Yes, Yes, I know suede has it pitfalls in terms of maintenance, but, hey, it sure feels good:applause:. The shop did'nt have alcantara and I didnt want to wait for two weeks! They also didnt have the correct blue and red threads so I just used black. Feels sooo good. Its one of those cheap things that can transform your car!

I really like the suede look!!!

That said "reskinning" your knob sounds extremely painfull - EEEK!

Please keep us updated on the durability and wear and tear on the suede

Ha Ha... I didnt get it. Yes it would be painfu:mad:l

But kiddin aside, the knob feels good! The suede on the wheel and the knob makes the car feel much more up to date and sporty. So cheap at around USD80 for both.

That seems great to me. Do they have to take the wheel off? Could be an isuue with airbag, otherwise I'm reskinning mine too

Yup I had to take it off. But I guess it should be no problem to take your wheel off. Ask someone like Farrell on how to go about it. Taking the shifter was a little noobish for me. Normally you twist a knob right? Not with our cars, you just pull it up! Good thing I figured it out and didnt break my shift knob.
