Where to get Steering wheel reupholstered?
The leather on my e60 M sport wheel is cracking at the top and looks horrible. Where can I get it re-done preferably to look OEM again?

RE: Where to get Steering wheel reupholstered?
My personal experience???

Not worth it.
Cheapest Quote i got to recover a Sports steering for E46, with the Woodgrain Insert was R2500 in genuine leather

I ended up getting an MSport Style steering wheel in near mint condition for R1500 ( if i remember correctly )

rather try to get a replacement one

Just me 2c

check those china websites....they sell the leather along with the string and you just cover the old leather with that if you not keen on replacing you steering wheel.

Just check the video on how to get the correct sew pattern and you will be good to go

Google "Handel Street Leather" and ask for Ashraf when you contact them.

Dinesh f##ked up my steering wheel beyond repair. Stripped inner rubber aswell as the leather. And then recovered it with vynl and leather. What a cockup.

RE: Where to get Steering wheel reupholstered?
Royal steering wheels UK are the only ones that I know are OEM quality.
As far as I have been advised by some local collectors, no one in RSA is capable of even coming close to 50% of Oem standards.

It’s a pity actually , because as a poor country we have a lot of second hand cars that need TLC. It would be a good opportunity for a real craftsman.
If he could do one steering wheel a day at say 3k labour plus materials .
That’s fair income and I would happily pay that provided it is OEM quality.

RE: Where to get Steering wheel reupholstered?
Dinesh has done two steering wheels for me, both M cars, was more than happy with his work on those, not saying all of his work is perfect, wasn’t totally happy with a seat bolster he did....
