Used DC electronics 12core coiled cable in the past but just wondering if anyone has better/cheaper/local recommendations?


Doesn’t have to be 12core, doesn’t need to be any spectacular sized gauge of wire.

Looking to use it for possible 2 or 3 functions- so 6 core at most

I think Andy Forrest was needing some cooled cable on Sunday too Smile .

But (from my professional career point of view where we used to use a lot of theses cables) you get what you pay for and aim for established professional brands. Superflex microphone cable in a coiled format is one that I've used successfully. I'd avoid cheap 'recycled' copper cable that maybe found ridiculously cheap online. Brittle and short lived,

RS options - https://uk.rs-online.com/web/c/cables-wires/electrical-power-industrial-cable/coiled-cable/?searchTerm=coiled%20microphone%20cable

DC Electronics - https://www.jjcraceandrally.com/rally/steering-wheel-bosses/dc-electronics-coiled-cable

for cost of https://uk.rs-online.com/web/p/coiled-cable/4516953/ it makes sense to just go for the £18 DC options

Lights

any other useful additions for steering wheel control on a basic car like a Mini cooper cup?

they are mounted on the steering column so easy reach.

The LED lights are currently on a rocker switch down near the gear knob!
