Leather Steering Wheel for a 05?

I really want the leather steering wheel and the extra radio controls.
Does anyone have an 05 that has this? I have only seen them on the 06
which leads me to believe that If I bought one then the harness wouldnt
be there to support it.

Anyone have any info on it?

This is what I want:

What steering wheel do you have? I have a 2005 G6 GT and have the same one you've pictured. I am confused as to why you got a different steering wheel if you have an 05 G6 GT.

I will go take a picture of mine and show you. Mine is a GT but it is different because I didnt get the leather seats. It only has the cruise controls ont he wheel. It's basically the same wheel minus the leather and radio controls. An easy fix (just swap out the wheel w/ a leather one) if
the harness is there for the radio. If not then the controls wont work.....
Is there anyone on the site who works at the Pontiac factory?

I don't have leather interior, but I still have the same leather steering wheel you showed. All the GT's I test drove had the same steering wheel, whether they had radio controls and leather seats or not. I'm confused!!

for 2006 Pontiac.com says:

Steering wheel, leather-wrapped rim, mounted radio controls
1 - Included and only available with front bucket, leather-appointed seats.

So it should only come with the leather package....????
Anyway here is my steering wheel.

Hey Robyn can you look at your sticker and see
if it was listed as an option maybe? I cant find anything that shows
what comes on the GT versus the V6 for 2005.

Just to let you know if you were to find a new steering wheel the 2 wires to radio needed to make the radio switches work WOULD NOT be in the wiring harness.

When I bought my 05 G6 GT the leather wrapped steering wheel was an option. I think it was around $235. Looking at the website specifications for the 06 shows the leather wrapped steering wheel as an option for all models as part of the sports package.

Package Sport: includes steering wheel radio controls, leather wrapped 3-spoke steering wheel, shifter knob and parking brake release handle

I still had my window sticker in the paperwork and the steering wheel was listed to the right of the sticker where it has the additional things on the car. Like the Monsoon system, the shiney wheels, etc..... It took me a while to find a dealership near me that had what I wanted.
