OEM Wood Steering Wheel, AMG Steering Wheel & Air Bag for Sale

I have two different 'upgraded' OEM steering wheels and one airbag to sell. These are designed for the R230 (2003-2012 SL) and the W209 (2003-2009 CLK Coupes and Cabrios). These will fit other models for certain, as I had the same style in my R129 (90-02 SL) for a while.

OEM Wood & Leather. This wheel is in beautiful and very useable condition. The wood is 100% free of any type of flaws. This is a rarity as so many of these wheels have cracks in the finish. Not this one, it is flawless. I am quite picky and observant with items that I am selling, I look hard to find faults to disclose. The only thing remotely negative I can say about this beautiful upgrade is that the leather at the 3 and 9 positions (f you’re looking at an analog clock) seems a bit drier then the rest of the wheel. Usually when this occurs, the leather becomes discolored. That is not the case with this wheel, the entire thing is a very rich black. Being Black, it will nicely match any interior color combination! I just treated it with Automotive Leather Conditioner and Protector. It looks quite presentable. Pricing is best offer as I want to be fair rather then greedy.

OEM AMG Wheel. This one is in absolutely beautiful condition. The leather is a rich and black in color. Being black, it will compliment virtually any interior color combination offered in the CLK! It looks simply wonderful. Oftentimes these AMG wheels suffer from stained and dirty silver shift indicators (the silver circles on the front of the wheel). These were a bit dirty when I got the wheel but I carefully cleaned them with a firm micro-brush and they now look like new. The biggest issue with the AMG Wheels is the paddles shifters themselves. After years of use, they become sticky as their laminate coating starts to wear off. To be honest, this wheel suffered from that when I got it. I used a fine resurfacing tool to remove the old coating and I then reapplied it and it is a perfect match to the original factory silver color. As you can see in the photos, it looks 100% original and most certainly beautiful! I just today treated it with Automotive Leather Conditioner and Protector to ensure a rich feel and lustrous appearance. Adding an original AMG wheel to your car is a fantastic upgrade OR use it as a direct replacement to your existing damaged AMG unit. Pricing is best offer as I want to be fair rather then greedy.

Airbag. This particular airbag is in beautiful and quite nice / useable condition. The chrome Mercedes Star is still as perfect and glittering as ever. The prior owner converted the buttons along the sides (that control the OBC, stereo, phone, etc) to a satin silver finish for a sportier look. I can take them back to a matching black for free or I can get all new factory buttons (in your choice of color) for you for an additional $60 if you prefer. This bag was never deployed or damaged. In fact, it was removed from a vehicle that was never in an accident. It was removed simply to install a custom steering wheel. I just treated it with Automotive Shine and Protector. It looks fantastic. Pricing is best offer as I want to be fair rather then greedy.
