    Installed a Leather Steering Wheel Cover

    I have a 2012 5 sport and the steering wheel was starting to have the vinyl covering on it wear off in spots. I thought I'd get one of those leather steering wheel covers that you sew on, and bought this one:

    This is my attempt at installing it, it turned out OK. It makes the wheel thicker, and has a good feel. I'm used to wheels like this since my other cars have all been things like WRX, Legacy GT, BRZ, etc.

    I have some issues on the backside, where things dont quite fit perfectly. If I were to do it all over again, I'd take the wheel off the car, take all the plastic off, install the cover first. I'd also use a lot more of the double-sided tape (didn't use much), and stitch every other loop.

    Just thought I'd share in case anyone else is interested!

    FYI, Mz5 GT trims come with leather steering wheel, MS3's leather wheel have red stitching. Much easier and cheaper to buy off ebay.
