Alcantara steering wheel

Does anyone have experience with these refurbished M Performance steering wheels on EBay? They're OEM wheels that are re-wrapped in Alcantara. They look decent in the pictures. I'm debating on going this route only because I'm not so sure I want a red stripe, and this one is heated, which isn't an OEM option from what I understand.

Thank you for sharing that. Do you have any experience living with Alcantara wheels? I've heard mixed reviews about upkeep and how they feel when it's hot and your hands are a little sweaty

I have an Alcantara wheel in my '06 E46 330ci ZHP - it's not a daily driver (only 60k miles), but I keep my hands clean! Driving gloves will help.

Sonax has a great cleaner, but a damp microfiber cloth (or a dash of Woolite in water) will help keep it nice.
