Seriously? What if? Um, I clean it up and never, ever give it another thought. It's leather, plastic, nylon and metal.

I just got rid of my M Sport (2011) and got a new non M. The looks were fine, but the wheels were non-stop hassles. I would pay extra to not have the M Sport package!

Looks great, enjoy it!

Steering wheel leather question

Howdy. A few weeks ago, I started noticing a rough spot on my wheel. Now, there are 3 of these very rough patches. I haven't scratched the leather with anything. Any ideas?

Thanks!
