My cover came in defective. I was wrestling it over the wheel, when I noticed that the sewing between gray and black was coming apart. I sewed it back together with regular polyester thread (back and forth several times for strength.)

I found that the material bulges around the spokes, I chose to just twist the cover around so that most of the slack is in the back. Also, the black material was wider than the gray, so it tended to bunch up more at the seam than the gray sections did.

This isn't the quality I expected, but it does look and feel nice.

It took me about 45 minutes, considering I did it in the length of one CD.

One side note, because the steering wheel is pieced together the way it is, the lower spokes of the wheel have sharp edges at the edges of the plastic. Not very ergonomic at all!
