Anyone else’s steering wheel peeling off yet?
Mine is in a terrible state after about 4 months use,

My dealer has already got a replacement wheel on order for me,
They didn’t even bother looking at it,
I think this is a major problem
And have heard that they are going to proper leather for the wheels now…

I've not got any problems with mine so far, done about 2500 miles. My steering wheel is black, what colour is yours.
Cheers :)

Exactly the same problem
3500 miles in 4 months and the outer skin of the white steering wheel is peeling
There has been no harsh cleaning, frantic clenched-hand driving or biting in frustration!! In fact the rest of the wheel, apart from the one section delaminating, looks like new.

I took it into the dealer last week. They photographed the wheel and sent off a warranty claim.
Hopefully I will get a replacement soon because it looks a mess.
I would be more than happy with a new wheel covered in dead cow rather than animal-free petrochemical byproducts if that's what it takes.
How come Tesla can make white plastic steering wheels that last?

mine is a 'white' wheel,
which is more like a mottled grey now,
will email the dealer to see where the new wheel is...

Just swapped ID.4 to ID.Buzz same steering wheel but we have stuck with Black. ID.4 had done 38k miles and wheel had no damage.
