Alcantara is nice for the first while but when it starts to wear its ugly. Leather stays 'fresh' for much longer and ages more gracefully. Given your re-sale history, I'd suggest leather.. Smile

Hand I would say there is not much in the wear or even alcantara wears better. Alcantara is easy to clean up to new whereas once leather wears it wears. Plus on a hobby car Alcantara just feels more special Wink

However given the amount Sponge uses his cars I doubt the bubble wrap will come off wack

To be fair the mileage will probably never start with a 3 Grin. I’m airing towards leather I think, smart with yellow stitching a the old yellow ring.

It’s strange normally when I buy a new motor (which is alot) I look around at others and think cr@p I should of bought that one instead! Not the case with Herman Yellow, can’t find anything I’d rather have! WTF!!

Plus now I’ve told mrs Sponge it seems real Surprised

Binned him off after his appalling lack of communication.

I'll be using this guy for my gear knob.

That’s odd. I’m in no way affiliated to jack but coincidentally I emailed him about a retrim earlier this week and his comms and rate were great (just like when I used him for my m3 two years ago). Not sure what’s gone on - but be sure the email isn’t in your junk folder

I am with Jonitt on Alcantara , when you clean it it comes up like new, feels great with a better grip than leather . at minimum if you can't bring yourself to go with Alcantara at least consider the 12 o'clock in yellow Alcantara. Thumb Thumb

I gave up in the end, was going to send off, then decided to get it done with their trimmers, but apparently the 991 steering wheel cant be recovered because it damages that particular wheel Rolling Eyes
Thanks for the offer though Thumb I think ill live with it and see, I am airing towards alcantara again Grin As I have zero patience I may just wait for one to come up for sale then do a swap.

Can't be retrimmed??

What sort of wheel is it?

Pictures please!

When I got mine done by Royal, I spoke with Jack - he advised taking the trim off the wheel before trimming - costs extra and is really fiddly, but it is the only way to get it right.

I've added a picture of my wheel for reference
