Ok so i recently purchased a mini cooper r56 which has just the basic plastic 2 spoke wheel. I must admit, im finding this wheel a bit rubbish really. IMO it feels really cheap and brings the car down in looks and feel.
Initially i was looking at conversion to a 3 spoke MFSW however the cost of this seems far to high for my budget. From my understanding i would need new wheel, new airbag, and possibly coding? im havent even bothered to phone up mini dealer about this yet as im sure it will be a good few £100's.
My other option is replace the current 2 spoke, with a new leather 2 spoke. I have seem them on ebay going for about £70. This would definatly be the cheaper option, and im sure the leather wheel would feel like a massive improvement.
Has anyone on here done this in the past, comments, advice please, is it an easy job?
Also is it possible to get a 2 spoke leather wheel from mini directly, or am i limited just to ebay. I will be calling into the garage in a few days, however thought i would ask on here first.
