Most people on here that have had wheels re-trimmed used Royal Steering Wheels and have been very happy with the results.

B.M.CustomS used to offer OC Member discount on their re-trim but I've not seen so much positive feedback.

Update: The link in the Discount post above takes you to an ebay seller account that no longer exists. [-X

Cheers Dave,
The guy has asked if he can post a commercial advert on the fourm. He has offered an rx8 club offer of 270 including shipping with choice of type of leather, alcantara and stitching color. Not sure how this compares to the other options listed above as I couldn't seem to find a price.

I think that's a fair bit more than royal charge

B.M.CustomS used to charge "Club member price is £130+p&p" for a retrim
Royal offer everything from just a re-trim to a total change of shape/size

I had mine done by Royal Steering Wheels and I think it is one of the best things I've had done. 8)

I paid £200 both times at royal steering wheel, and that’s including having my wheel flat bottom, thicker, add thum grips etc to.

I've heard nothing but good reports re Royal Steering Wheels, both in the quality of the work and the pricing.

Getting them to do my wheel has long been on my "want" list - once I've actually got some fun money to play with...

Another vote for Royal Steering Wheels here. I've had two done by them and would use them again without hesitation. Quick tip - rather than send your steering wheel to them I bought an RX8 steering wheel from a breakers on ebay and got them to ship it to Royal. That was as cheap as sending my steering wheel to them and also meant that I wasn't without.
