I had a wood trimmed wheel on an ML350 and thought it would be slippery but actually found it "grippier" than some soft, smooth leathers.

I am also looking in to getting this for my car too. I'm not too pleased with the sport steering wheel. It's way too thin and feels cheap IMO.

I prefer leather or that alcantara suede. It does look good though. How much is that shit anyway? I guess the real question you really have to ask yourself is it worth the extra money?

Yeah car is too new. Wait it out, I have a feeling there will be a ton of parts coming out with in the next year. Check out the M-sport steering wheel its pretty sweet. You may want to go that route.
