    I'm waiting on this with full MF and paddle shift. (stitching colour to order if required and can have half carbon fibre/half leather as well if preferred)

    I’d really like grey too match my seats but wondering if it will discolour from dirt/grease of my hands

    If it does and you can't avoid dirt rubbing on it, I've found Autoglym Interior Cleaner very effective at removing grubby marks. Used it when, for some unknown reason, your car comes back from a dealer and the technician has somehow managed to touch your headlining / sun visor with dirty hands :mad:

    Alternatively, black stitching, as obviously, these wheels are an essential :laugh:

    What's that actually out of @Shredder?
    I have the flat bottom, flappy paddle wheel with the same shame horn, but it's not as fan dangled as yours.

    As @Fish says custom really. I sent my new wheel to them and just told them how i wanted it. I have run it for a long time now and its really good. no problems at all + the bonus of paddles when needed :thumbsup:

    @Tourershine @Pauly ... My understanding is that the wheel starts life as a Golf MK7 Highline and then are custom re-shaped and trimmed to order. They are made so that the centre comes straight out of your standard Highline MFSW and plugs straight into the new wheel, so you retain the T6 OEM Highline centre look and buttons but with flat bottom, paddles and perf leather (or however you want it trimmed). I haven't got it yet but the pic I've posted is what I told them I wanted. They do all the other trim options too, including a real carbon split rim and alcantara etc

    If I bought a GTI or GTD wheel, would the buttons be a straight forward swap?

    Looks smart @Olly T6 . You may need to swap the loom on the back of the air bag with the one from your original airbag (easy to swap) . I did to get full function on the controls and paddles :thumbsup:

    @Skyliner33 they are custom orders from Leighton Vans. They've literally just finalised their manufacturing supply chain and had their first samples through. (pic of carbon split rim in my last post above was one of the samples they had made up). There is nothing on their website yet.

    The first custom orders are being done now. I've literally just ordered yesterday. The guy running the process at Leighton is: adam@leightonvans.co.uk

    Oh, and apparently they are direct plug and play (as my post above, your wheel centre plugs in) So no mods, coding, air bag faffing etc

    I've got a std highline steering wheel no ACC but I do have cruise control and it's a manual so no need for flappy paddles ...what flat bottom wheel is best for a straight swop

    Think you just need to match the buttons, just check on eBay
    Mine is the same as yours @T6180 apart from dsg
