Default Azaautowheel review. Just as good or better then Ledermanz.

I have been following Azaautowheel for a while now constantly looking at the quality of their steering wheels that their pictures seems to portray. The craftsmanship has always looked excellent so i decided to pull the trigger 2 weeks ago on a oem style rewrapped leather wheel with tri stiching. With owning a Ledermanz wheel it had some high standards to live up to. Upon recieving the wheel yesterday i can WOW. The craftsmanship is excellent and the wheel feels great. Id say the work is just as good if not better then Ledermanz. I can highly recommend him. Customer sevice is also excellent and only took 2 weeks to recieve. They can do any style custom to your wants. Thank you Andri Zakus Andrey for making the wheel for me… was $450 for whoever wants to know. No core needed includes upper and lower trim.

Is the light blue stitching still look almost white?

Looks good man! Glad they used purple stitching instead of blue!

Looks good! Been shopping for a new wheel. I could be in the minority here but not a huge fan of the leather wrapped lower trim. Does he provide options for that to remain OEM?

There's a couple of ways it's not stock like, though if that's bad or not comes down to the individual (mine is certainly not stock like):
-leather has no grain, like stock does
-it pinches in a lot where the sections meet-- stock does not
-leather wrapped lower trim
-thickness looks off, though could be my eyes playing tricks on me
-stitching doesn't go all the way to the vinyl, on back, like stock
-could be my imagination, but the M badge looks crooked.

Does he wrap the upper (button) trim, as well?

Looks good but the stitching colors are not the same. I think that's where everyone struggles and Tainik is the only one who's figured it out. Oh and Mike at Coby has the right colors too.

None of these guys can get the tri-stitch colour right. I've still yet to see a re-wrapped wheel nicer than a new stock one.
