What's with the steering wheel cover? Saving it for the next owner to enjoy?

Lol, I'm thinking of removing my carpet so not to wear it out. Will reinstall when I sell so new owner can enjoy the car more than I ever could.

You see black wheels on everything nowadays...and I think many are just tired of seeing it, mostly because you can't tell if its some cheapo plasti-dip or an actual paint job, in which the wheels seem to disappear regardless. Silver or even gunmetal looks great on CSL/Apex style wheels...your car though.
