First Interior Mod

What do you guys think? I personally think it looks great! I prefer this wheel over the M performance wheel with the electronic screen.

Thanks, guys. Yes, I believe it may be a hair thicker around the wheel, but at the 3 & 9 (I spend 95% of the time the time holding) it actually thins out a little bit. It overall feels great. Love the feeling of suede on a wheel. Takes me back to my racing days. I also have the gear lever in suede. haven't driven the car much after install (it's in a different country to where I am based).

Easily the best and only interior mod I've done. Love my Alcantara M wheel. Make sure you clean it monthly or every few months...and it will stay good for a long time
