Mein Auto: 328i
Leather Steering Wheel Wrap

Good afternoon. Just purchased my first BMW (328i) and was looking for a good quality leather steering wheel wrap.

Any suggestions?

Thanks,

Scott

Autoanything (http://www.autoanything.com) sells wheelskins. They are good quality and if you take your time and do a good job of installing them they look very good and feel very good.

Is the leather currently on the steering wheel messed up?

My advice is to get a new steering wheel...check out www.getbmwparts.com. I picked up the M-perf steering wheel...awesome purchase. They are around $425. You can pick up a used one in the classified section on the 'fest for around $250 or so. If you like alcantara, fest sponsor Coby Wheel does an excellent job - I had him do a wheel for my X5.

Thank you all, great info. The 2007 328i doesn't come with a leather steering wheel. It is the rubberized plastic. So I will either cover it or get a new one.

Thx

Yes, it does come with a leather wrapped wheel.
