I got my 2016 Touring a couple of weeks ago and I've noticed some natural wear to the steering wheel. However, it seems odd that on both of my cars with leather steering wheels, there are these random white specs that come up on certain parts of it.

I wouldn't want to try and scratch it off and cause more damage. I've tried using a leather cleaner on a microfiber cloth.

Does anybody have any ideas on what it might be?

Here are two photos: one with flash, one without.

Thanks in advance.

Mine has the same thing. Figured they were just chips in the steering wheel.

I had something similar on my steering wheel. Tried a product called "Dr. Martens Wonder Balsam" and it actually helped.

I'll give that a try and report back! I may post to some sort of detailing forum and see what they say then create a thread about it. It seems like this happens to people's steering wheels often. I just am particular about it.

Due to work and bad weather, I haven't had time to do any of this. Will report back as soon as I do.
