    Welcome.

    A few on here have vinyl wrapped the plastics near the buttons. Not sure on the leather bits.

    You could sand the wheel and use a leathers dye but it would just rub off best thing to do is replace the wheel

    A replacement Leather steering wheel is the way to go, IMHO.
    However I'm not sure that any Vec C came with a 4 spoke leather steering wheel (as opposed to 4 spoke plastic ones), but if they did someone on here will know.
    If you do buy a leather 3 spoke, you will have to buy a 3 spoke airbag as well, but you can also sell the old 4 spoke one.
    The 2 important things about the airbag are, is it 3 or 4 spoke AND if it has 1 or 2 connectors.
    The only way to find out if yours is a 1 or 2 connector airbag is to have a look behind the airbag.
    There is a how2 on here about doing this.
    http://www.vectra-c.com/forum/showth...l-removal-swap
    You need to be a paid up member to see the How2's.
    Whilst the 2 spokes of the steering wheel with the buttons are interchangable between 3 and 4 spoke wheels, the covers on the 2 lower spokes of the 4 spoke are not interchangable, and you will need the 3rd spoke cover as well.
    The paint on the button spokes can be removed, they can then be repainted or left naked, or buy new ones.

    Oh, and I see (from the RHS stalk) that you dont have the onboard computer (BC) enabled either, which probably means that your central display has 2 buttons (called a TID) and no fuel consumption display.
    The display can be changed (to a GID) so you can use the BC and see the fuel consumption.
    You will also be also to see bulb failure (and other) messages on the central display.
    How to here:

    You will need to be paid up member to see the How2's.
