Steering Wheel Re-trim with some Paddles

Decided to get the slightly naff original wheel re-trimmed in Alcantara with some G-Paddles fitted. Also had it made into a flat bottom and thickened slightly. OK the paddles are sprayed to match the calipers and Orange stitching (OK, a bit OTT but purely personal) but what a difference the feel of the wheel makes which is my point here. Really impressed by the quality of Royal Steering Wheels. All in for 250 - I think it's a bargain against aftermarket wheels or upgraded AMG ones that are 800 plus.

Looks great. Not sure about conversion rates, but it sounds like a good deal also.

Hi All


I was going to message you this week to see if you went ahead with your Orange G Paddles . Looking very good man . I had my steering wheel re-trimed a few years ago by the same company (they do good work) . Only one bit to update now & that's the switch covers they look abit plain now completed the rest of the steering wheel.
