Default Steering wheel

Mine has gone to shit because the prev. owner had a driver who wore gloves all the time and now 9 and 3 oclock positions are slowly disintegrating.
Without spending 1400 euros on a new one, anyone have any solutions.

I've emailed a place in Dallas and they cannot restitch the Alpina stitch. The guy in UK outright refused.

I'm checking ebay daily but apart from wheels similar condition to mine, there's nothing.

Or if anyone has sneaky connections to japan auctions or some german forum logins, I'll buy the three or four spoke steering wheel right away, even if its in good, not great shape. Would prefer the 4 spoke.

thanks

I recently found out about this Yahoo auctions buying service:

http://www.rightdrive.ca/brands/

Scroll down and you'll see where they advertise buying at Japan Yahoo auctions. I've currently got an order in with them for a Peugeot 106 bumper. It hasn't arrived yet but so far the transaction has been smooth and affordable.

For the west coast you are better off going through J Cruisers out of Armstrong BC.

I just did my third big order through them

I'm not trying to be a jerk, but if you type "jcruisers" in a google search bar I'm sure you can find their website with contact info, and I stated that I've used them 3 times. What else are you looking for with examples of their work? If they are just sourcing parts there's not much to show for an example.

LOL!

Since that came from your photobucket I had a look around...you've done some really nice work on your car getting it cleaned up. Have you posted those photos on here? If not, you really should because your car looks AMAZING!!!!
