Steering wheel issues.

WTF BMW ? Did I white knuckle corners too hard or too much cleaning?

Napa leather will wear out faster than Dakota, what kind of cleaner and conditioner do you use?

The BMW one. I used the auto glym to first clean it as the wheel was really shiny. Did that last summer with no issues. This spring while just doing a light cleaning it seams like there was a lot of dirt build up on the left side. I thought maybe from the oil/cream and dirt from human hands. Maybe it just wore out. Now I have an excuse to get an m5 or sport wheel and wifey can't complain !!! Lol

Do you wear rings, such as a wedding band that has some texture to it that could be scuffing the leather?

Only on the forum/ebay maybe, the amount dealer quoted me for steering wheel upgrade is simply obscene.

You should be able to get a leather restorer to fix that for you
