Hello fellow Mercedes-oholics :angel

I'm considering refreshing the steering wheel as the paint seems to have rubbed off along the edge of the rim and it looks slightly tatty. While the interior is Alpaca Grey, 838U, the steering wheel is a darker shade of grey and so I wonder if anyone knows what is the paint code / color? The car is 2004 A209, that said the steering wheel & color is shared across multiple models from then-current Mercedes offering.

Guidance much appreciated - thank you!

No idea. Maybe a good leather shop could help you. Mine is black all leather and about a year ago I recovered it over the existing leather. Looks good. Better grip too.

Thanks gorj, looks great - and I like the red stitching, very tasteful!

In the meantime I kept looking to resolve my problem and I found a shop in Germany which I think might be the answer - it appears the color is alpaca grey. I dropped them a note as I'm also looking to respray lower parts of dashboard and want to ensure their "cream" color is a match.

Thanks gorj - I'll report as soon as I've feedback, and if it works out I'll spin up separate threads to cover the "renovation".

Thank you Benzyle, the picture doesn't show but the paint is damaged on the wheel, it's a couple shades of grey as the PO must have been passionate about cleaning it - too often perhaps. 馃槙
