It really IS a beautiful wheel. I documented the scuffs, but once installed, you won't notice them. Plus, you'll be adding your own fingernail scuffs with all the fun this wheel will make you want to have.
I replaced the wheel in my Odyssey with an Acura wheel, and every time I start the engine and grab the wheel, it puts a big smile on my face. Its amazing how a leather wheel enhances the experience.
