Yeah, great plan. Put a cover on the wheel so the next owner can cut it off & enjoy the nice "new" wheel. GIVE ME a break.

Please sell your M-sport wheel to someone who will appreciate it. Its meant to be touched, thats the reason fro the softer and better gripping Nappa leather. Its the sole connection between you and your sensitive fingers, not meant to be covered.

Take the money you get for it and buy a cheaper Sportline or no line steering wheel. Then get your steering wheel cover. That plastic feeling thing NEEDS a cover on it.

Get one of these and put the stock wheel in a safe to preserve it.

So, mind is shiny in some places and dried out in others. Anyone got a favorite cleaning product that works every time?

Looks like body lotion or sunscreen covered mitts have been pawing the steering wheel for a while. That stuff is nasty and actually ate away the leather coating of my other car. You will need to get a good leather cleaner product on it pronto.
