My new wheel and shiftboot

Hello all... I just had my steering wheel and shifterboot/knob done in alcantara with M tri color stitching. Wanted to share some pictures. What do you guys think?

BTW, it feels super nice in your hands.

Looks like a great job. I'm not a fan of Alcantra myself on the wheel and shifter, but if you are that looks like a very well done job.

Where did you get this done/can you provide an idea on cost? It looks fantastic. I'm also in the Bay Area and have been considering getting the steering wheel done.

Looks fantastic! I wonder how it'll hold up with time. I understand it's relatively easy to clean. I've contemplated doing it to mine, but I hardly put on 500 miles a year (so I think it'd be a waste).
Job well done

Thanks guys. I got this done at Cobywheel.com. Michael is pretty helpful. however there is a core charge where you send back your OE wheel or lose your core charge. i elected to keep my wheel incase i want to go back to stock in the future. the wheel alone is around $700 all in. core charge was about $300 of that. i think its worth it. makes the car that more special when you drive it.

Blackmist, looks lovely. Yes, not long lasting but feels great. I recently re-covered my ZHP wheel with Alcantara again. It just feels so good. Nicely done! I actually thought about it too because 1M is weekend car, so it would last a long time.

I went through Coby wheels about 6 months ago and they were great to work with. I did the same but also E brake and lever. Looks great!
