Super easy. You can find the DIY in the DIY section. The only tricky thing was removing the airbag, which wasn't that bad.

Very nice. I have to do this mod but in no way will I do an alcantara wheel. My hands destroy alcantara like no other.

Steering wheel looks great, I would definitely add the alcantara steering wheel trim insert to match?

I'm thinking of picking up some driving gloves to help with the sweat factor.

Thank you Tischer for the awesome deal and fast shipping!

I recall you need a torx screwdriver too. I had to run out in the middle of the install to get one.

I have one and it's definetly one of my favorite mods after the blower! Makes you want to drive with both hands all the time!

Is there a matching alcantara shift boot that doesn't cost as much as the wheel?

Really liking the wheel
