Steering wheel cover

Hi guys I've just ordered a X2 M Sport. Can you recommend a steering wheel Cover that's fits great and looks good as my Audi whee
Is killed due to my wife scratching the leather with her diamond on her wedding ring.

I'm from the UK if that's any use.


Cheers in advance,

Scott

There are a few people online eBay that make nice stitched leather/suede. They come with whatever thread color you want. I'd go shopping there... Bought a couple years and years ago for other cars and it was great.

I just really don't want wife to kill it like she has on our 9 month old Audi. It feels horrible now... I wear gloves so I can't feel the scratches

True the wheel is pretty big, but to me it's not really astronomical. I have a bunch of friends that put on the aftermarket rubber/bling covers (yes women) and those are HUUGE. No complaints from them. I did look on ebay for "suede steering wheel cover bmw" and it looks like there are the same ones out for about $50 USD. The importance is that they are formed with the "bumps" on the steering wheel. Go for the suede of course.. as if you put leather on it, you'll have the same scratch immediately!

Haha you sound like my wife... wrap the remote controller in plastic wrap so it stays clean..... for who.. the person that gets my TV when I throw it away? I enjoy it until I get it all dirty and then clean it. Wreck the stock steering wheel until you can't stand it and then wrap it. What's the use of wrapping it with something aftermarket to rip up, and then take it off when you sell it? Enjoy it brand new while you can!

Ha I would agree however it's on PCP so I'll be taking it back in 3 years and trading it in for a new car so if it's not back in decent condition I'll be stung and they will de value it more.
