Soooooooooooo,
After going mad for a few weeks trying to swap the steering wheel on my 2015 E Class, I have finally managed it.

I went from this


To this


Everything works (including backlighting of buttons) .

I am V happy with the result, what does the panel think?

Regards, . HD.

Looks great!

I went for a similar style for my little A200 - had to be a custom re-trim, as no OE variants were available for the W169, just waiting now, as it's being made ...

Once I get mine fitted (in about a week and a half), you're more than welcome to have a close look (I'm in Northampton), to help you decide what/if to order ...

Looks awesome, I had one like that in my 2015 C250 AMG Line Prem Plus.

Would love to see what yours looks like GLK when it's fitted.

I'm either in town centre, often parked at St Johns multistorey, or at The Lakes on Bedford Rd (wife's office), so at most is 10 min from you :thumb:

I should hear by Thursday, when the fitting will be done ... will PM you.

I'll post a thread, once done. With lots of pictures :thumb:

Mine won't have any paddles though - not that I wanted them - it's a CVT after all.

I'm sure they do - Jack was, I felt, rather surprised someone wanted a custom steering wheel for a W169 haha, and he didn't have any donor ones in stock.
W209 would be much more popular, for that sort of things, I should imagine.

Rather than starting a new thread, I thought it would be better to continue this one, keeping essentially the same info together ...

Had a new steering wheel fitted this morning by Jack from Royal Steering Wheels - very nice chap, it was a pleasure to meet him in person.

Went from this:



to this:







Exactly as I wanted, extra thick and just lovely. Very pleased :thumb:

Now, anyone wants to buy a standard W169 steering wheel in black nappa leather?

Looks brilliant. Is this place close to Northampton? I'd look into getting one for my W209

Cheers :)
