The best solution for me is to wear driving cloves I have never worn driving cloves always thought they were a bit gay. This is the 1st time I have had such negative experience with a steering wheel.
BMW tends to use better leather than most companies. BMW's leather is thicker full grain leather where others use thinner, sanded, stamped, and processed top grain leather.

If you have leather interior remove one of your back seat headrest's and untuck the leather at the base of it. You'll see that it's very high quality.
