Exactly zero should also fall within the factory spec so the :dillerman: shouldn't bitch about it. Really can't go wrong and ought to be $100ish.
Decent test for my new VW shop I've found. It should be easy but I'd rather start them with easy.

Indeed. The one that goes inside.

It's one of the few things I miss from the Alfa.

The steering wheel is the one thing I miss from the Alfa so I got one that was more like it. It's built on an OEM core with additional thumb thingies and some thickness and carbon fibers etc etc.

The OEM one is not cheap, either. It's a pretty fantastic wheel actually, especially when you consider it comes in a pretty humble :egg:

Pics of the replacement?

I think I've seen it before. Some tuning company does them right?

Gonna sell the old wheel? I may be interested....

Mine will have a blue centering line and blue stitching just as this pic. Alacantra and carbon fiber.

Yeah the wheel is seriously good at the price point of the car, but the Alfa spoiled me.

Eurozone Tuning.

Wasn't planning on selling the stock as this will definitely be something I demod at sale.

Retaining the center VW hub makes it look OEM.

That's what attracted me the most. It's a stock core and retains all functionality (airbag, buttons, etc)

Remember to take your rings off when manhandling the wheel or you’re gonna scratch that sweet sweet CF.
