What would you be gripping most if your M3 is your weekend toy?

love that wheel. Ever since I owned that ZHP with Alcantra wheel, nothing can replace the feel of the Alcantra leather.

This wheel looks absolutely awesome. I would love to have one, the only reservation I would have is that these wheels are really meant to be used in conjunction with racing gloves. When you use them on a daily basis with bare hands the alacantra starts to break down over time from sweat/oils/moisture and gets hard and starts to look ratty. Granted this does take a bit of time to occur, but in a daily driver it wouldnt take too long. And if anyone else is driving your car they might not be as carefukl as you are....I could see my wife with a cold drink that was sweating....going from wet

Now you could keep your racing gloves in your car..........Always an option

I really want to get this wheel when it comes out for 6mt but I too am a little hesitant for this same reason. Alcantara does feel amazing, I just don't know how long it will hold up. Numerous people here have reported getting their alcantara wheels re-wrapped in leather

wouldnt that get all nasty and grimey over time? i drove a 2006 ZCP m3 with this type of steering wheel and it felt really gross...like all the sweat over the years from your hands got baked right inside it...it was just a weird feeling..how would u clean it?

This brush is awesome for lifting oil out of leather. I use it with the BMW leather cleaner/conditioner which I highly recommend. Of course, for suede you will probably need a suede specific cleaner...don't have a recommendation there.

We have it up and on special here! It's currently on pre-order status as it's not officially released here in the US as of yet, but we expect it anytime now! When ordering through our site, we won't actually charge your card until it's in and shipping out to you!
