Anybody know where to buy this steering wheel cover?

Hi, does anyone know where I could buy this? I PM'd the user but never got a response. I'd really like to buy one!






Thanks so much for any help!

Maybe, but it doesn't look custom made....

Not all mods are about looks.
Alcantara (fake suede) does offer superior grip compared to the standard leather. The drifting marker can also be useful (even if not drifting), as you can memorize how much to turn the wheel for specific curves. Pobably more useful on the M Sport line where the performance control actually lets you slide if you push it.
The major practical down side to Alcantara (again, not considering looks) is how it sucks up sweat and can feel clammy even the next day.

Sorry, probably didn't see your question the first time.

Anyways, you can customize these wraps in ANY way you want. But the bad thing is, they only offer it in China (where I'm at currently).

Go to the above to see some of the wraps you can order from them, pretty badass...

Damn. I was really hoping to get one. There are places in America that will wrap it for you but I didn't want to have to ship my steering wheel. Maybe I'll find something similar here.
