Saw a W210 E-Class with a lovely cream leather interior , quite hooked me really, but the car in question is a cat c write off so common sense prevails But it did have a beautiful wood / leather steering wheel looking on the web in the states they range from 400-1000 dollars ! I cant see any in the UK except for a kit done by AZcarparts uk for 24.99 on E-bay it is wood which clips over the existing wheel . Anyone know about the sourcing of a real wooden wheel or whether the kits are effective ?????

I have wooden wheel as well and quiet amazed to know how expensive they are....

Malc, this re-colour kit, can this be used to cover up the leather seat marks as well?

as we spoke about this on sunday Malcolm, all i need to do is decide whether my leather is classed as cream or beige/mushroom. it reminds me of mushroom soup, but ive yet to see that advertised as a colour!

I have a wood / leather wheel in my CLK.

I don't think I'd pay for one as an option.

You are wise to be cautious,, it is best to take a snip of leather from under the seat and send it to the guys so that they can match it
