Woohoo! New steering wheel was bought in October 2021 to replace the old standard-issue Touareg steering wheel.
This one has a nice leather and rubber finish with tailored grips.
Originally I was simply going to get mine re-covered with new leather but it meant that the car would be out of action for about a week.
So I went onto eBay to see if I could pick up a second-hand replacement which I would give to the leather guys and they would swap out the steering wheel giving me only a few hours of downtime…but… I stumbled across this little beauty on ebay.
The seller is in Germany, the delivery time is a little slow, had to wait nearly 4 weeks) but the quality of the steering wheel is really really good.
Here is the unboxing (kind of) of the steering wheel)
I had just received it an hour before and it’s wonderful looking. I will be posting some pictures of a video of the steering wheel installed.

It’s so comfortable and smooth it’s easy to forget you are driving a 2.5-tonne tank.
