Icon8 Keeping stock S. Wheel. WTF?

Took my car to 2 different professional upholstery shops and they both said that they couldn’t re-wrap the steering wheel. Reason being that the leather would not be tight enough on the steering wheel. I really want to keep the stock steering wheel. A leather cover has been sufficient thusfar. Although a different steering wheel with cruise control and HU volume control would be so tight. Like say, for instance off of an Acura maybe? But the aftermarket HU that will eventually replacing the OEM one would be incompatible with such controls anyway. Have any of you had your factory wheel redone? Are these BS shops here right? Can it not be done?

The stock steering wheel ****ing sucks. Get a S2K steering wheel, it's easy to install and hooks right up for cruise control. I have a pic of mine installed if you want to see it.

Re: Keeping stock S. Wheel. WTF?

The shops are pulling your leg. Any good trimmer can retrim the standard wheel. In fact some places over here advertise that they can do it without removing the wheel. Though the cost for such a service is fairly similar to what it is to obtain a slightly used S2000 tiller, so the choice is yours if you actually want to do it.
