Alcantara Steering Wheel

Wanted to get the M steering wheel for the E89 but it was wayyy to expensive. Decided to go for a re-wrap. Went for alcantara followed by the yellow stitchings to match the interior. Actually turned out pretty decent.. Kinda looks like the F30 M performance steering wheel.

Not entirely sure about the yellow line at the top but I do like the overall look with alcantara and yellow stitching, it really suits the interior you have. Nice work.

Wow... This was really nice Really blends into your nice interior. I done a custom alcantara steering wheel to my old E85 and loved it. I had to use BMW gloves to not wear the steering wheel down then....
