    Q: Thicker Alcantara Steering Wheel and RS yellow centre marker

    Question: I've ordered option CLA (thicker Alcantara Steering Wheel) and but it's come thicker, but without the centre yellow marker that is standard in RS.  Has anyone else also got the same thing happening - Porsche are saying that's the way it comes???

    Can't help you with the question, but isn't that a stupid answer? Your the buyer of an exclusive high-end car. If you want a yellow mark on your steering wheel, and you ask them for it, shouldn't they just give you the price?

     Joost,

    Jay is referring to the yellow 12 o´clock marker that comes standard on the RS steering wheel. Obviously, it is not included on the thicker steering wheel option.


    Re: Q: Thicker Alcantara Steering Wheel and RS yellow centre marker

    That is a nice looking steering wheel and I believe that I saw them online about a year ago at a reseller with the stripe on it.

     

    Just 2 points - if for some reason it is not mounted just right or the steering is off somehow, it would be irritating as hell to drive down the road with the yellow not perfectly in the middle, and you could always tape it off and spraypaint/ink it yourself.

    I've spec'd the same CLA option on my incoming RS. My dealer specifically told me that the thicker wheel would have the yellow stripe similar to the standard wheel. I've also seen pics of the CLA wheel with the stripe (spokes are now black as well). Seem like a communications conflict. I'll know for sure in about a month.Smiley

    This is supposed to be the CLA wheel

    Thanks for the replies.

     

    Hi FFaust, is it possible to get a close-up pic of how the yellow is attached to the wheel (is it sewn on / tapped on etc) - then I can start to think of 'after-market' fixes .... depending on what dealer says.

    Does any one know where can I get hands on one to order. My dealer could not order one for me yet.

    @ Jay, sorry I can't help you as this is not my car, it is a picture that I found online. If I recall from RS' that I've seen, the yellow band is sewn between the two black sections. IOW, it is not sewn on top but rather is sewn as the continuation of the black.
