Just want to let you know that wood steering wheel is now available to order (as a stand alone option) on 2003 S60s, V70s and S80s; same option as offered in the Overseas Delivery orders. Don't know cost, yet, when I find out I will let you know.

Re: WOOD steering wheel available, now, on regular US-bound cars (mike_c70)

This wood wheel is in a '99 T5 S70



it looks real nice, but i think it would get very hot sitting in the sun.

IS it available for the 70 series? If so, do you happen to have a part number? Thanks.
This info was only for the new Volvos.

You can get a wood steering wheel from your Retailer (for the older 70 series), don't know the part #.

Is this the steering wheel that is all wood, not like the one on the S70? I test drove an XC90 the other day with one where the whole wheel was wood.

Not sure, yet, but I doubt it.

Leather is also nice, I have the wood on the dash, wood on the wheel would look pretty sweet if its the same. http://********************/smile/emthup.gif

speaking of steering wheels, is there any sort of leather heated one that will fit my 1994 940?
Sounds pricy! http://********************/smile/emwink.gif But a great winter idea. I've never seen such a creature on the market... Patent Pending!!! http://********************/smile/emwink.gif

I personally do not like the wood steering wheels that they offer as a dealer installed option. They are pricey at $400 and the back is actually leather(only the front is "wood", if real). The new wheels that the factory is offering as an option on the xc90 looks great.

I have an xc70 being built around12/20. Do you think Icould request the wood wheel. Also , another form is showing an XC70 with new wheels? Any info would be appreciated. They look like the same wheels on the XC90 with premium package.

Don't know what it looks like...sorry! But either way, it's got to look pretty nice and enhance the car!

If your car is going to get built BY THE 20th, then, yes, you can request teh wood steering wheel. If the LDOC has passed, then you are out of luck or ask your Retailer to order you another one.

Who are you workimg with? Cherry Hill Volvo?

Yannis, Thanks for the info. This will be my 5th Volvo. 3 Cherryhill,2 Langhorne. Hope I did not make a mistake opting for the 2003 when the 2004 will be probably be available 3 or 4 months after my delivery. Ordered the xc70 with all options except , on call. Unfortunetly for me, I have traded anumber of times in just one model year. Ouch!
