With the vehicle nearing the 3 year mark, had to replace the steering cover. The MGA steering cover turned out to be a case of wasted money. The cover started peeling off in minute bits shortly after one year. Managed to somehow drag it on till last weekend when it was finally replaced. The art leather steering cover costed Rs 450 and matches beautifully with the all black art leather MGA seat covers. The design is similar to the MGA one I had earlier, but the fit and finish of this is much better. I was very finicky on getting an all black steering cover, preferably one with the small holes. The dual coloured ones (black/beige or black/red) are really a put off for me. Personal preference - no offence to others. Happy to have hit the bulls eye with this one.

The replacement of the OE wiper blades too were long overdue and got it done a couple of weeks back. Wiper blades from a no name brand (DLJM ?) that works beautifully cost me 400 bucks. Pictures follow.
