Do you have the manual transmission? The steering wheel and brake lever look great, but not the shift knob.

My car is 2016 which I bought last year CPO. With only three years and roughly 27K miles when I bought it, the manual shift knob was already showing signs of wear where the palm of your hand makes contact with the knob.

Fortunately, the knob hasn't got any worse because I don't drive with my hand always on the knob, but a driver who always drives with one hand on the lever and one on the wheel could wear it our pretty quickly. The material seems softer and less durable than what was wrapped around the manual shift knob on my E46.
