Picked up my X6 but...

I just picked up my 2012 X6 on 2/11. Noticed two small imperfections on the steering wheel leather. One at 12 o'clock and the other at 7, which were probably scratched during the delivery process. I notified my CA and basically the response was nothing can be done to repair the scratches short of replacing the steering wheel. The scratches are small but I can feel them while driving and am worried that they will get worse with time.

Not sure I want to replace the steering wheel...Any suggestions or thoughts?

Have the dealer replace it for you at no cost to you if they damaged the leather

You spend $60K+ on the X6 and this is the best answer you get from the dealer???
