I just purchased my up a early Christmas present I brand new steering wheel from high up ( the one with up written on the bottom)
I find the standard wheel very rough and let's the car done i might get it recovered before I put it on in nice leather with white stitching or alcantara

What you think

I love the leather steering wheel it's narrow and easy to hold, just right for my short fat fingers. We have a C2 that has a horrid fat slippy plastic steering wheel with the daft sticky out bits for your thumbs.

eBay I missed one from same company couple of weeks ago! They emailed me to say that they had another one and would I like to buy it now for £140 which I did

Fitting is not a problem as I work for a BMW dealer lots of techs and one used to,work a VW

My high up doesn't have the logo. I think you have the up black/white special edition wheel.. Very cool...

To be honest I got one of the tech's at work to do it
What I watched him do was take of cowling around key and both side of steering colum
Then realease airbag pins until air bag realeses unconnected airbag then undo steering wheel nut

Then put back cowling first as easier that way then bolt on wheel then connect air bag push back into place gently
The battery was not disconnected when this was done

145 Danish Krone (why don't the Danes use the Euro for prices?) equates to £16.77.
