Anyone else have theirs fading / peeling? I'll try to get pictures of it, but combined with the Acura logo chrome peeling... it looks like crap.

I've wrapped my other car's steering wheel trim in 3M 1080 matte black vinyl, and wanted to something similar to fix this issue.


Can you remove the trim without removing airbag and/or whole steering wheel?

Also, has anyone rewrapped the leather or thrown a PROPER cover? (none of this autozone furry wheel cover BS, no offense)
Found this as a few of the 3 series guys had decent luck with this brand: https://www.aliexpress.com/item/XuJi-Dark-Brown-Genuine-Leather-Hand-stitched-Car-Steering-Wheel-Cover-for-Acura-MDX-2009-2012/32782306750.html?trace=msiteDetail2pcDetail

Apparently decent leather, adds some thickness to the wheel. Might be a tough install, but looks close to OEM and you can contact the vendor for color/thread/material options. $40+ bucks, not too bad as opposed to reupholstering the wheel for probably $150-200.

The center of my 2009 MDX still looks good/like new, no issues...I did wrap the actual steering wheel with a product called 'WHEELSKINS' which adds better grip, overall thickness & durability, + added looks to the OEM steering wheel IMHO (only downside is that it takes a LONG time to install these...like anywhere from a couple hours long to 5 hours!!!- I have added them to all my three cars...

Not bad. I'm looking more to aim for OEM fit like in the picture:


I messaged the vendor about getting a black leather or black suede cover. It comes with all the necessary tools/thread, but I'll probably buy a spool of Amann Serafil 1000 from JPM Supply for an off-white stitch. Hoping it comes out nice.

I also have a decent amount of spare 3M 1080 satin black, which will redo the steering wheel trim and airbag emblem. Will post results once all is here and done.
