    I came across this cover by accident while on Ebay this afternoon. I'm not a big fan of buying from China but for the price it might not be a bad deal. Has anyone come across another alternative?

    I don't get it!? What's the point? Is this a steering wheel cover? If so, why?! The factory Prime Advanced steering wheel, as the British say, is lovely, comfortable and sized perfectly. The only thing that might change is creating a gap at 6 o'clock for those who like to hang their hands there on long trips. But this is not a deal breaker. Otherwise, if this is a steering wheel cover, it's a waste of money. And this is from a guy who put real leather steering wheel covers on all his Alfa Romeo plastic steering wheels.

    Actually, it is not a steering wheel cover. It is a piece of horrible green or black plastic to cover up the white plastic that is under the steering wheel.

    If you have the adv then the steering wheel is heated. Can you cover that up and still have it work?

    I would want to make it into a 4-spoke steering wheel, back to my 07 prius style. I find it easier to control.

    If you make that part lime green, you might as well turn every toilet bowl in the car lime green!

    I don't know why anyone would want to put an Alfa Romeo steering wheel into a Prius.

    I actually need a steering wheel cover. The Prime steering wheel has a very thin outer layer, which is coming off where I rub it getting in. Toyota says there's nothing they will do about it.
