    Re trimmed steering wheel

    Just a few pics of my new re-trimmed steering wheel

    sides perferated leather and top and bottom smooth with extra padding, i also wrapped the the chrome plastic trim


    It's so much more chunky than the standard one feels a lot better

    Looks good, do you have to send your old one back as a surcharge?

    No he wasnt, he is in oxford

    Here is his website: Royal Steering Wheels | Exclusive look, unique feeling

    it took a couple of weeks to get made, but he will do any combo of leather type/colour or stitching colour

    i think he will even fit it for you

    Yes you have to pay a deposit, £100

    which you get refunded once you send your old one back

    Are the colours on the new leather different or is it all the same (perforated sections look slightly greyer?)

    Very interested in this, gives a tired looking M-steering wheel a new lease of life.

    See if you can get commision on everyone you reccomend

    Did think about going Alcantara but its really not practical!

    Read his address and you'll find he is in Abingdon not Oxford, thought it was him and you tried to confuse
