Looking for a used Momo Monte Carlo or (EDIT) Competition, or maybe  or perhaps another brand that looks similar to either of those. Or maybe something else, what chu got?  Doesn't have to be perfect, but want one in "pretty good" shape with good grip in particular.

Bonus points if you have a hub adaptor for a Porsche 924/944 :)

Have you held both of those wheels? I swapped a Prototipo in for a Monte Carlo and I swapped back after one lap of the neighborhood. The Prototipo looks fantastic, but the Monte Carlo feels much better in your hands.

YMMV...

And for the record, the Fittipaldi E3 feels even better.

Yeah, the Monte Carlo is my preference for that very reason. Plus I think it definitely has more of an 80s style for my 924S. The Prototipo I'm less sold on, but damn it looks pretty :)

Haven't felt an E3, though not sure I love the appearance and they seem to be long-discontinued..... But interested in seeing if anyone is offering up anything interesting for GRM prices :)

In reply to irish44j :

My car came with a Fitti E3, but the leather was dry and cracked. I always wanted a Momo Monte Carlo, so I replaced the Fitti with one of those. Again, the Momo looked better, but damn that E3 feels great. It's currently being restored and will go back in at some point. The Fitti has a beautiful but non-collapsable hub though, and I don't love that. I will check to see if I can mount it to the Momo hub.

 

Here's the only photo I can find of the Fitti right now. You get the idea...
