used to palm the wheel at the bottom edge, but now that doesn't work very well. Trying out a two-hand push-grab method, but it is a lot slower.
2) There are no finger grooves on backside of wheel. Not a complaint, just makes the wheel feel different.
3) There is no groove for my fingertips on the back of the 9 and 3 o’clock spokes, which was my favorite grip position while cruising.
4) I am not a huge fan of the 10 and 2 o’clock meaty-grip positions, but they are growing on me.
5) The CS wheel is so thick that I cannot see all of the turn signal indicators in my preferred driving position. I adjusted the wheel position to compensate.

But these are just observations which result from changing the one thing you use in a car 100% of the time. A great product, and highly recommended.
Just installed. Great product, but a couple things to watch out for. Go slow removing the black retention clip that is on the wire with the white connector on the back of the airbag. Also one of the “2 screws with a different thread pattern”, that secure the buttons, did not have any threading in the new casting, the other side was fine.
I was looking at buying this for some time but put it off because I thought it was too pricey. I then started looking at a new car, but decided it was way too expensive so instead I thought I would try and modernize my 2010 speed. The wheel definitely makes the car feel newer. The width and feel of the wheel is sweet. Install took me a hour. I took my time and made sure not to snap or break anything. It helps having smaller hands. Yes I would recommend.
I agree with last two reviewers (Ricky & Pastor Dave)....why did i wait so long to get this ...and why does everything I buy from CS seem better than the last thing I bought? This steering wheel seems to hit right where my hands want to go and should be in every Mazda sold.
10 times better than the stock steering wheel. Was a snap to install, I would say 1 out of 5 on the difficult scale. The fit, form and function are really nice. And as always, the staff, service and shipping are among the best around. I would recommend this to any Speed enthusiast.
Why does everything I buy from CS seem better than the last thing I bought? When I first saw the steering wheel, I thought that this could definitely wait....well, some extra money fell my way from some extra preaching I did and I went for it.

If you read my reviews of the items I have purchased here, the word WOW is seen often! This wheel is no exception. The wheel seems to hit right where my hands want to go. The old "3 o'clock/9 o'clock" position is right there with room for the thumbs to grip the wheel and fall into the groove. The "10 & 2" position is also comfortable. The new "7 & 5" recommendation for avoidance of the airbag is also comfortable. The flat bottom....just too cool!

(This part can be removed, but I have either an optical illusion or something. It seems that the right side of the bottom is lower than the left. The tech at the dealer installed the steering wheel and all of the pieces fit perfectly, but it still looks crooked to me. Any thoughts? Thanks!?
I really thought long and hard about whether to get this wheel or a different brand from Japan considering it needed to be shipped to New Zealand, exchange rates etc.
I am so glad I went with the CorkSport. Guys great to deal with and shipping was not an issue. Only delay is with N.Z. customs and extra duty fee to consider.
I was concerned about fitting it because I have never done anything like this before. But the instructions are very clear and precise and good to know there is a helpline. My sp25 auto has the paddles on the control assembly so had 4 extra screws to deal with but this was no drama. Took this novice just over an hour which shows how easy it is to install.
The wheel is amazing. Love it. Looks and feels awesome.
I've had my Mazda for 4 years but this makes it feel like a new car!
Highly recommend this product and CorkSport!
Amazing steering wheel. Has a great feel it to and is the perfect size. This is something Mazda really should have thought about putting in stock. Installation was simple, and only took about 30 minutes.

Thanks CS!
This is one sexy additional to my 2k13 MS3! This wheel is what should have come on the MS3 stock. My only concern was the color matching of the stitching, which CS got spot on. Install was simple and all stock steering control fit like a glove. If it wasn't for the CS logo on the wheel, you would think is was stock. The wheel performs great! Just slightly oversized from stock which gives you a bit more leverage and control driving through twisty roads. Feels great in the hands with a thicker grip. Love the contoured shape. Oh, and did I mention it looks sexy!! A++ Product :)
if you're on the fence about this product, just do it. i never knew i hated the OEM wheel as much as i did until i bought and installed this wheel.

as always, corksport provided detailed instructions to make it very difficult to mess up.

install took me about 35 min, and 10 of that was spent trying to unclip the airbag.

i give this a solid 10/10.
Easily the easiest and best upgrade you could do for your Mazda! Easy and straight forward install, great quality and feels really nice.
Simple... just buy it. A little pricey. But worth every dollar. The difference is like night and day. Makes you wonder why Mazda didnt put something like this in the car in the first place. Totally compliments the car

Thanks Corksport!

