I've used dr leather to clean it and then once in a blue moon I coat it in primal detail taurus very thinly then buff it off and it seems to keeps it matt and fresh for a long time (on both same m sport wheel and a 10 year old vw golf)

Well, I've been speaking to Darryl (Dr Leather) recently, and they've run some test on the Angelwax product with their own, to see if there's any incompatability and it turns out there may well be - resulting in a potentially greasy residue being left on the wheel.

They've reformulated some cleaner and tested on their BMW wheels, and looks promising - so I'll report back shortly!

Great news. Definitely keeping tabs on this.

Received my "custom" batch of wipes today, so I'll give the wheel a going over when I get to work tomorrow morning - which should give it plenty of time to completely dry out before I drive it again - and will report back.

Can't fault Darryl's willingness to help out on this one.

Well, the new formula wipes definitely seem to be improving the situation. The wheel feels less greasy/sticky, although is still a little shiney - but didn't get any worse after driving, so suspect this is just normal wear.

I'm going to clean it again this evening, as each time it seems to get a little better, so may well improve appearance a bit more too.

One thing that's become apparent in this little journey of ballache so far, is that only use 1 product on the leather on this wheel, as chemical interactions have definitely played a part in things.

Thanks for the updates, sounds promising. I have only used the Dr Leather wipes intentionally to stop it interfering with other products. Please keep this thread updated cause I live with the same frustration as you on a daily basis If you notice an improvement then I will contact Darryl.

Forgot to get round to updating this thread. I have been using the Dr Leather wipes with the new formulation using exactly the same technique and cloths as previously. After a few weeks of general use I can positively say that the new formulation appears to have made a huge difference to the steering wheel in my BMW in comparison with the previous wipes, after a week of use the wheel is a lot less greasy and the finish is a lot more matt. I was intending to take a before/after comparison photo but I forgot to take a before!

Many thanks to Darryl at Dr Leather for efforts.
