Who else has a purple steering wheel?

So I'm trying to find out which models come with this 'fabulous' purple steering wheel ring bling.

I have a 70th anniv edition. The inner chrome ring is definitely silver chrome, while the larger outer ring is definitely purple.

In the daytime the ring looks like a brushed chrome color, and sometimes when the light hits it right, it looks purple.

Taking a high res photo with flash in the dark shows its true colors. There's no way this is a reflection of my shirt or my interior colors.

Re: Who else has a purple steering wheel?

Did you see if there is protective plastic on it for shipping?

Yeah I've looked a few times. Even tried taking a toothpick and did some light prying but couldn't find anything. I took the plastic off the wheel myself upon delivery and nothing else was purple. Cant see anything plastic-like & no creases or blemishes are visible either, just shiny purple metal.

Re: Who else has a purple steering wheel?

Mine has a little bit of a purple-ish shade to it also. I like it. Not nearly as strong as in the OP's picture though. My WK2 is a Overland 4X4 V8 with saddle/black interior.
