(update pg5 wheel complete!)ordering ledermanz steering wheel...would like input!

planning on ordering this in December! what i'd like to know is i have a few ideas what i want but i want to know ye or ne?! first picture is what the steering wheel will look like shape wise. 2nd picture is what i had in mind but i also had other ideas i wanted to share and you tell me if it's too tacky or what not. he doesn't do carbon fiber $500 shipped no core needed

Option A: is black alcantara around the wheel. red stripe on top. black leather bottom and middle. red stitching all around.

Option B: black preforated around wheel. black leather bottom and middle with red stitching.

Option C: this is the one i thought seems cool but borderline tacky maybe
cinammon leather (what my interior has) around steering wheel. black leather or black alcantara bottom and middle. not sure what the stitching color should be?

appreciate your guy's input! or if you have any other suggestions i'm open to it!

I vote for option B (your first photo) but with 3 color stitching. More important, whatever you decide, don't go for option C to me that sounds pretty bad.

LOL... sure, I'll only check your gallery once after upgrade, but you'll have to live with it .
Seriously though I think low key/understated is a way to go with steering wheel, but that's just me.

By the way I vote definitely #1. I actually saw option 2 in person last weekend at the BMW meetup we had here in NYC. It's nice but I feel like it only went well because he had it in his 4 series that has red interior and he also made his trim near the dash alcantara as well. Without that, I don't think it would mesh well with your interior color and nothing else alcantara. Just my $.02

Looks aside, I just don't get the current obsession with this material in auto industry, whether it's used on seats or steering wheels (or both) .

This is just personal opinion of course, I know lots of luxury and exotic cars these days come with alacantara. I'd take (even lower quality) leather on my steering wheels and seats over alacantara in a heartbeat. For looks, ease of maintenance and long term durability.

i thought of the alcantara just to break up the texture and look of the wheel. about 90% with black preforated around the wheel, black leather for the flat bottom and middle piece and tri stitching like you guys recommend. any other ideas?

You're going crazy! Lol someone got lucky and got it for $400. I emailed him and he said $450 + $50 shipping so I went back and edit the post so I wouldn't give people the wrong price.

So place the order for the wheel. Black perforated sides...black top, bottom, middle with tri stitching! Thanks guys for your input. Will take a couple of weeks buy even than won't put it in until the end of winter. Next up Carbon grills!

Go with the wheel in the top pic man, the other one is fugly plus it's gonna get nasty from your hand sweat after you get that turbo upgrade

I was gonna get one for my girls e60 for $275, she said it's nice but I want a new car instead-damn it!
