2013 328i Sedan, Luxury Line: Leather Steering Wheel?

I leased a 328i sedan for my wife today, mineral grey metallic, luxury line/prem. pkg/tech pkg/heated seats. Window sticker says that luxury line has sport leather steering wheel. So with all the test driving/negotiating/lease signing activities I wasn't paying much attention to the actual material of the wheel. But after I drove the car home, I realized that the wheel feels and looks plastic-y (comparing to the real leather of 2007 X3 with M sports package I drive now).

Am I missing or misinterpreting something? If you have 328i with luxury package, does it have leather steering wheel?

(I will post photos of window sticker and steering wheel tomorrow)

Yes, it has a leather steering wheel. All 3ers have a leather steering wheel.

btw - you posted in the E9x forum, not the F30 forum.

Yes, I gave it closer inspection today, and the steering wheel is indeed wrapped in leather. It just feels strange to the touch, not the feel I used to.
