Default Help Identifying Steering Wheel



Hi, can anyone shed any light on this steering wheel? Is it ITALVOLANTI? I can't seem to find any photos of this italvolanti style with the audi logo.

Thanks, Alex

Can see pic now Alex , I have one on my 90q , they were an option at the time on quite a few VAG cars
Is that currently on a golf ?

Yes it's on my vw caddy mk1, it came on the truck and I haven't taken the tape off but I assumed it was damaged, I do like the wheel though so was thinking of buying one the same, or seeing if there was any possibility of a repair

any good leather man should be able to repair that.
Sometimes, it's cheaper to look outside the automotive world to get repairs done. I had an old steering wheel repaired once by a lady who specialised in leather jackets and I know someone had theirs done by somebody who's day job was leather upholstery for chairs.

Thanks I will look into it, am I right in thinking this is quite a rare wheel? I can't find any elsewhere online, am I just looking in the wrong places?

It was a period option for any of the audis in the 80s , mostly on B2s, there was a couple for sale recently , they mostly pop up on ebay in the states and in germany , they are normally cheaper to buy from the states , they pop up on forums at times aswell for sale ,, the 4 spoke version seems to be the most sought after , a 4 spoke one in mint condition just sold on ebay for 249 dollars, thats the highest ive seen one go for in a while, if you cant find them onlinetyour looking in the wrong places is right lol

Ah cool, yes I have seen a few of the four spoke wheels with audi branding on them but have yet to find even a picture of a 3 spoke audi branded wheel like this, i have looked through completed listings on various ebay sites as well as forums. Do you have a link to any threads/ listings of a wheel the same as this?
