Steering Wheel Re-cover

I've had my S7 since 2016, and regularly use a Diskloc security cover on the steering wheel on a regular basis (with a wheel protector). Probably one of the most effective theft deterrents on the market, and has been for quite a few years.

Anyway, after 6 years of use, the wheel was starting to show a bit of wear, and being an expensive wheel I wasn't going to buy a new one. Instead I reached out to Royal Steering Wheels who offer a wheel refurbishment service. Did a fantastic job, and can only recommend them if you need a wheel refurb. It took about 10 days, and luckily I had a spare steering wheel to could ship mine off and still have use of the car. Got them to stitch the leather in Porsche Yellow - to match my callipers. :racer:

That looks great, you can't tell the difference between OEM (other than the colour). Regarding the Disklok, it seems absurd that we are still using these devices ( I remember the Police recommending one to my mum in the early 90s ) however they do work. The latest crime wave appears to be stealing airbags. Apparently there's a shortage and less scrupulous bodyshops are using stolen ones. The victims are finding their windows broken and the steering wheel missing

It it's not Airbags its catalytic converters....
Always something.
This whole problem with keyless thefts needs to be addressed by the industry. I think most thieves are a few steps ahead of the manufacturers :frown new:

Does look very cool mate! Do you use the small sock type cover that comes with the newer diskloks? I find it just adds that little extra protection, but not much

Yeah I always use the sock.
After 6years, I think it was just wear and tear.
The wheel is a bit thicker than a standard wheel, which probably doesn’t help :racer:
