    I've been thinking about changing my steering wheel for a while - I've currently got the M Tech wheel - which I like the look of and the only criticism I have of it is that it's a little thin. Whilst looking around for options I came across a chap on eBay who pads out the steering wheels and recovers them The best bit is that he can also do beige stitching for me to make it that little bit more unique and blend in better with the rest of the interior. He also does options for the leather - you can get perforated or smooth and I even considered getting the bottom section done in beige leather (like the individual wheels) - but thought it might be a little overkill, so settled on all black with beige stitching. If I want to add more colour later I can always get beige leather steering wheel tabs! LOL!

    These pics should give an idea of how it'll look (exactly the same, except the stitching! ):
