Wow just wow! The results are amazing! So much that if you hadn't said a thing I would've believed you had purchased a new steering wheel! I'm bookmarking this thread and trying this!

My wheel is fine as far as leather condition but super glossy. Has been driving me crazy - enough that I have thought about spending the few hundred $$ for a new one.

I tried this and it worked - it may damage the leather a little, but if done sparingly and infrequently (i.e. maybe 2x-3x or so at most over the life of the car) it may be ok...since buying a new wheel was an option for me, i decided to risk the damage and try this out.

My wheel looks like OP's - haven't reconditioned yet but will when it dries...looks almost new....will take pics when i recondition, but honestly will look just like OP's. Also did it on the gear shift and it looks great as well.

What SC_TR0JAN said -- it's basically a very fine sandpaper, so just be careful! You're removing grime and buildup so it's fine.

I used a magic eraser on my wheel, ended up wiping off this black stuff that looked like the previous owner put on to hide the leather fade. I hate discovering things about your car after you have owned it for a while.

i also did this
AMAZING, thank you so much for the write up, Only thing as a word of advise keep the majic eraser on the wet side, while doing mine, I let it dry and it just left little pieces on the steering wheel.
