    I think you can but ACTUAL carbon fibre steering wheels............kind of OTT if you ask me though.

    Carbon Fibre steering wheels.......err, a bit overkill for my liking, but can easily be done.

    Seconded.

    I imagine it would be really tricky to line it up and lay it right, so it might look all over the place.

    Personally, wouldn't do it to my car, but each to their own! Might look sweet!

    Try cleaning the leather in the steering-wheel, too.. That might impress you!
