I have never seen a plastic S/Wheel scratch but if your sure its plastic ......... then 303 Aerospace Protectant

I think the One had a leather look alike wheel, Julie One's is a Seven edition and it came with a uprated wheel to a leather "S" one, still only 2 big spokes instead of the 3 spoke type Smile

Did you buy the Aerospace 303 ?

Does the dashboard top need rejuvenating (like your black plastic parts) or just general cleaning i.e. dust etc ?

In that case dare i say it but the MINI Cockpit spray is excellent for that Wink or Einszett Cockpit Premium then give the Aero 303 a spray and it will seal it t.
