My friend is considering to custom order alcantara steering wheel from www.aglausa.com for his VW Gti. So it exists but I don't think it's going to be cheap. He was quoted about $450 for the labor only. The alcantara itself must cost more....

Alacantara is a man made suede and is very durable and resistant to staining and wear. Since you can buy the material for approximately $65/yard x 54 " wide, it isn't the material that is going to make the wheel expensive.

Doesnt BMW make a M3 steering wheel that is covered with alcantara? What is the M3 CSL steering wheel covered in? I thought it was alcantara but could be mistaken. :dunno:

Those are only two of many people who sell Alcantara, i.e., man made suede. You can find the same or equivalent at any quality fabric store. Ultrasuede in the same stuff as Alacantara without the brandname. If you want it by brand name there are others retailers who carry it. google.com will help you out.

I've been searching for years on nice steering wheel cover, but no luck, of course. Anyone knows a shop that does it in Los Angeles area, please be advised? TIA.
