    My wheel on the 430 is quite slippy/ glossy

    I've tried baby wipes But to no avail

    Car is fairly low miles at 90k and steering wheel is in good condition

    Any suggestions ?

    Damp dish cloth with a smidge of fairy liquid should do the job.

    Repeat with a stronger solution (or try Flash All Purpose cleaner) until all dirt has been removed, then wipe round with a cloth dampened in clean water. It's surprising how much dirt accumulates on steering wheels.

    Stronger solution of Fenwicks Caravan cleaner will do the job. Apply with spray bottle and leave to soak for 4-5 minutes, re-apply and rinse with damp cloth.

    Is it leather? I just clean mine with leather stuff (will have a look what it is when I get home if important) and it seems fine.
