Silver foil on steering wheel column peeling

Hi! The silver foil on the steering wheel column of my R350 is peeling/chipping on one side. Has anyone had this problem? I know quite a few of the Mercedes have interior paint chipping issues, but I have not seen any posts regarding the foil cover on their steering wheel columns. I doubt this would be covered by warranty since it is more of a cosmetic issue? Thanks!

You are definately not the 1st person with this problem. I have seem quite a few of these come through our doors. Mercedes-Benz 4 years50k warranty will cover this. If you are out of warranty, I can really help you out with pricing.

Sure, warranty covers that. It is a manufacturing defect.
