    For those who hate Alcantara...

    I couldn’t stand the Alantara (faux sh....) on the steering wheel, especially when I sneezed on it and it took 10 minutes to get the stain out of it.

    I found this alternative at CJ Pony parts, a Full Perferated Leather Wheel. No Alantara, Red center stripe and cheaper that OEM or Carbon Fiber wheels. If you look on site I asked for fitment to my car (2107) and answer was Yes! Order Placed. I will post pic once I get installed.

    Another option, that I am looking at, is going with carbon fiber & leather.

    But for the price, CJ's leather steering wheel is attractive.

    Dave, I'm part of that group buy and still awaiting my wheel. Most of the group got their wheels a ways back but their are 6 of us left waiting. The original company supplying DCTMS had QC issues and they had to switch production facilities. Should be here soon and Terrance aka Hans Solo/50 Deep has been very good about keeping us updated. The ones who already got their wheels were VERY happy with the quality and they do appear to be nice wheels. You might check with 50 Deep as they do have a few wheels (last I heard) from the original batch that folks backed out on after ordering...

    JT, please keep us updated on your new wheel and pics once mounted would be fantastic, thx!

    One way or the other I will have a new wheel, the faux suede isn't so much getting dirty as wearing quickly.

    So sill on my quest to eliminate the Faux Suede. Round 2, can you say 100% Leather Recaro’s? Found this place in Canada who will make Custom Covers for our Recaro’s Seats.

    JT, we have two excellent upholstery guys here in Simi. I was thinking as my faux suede starts to wear I'll likely have him replace the center faux suede seat panels with nice perforated leather panels and leave the upper "GT350" area of the seats (that don't get wear) and the bolsters in the faux suede and cloth to tie in the rest of the interior. Hope that makes sense?

    Thanks Brad, I have a few Dealerships up here that use Leather services. Classic Fine Trim is one of them (Hayward,CA). Do you have any idea of cost? I have replaced many factory covers (Hog Rings and all) and it’s far from hard. I guess cost would be the answer.
