After catching sight of a Series 3 with a nicely leather finished steering wheel on Instagram I got to thinking…
The Series steering wheel is a nominal 20mm in thickness, excluding the “nobbles” on the back, that’s quite thin and isn’t all that comfortable to hold on long journeys. Plus in summer, when its hot, hands get sweaty and grip is reduced.
I thought about some bike handlebar tape; its self adhesive, designed for sweaty hands and pretty indestructible… but wouldn’t look right.
The Instagram post gave a name of an eBay shop with excellent ratings, so I bought an Italian made leather steering wheel cover.. Search for “Mr Steering” on eBay. (I’d embed the link but that’s too hard for the new WordPress editor)
