Emira steering wheel centering stripe


Recommended Posts

Hi Guys,

I specced my Emira with an Alcantara wheel and was told by the dealer than a contrast centering stripe could be configured at a later date. In my case to match the tan leather interior.

Just been onto the new configurator and nothing comes up on the V6 manual steering wheel options... but crazily it's available on the V6 Automatic!

I emailed customer care about this and received the following reply...

"With relation to the steering wheel center mark, this is an option that you can choose when configuring however it is only available on the automatic. We had supply issues with the required parts, so unfortunately had to limit the availability of this just to the automatic option. I do apologise for any disappointment caused by this".

Lotus! Can you please look at this... surely this option change is not difficult to also configure with the manual! 

Cheers, Pete :>)

Yeah, it does sound a bit mad but that has been their company line for 9 months so we have to go along with it.

Maybe somebody on here finds companies that can just replace the strip with buggering up the rest of it. 

However, this is such a minor thing to worry about that it won't both me. 

Last pic I thought I saw the strip, albeit in the same colour, which is fine as it will stand out a bit for those who can't straighten a steering wheel. 😀

If it has an engine, I am there to thrash it.

Yes it's not a big thing at all... just would be a nice touch, even though I hope I never have the car so sideways I need to visually work out where the wheel centre is! 😆

It's been an issue since last Sept and Lotus haven't been able to resolve it with the supplier.  My dealer has quoted £300 to do centre marker and contrast stitching after delivery, so if you really want it then it's doable (and cheaper).

@TomE do you know if there will be a swap service, or drive-in / drive-out offered by your contact/dealer? I would like to get this done to mine and am ordering the car with a plain leather steering wheel on the assumption that it will be recovered in alcantara with coloured stitching.

All we know is that when they stop making this, we will be properly, properly sad.Jeremy Clarkson on the Esprit.

I don't know the details of how it gets done but it's Bell & Colvill if you want to ask them.  I'd guess your local dealer would also have access to a specialist trimmer.  Might be easiest to get the dealer to sort it between the car being delivered to them and you picking it up.
