    Hi Guys,

    Firstly I'd like to say hello... I'm pretty new to this forumn and extremly new to Detailing!

    So after picking up an 08 plate A3 Sportback back in July I promised myself I would give it the care and attention it needed. Looking at the pictures on this site and Polised Bliss (and other sites - sorry hope I've not offended anyone for not mentioning them!!) I have fallen in love with the results you guys get and am working towards getting kitted up with products and start on making my A3 gleem!

    I traded in a Leon Cupra R for the A3, I loved the Leon to bits but after 90k miles and nearly 8 years of owership it was time to move on. One of the things that used to annoy me on the Leon was how shinny the steering wheel had become. When I picked up the A3 the steering wheel felt quite nice and had like a dull matte look. However after 4 months of ownership and 5k miles the steering wheel is turning slightly shinny. Can anyone recommend a product for me to use on the leather steering wheel to return it to it's orginal condition ?

    My A3 has full leater so I guess I'd be able to use the same product on the seats / trims etc?

    I do feel a bit cheeky for asking as I've not had the time to spend into looking up the answer for myself so sorry about that but I wanted to make sure I sorted the wheel out sooner rather then later.

    Thanks peeps :eek:)
