2018 Leaf replace leather cover on steering wheel?

Wed Apr 11, 2018 6:13 pm

Totaled my 2011 Leaf recently :( and am thinking about getting a 2018 to replace it. There are no S level models for sale within 100 miles of me so it looks like an SV will have to do. I don't want leather on the steering wheel though, so I was wondering if anyone knows if it's possible to replace the wrap (if that's what it is) with one from an S model?

You can always put on an aftermarket wrap but it will always look aftermarket. Just learn to love the leather. My B has leather and it is fine. SO DID MY 2013 SL. The only thing I hated about my Leaf's was the wheel heater. The leather was fine.
2012 Cayenne Red SL traded for:
2013 Pearl White SL Premium
Traded for a Cirrus White 2014 Mercedes B (totaled)
2016 Urano Gray eGolf SEL w/ drive assist
Loved the VW but it sat too low for my old body

If anyone finds a nice, thin, comfortable wrap, I'd like to know about it.
