The first time I sat in a 10th gen civic LX, first thing I noticed was the cheap looking buttons on the steering wheel. I thought maybe cause it was the entry level model. Then the Si was released and it had the same buttons. I thought for sure the CTR would get something a little nicer. Obviously I was disappointed when I got to finally sit in the car in June.

Anyways, now I have the car and I’m considering swapping out the wheel for an alcantara-wrapped one. It got me thinking if I could change out the buttons somehow in the process. I really liked the wheel from my 15 Si.

Those buttons actually feel very nice to the touch. Another car that has the same style buttons is the fk2.

So does anyone know if it would be possible to somehow retrofit the buttons or steering wheel and maintain functionality of the buttons? It appears that most of the buttons are the same. Just thought it would be a cool idea and maybe others feel the same way about the buttons?

I agree with the the downgrade in quality. I am coming from an 08 Si and it isn't missing buttons like the Type R.. I wish there wasn't the blank spots on it. Oh well.