Got this product about 2-3 weeks ago, install was extremely simple, it took about 30 minutes. The feel is incredible, the fit is incredible, and it looks like the wheel the car should've had the entire time. I think the wheel refined my entire interior. The grips give you a more engaging ride as well. Ovearall beyond satisfied.
Only took 45 minutes to install while carefully reading the instructions to make sure everything went smooth. Instructions are detailed and easy to follow. The corksport steering wheel is significantly thicker than the OEM wheel and feels great in the hands. Definitely looks awesome and feels great! Would recommend to others!
Just installed this wheel yesterday and what a fantastic upgrade! It really is much thicker and the flat bottom takes a little getting used to if you've never used one, but there is no mistaking the quality. The top of my OEM wheel was getting white after only three years from use, so this is a welcome change. Really a night and day difference.

Nice work Corksport!
Just got this wonderful piece installed 3 days ago. As far as the install that took me like 25 minutes, super easy and as always great install instructions and pictures from Corksport. The feel of this thing is AMAZING. Its much thicker than the stock wheel and a bit thicker than my brothers 2016 STI. (He was a little jealous TBH) The leather feels like top quality, very very similar to my friends brand new BMW M4. Everything about this is perfect and it has encouraged me to drive with both hands on the wheel EVERYTIME now just because of how great it feels. Do you dare expect anything less from Corksport? Great job Corksport!!!
This is a great wheel it is nice, thick, aggressive and very sporty, slightly time consuming for the install but great instructions to be able to get the job done. I had this product ordered the day it came out. I have been waiting for years to get a wheel like this for my speed. It has been at least 5 months of having it now and absolutely no issues.

For everyone on here, If you have issues with shipping or back orders please don't leave a negative reply on the product unless the product itself has issues. Work out your shipping problems with Corksport.
BUYER BEWARE: I purchased this product on July 13th only to find out after contacting Corksport that the product would only be completed by August. This is not disclosed on the product page. Perhaps its just for Canadian customers?

***CorkSport Reply*** Back orders happen when you release a stellar product like the Steering Wheel.
OEM wheel is just too skinny. This wheel is pretty beefy, with some great shaping for hands and thumbs. It's made driving my car 100% better, completely new and better experience. Took me longer to install (about an hour), I was just being super careful.
I was never a huge fan of the stock Mazda wheel. I always felt a Driving my wife's 2012 GTI made me dislike it even more. Her wheel was smaller but thicker and had nice ergonomic hand grips. The Corksport wheel is a good improvement over the stock Mazda wheel and almost as good as the GTI wheel.

My one complaint is that it feels a little light. Kind of like its hallow. Not that it needs to be terrible heavy. But like a good shift knob a little weight makes things feel more responsive and gives it a little heft. Over all I like it. But there is room to improve.
Here it is...the first review! I've never been happy with the skinny OEM wheel on my 2011 MS3 since new so I've been waiting on this for years. Simple install instructions...took about 30 minutes. It's fiddly, so take your time. Felt a little oversized for about the first 10 minutes of driving. Now I'd never go back. Thick grip all around. Totally different driving experience. Great manufacturing and leather quality. Looks and feels like it should have when it came off the production line in Hofu. You'll be the envy of your car club with this. I sprayed mine with a high quality leather protectant multiple times before installation to ensure it stays looking awesome. Thanks for another great product CorkSport!
This Wheel is Freaking AMAZING!!! This is how the Speed3 should had come from the Factory. Do yourself and your Speed3 a favor, get this Wheel Rim it will not disappoint. You will feel more connection with the car and will have 10x more grip and handle as you take tight corners. The Wheel feels very Racy in hand and is comfortable while cruzing the freeway. Stop thinking about it and get it! Easy install as all things are from CorkSport, Great engineering guys, keep up the Fantastic Work!!!!
This steering wheel is absolute amazing! It’s easy to install and has an awesome feel. The quality is second to none.
The wheel feels as good as it looks, in both the quality of the leather and where the contours conform to my hands. The perforations wicked away any sweat that normally plagues my grip when going hard for a long time - the Tail of the Dragon was a great test. The wheel inspires confidence in the twisties, and has those awesome thumb cutouts for lazy cruising. Install was quick, simple, and fits 100% OEM. Excellent product at a good price - compare to VW Mk6-7 wheels.

What wheel would you compare it to in terms of feel? My friend has a 2018 Golf R with suede sections on the steering wheel, at 3 and 9 o'clock. Is this wheel like that?
