Default Steering wheel swap in my 07

Not sure if anyone on here has done this. I saw it on another forum and loved it, so i did it to mine too. Here's some before and after pics. It's a relatively easy swap, but you've gotta do some soldering to make the CC work.

after:

Fits in nicely with the other bling bling you have interior wise.

Are you married? Be careful if you wear a ring. I was cleaning my '12 the other day and noticed a bunch of little dents in the aluminum on the left side of the wheel. Took me a second to figure out what when I'm hitting it with my wedding ring it's denting it.

Nice look BTW, definitely spruces it up.

How hard was it to swap out? The dents will eventually drive me nuts.

The swap itself was relatively easy. The wiring to make it work... not so much. It works now but I paid a shop to get it right.

Thanks for the tip about the ring.

Everything works. You have to buy a module for it and wire it up.
