I’m sure I’m breaking a rule on originality, but I loved and had to search hard to find, an OEM S1 MS Wheel for my car, but didn’t get on with the red leather so have had it recovered.

The dimension and especially the grip thickness is great and most aftermarket are much thicker so didn’t want to just buy one of the later MOMO alternatives.

Anyway for interest, got it back today, a few pics, I could of gone oem style but black but my car is yellow so went with a bit of coordinated stitching and a 12 o’clock marker, plus alcantara just to make it a bit personal and fancy 😂

The paler grey is the oem wheel, the darker is my spare OMP wheel just to show grip width difference.

Snappy wheels did it. He is “famous” if you’re into RenaultSport cars, but does all sorts just where most know him.

I’ve seen a few pass through eBay recently, best with search
