    My "Esprit" C-Class came with the standard 390mm, thin vinyl steering wheel (with silver star), which IMHO feels pretty insignificant and unispiring to use.  I'd like to upgrade it to a smaller/chunky "leather" item and am hoping someone can offer recommendations for an (affordable) upgrade.  

    The W202/W210 accessory booklet lists the factory options in 390/380/370mm sizes plus various colours etc, but am not really fussed about dual tone leather or wood - black leather is fine (oohhh-urrr).

    Also, if I opt for another MB wheel can I still use the original airbag and centre pad thingy ??

    depending on the design you might need a new airbag also!  Steering wheels from MB are awfully expensive :/

    I know what u mean about that non leather 202 wheel . It was wall worth the £183.12 to have it leather covered from the factory.

    Have you looked into getting it leather covered? Maybe v12 knows somone who can help.

    I'll find out, its actually meant for a S-Class (w140) but can fit the W202.

    If you have ever seen one, you will know the actual wheel is not cream (mushroom) but it is a browny colour, same as dash.

    Do you know if it uses the same airbag module?
