Steering wheel

Any idea where I could get my steering wheel re wrapped in leather? Its a 05 m3 with the competition package so its wrapped in alcantara.

You're probably better off buying another M3 wheel and just selling yours. You'll probably break even. Or trade with an M3 owner that wants alcantara.

SpeeD is right it would be better if you find someone with leather do a straight trade. My I ask you why you prefer leather instead of alcantara?

Well my steering wheel needs a over haul, My alcantara is in the worst shape and After looking at the alcantara when its new and clean I like it. Mine just always looked so ugly but when its new and clean it looks amazing. Also my steering wheel needs new upper and lower trims. I found a guy cobywheel.com and I herd many great stories about his work. Might just get it re wrapped in that, because I don't think I could pay someone to take my steering wheel as its in terrible shape.

Try a "shoe guy" ... one of the shoe repair shops in the malls or where ever. Sometimes they'll do small things like wheels and shift boots if you give them a week or two.

Not a bad idea, if the OP has a spare steering wheel he can slap on for a week or two...lol
