Is the size the same?

The only thing I have to say about the N/A steering is that it is a little big. Also, it would have been nice to have the flat bottom.

Yes, flat bottom like my old VW wheel, would've been a nice touch for all ST models.

The difference of the two steering wheels while minor, are different enough to still make a difference. If you look at the center cover of the European ones it seems less bulky and more rounded at the top giving more visibility to the dash ares via the opening. I addition, it seems that you get slightly more of a grip area on the bottom half of the Euro version.

Here are better pictures, you can see the raised cover area aboved the horn seems more significant on the NA versions.

I would say the flat bottom steering wheels makes it easier to get in and out of the car and leg clearance.

Looks the same to me other than the air bag cover. On a side note they can keep their center stack with all the buttons

Amen to that!

Also, if you look underneath the hvac controls, they are missing the interior lightings and t/c off button. Is it hiding somewhere else?

And no auto headlights?
