My '07 P30 SLK55 has dried and peeling leather on the steering wheel since I bought it. Where is the best place to buy either a replacement R171 P30 wheel or preferably a facelift R171 P30 wheel and airbag?

As I understand, it's a simple job to make the switch correct? Same connections, so simply plug and play?

Yea, I knew about chrometec but their price seems absurd. Lots of R172 wheels on ebay for half the price... if only they worked...

P030 Steering

Hi,

I've got a SLK 280 Pre-FL R171. Also looking for a steering wheel mod. Preferably a SLK55 Facelift P030.

Where can I get one at a reasonable price? It needs to come with the airbag.

Are there any other type of steering wheel that has the same fitment?

Thanks!

Just an update, I checked with the dealer and price is $3200 for the facelift AMG P30 wheel, without airbag. $2200 for a replacement Pre-facelift AMG P30 wheel, also without airbag. Ridiculous.

I'm going to try a leatherique leather repair/redye treatment, then look into reupholstering if that fails.

Have you looked into a wheel from a wreck?
