mk1 172 steering wheel question

  2005 Audi A3 3.2 Quattro

is the steering wheel in a mk1 172 supposed to have a suede like finish (like the alcantara on the seats) or is it supposed to be smooth?

Ive been reading reviews etc and a few mention the nice "fuzzy" steering wheel.

Mine is smooth?

but then if it wore off the waer would be uneven, and if that was the case wouldnt the seats wear smooth too.

Just glad to know im not the only one with a smooth steering wheel

It was never like the alcantara on the seats. It was quite a weird texture that is pretty hard to describe in words. It doesnt really wear as much as rub smooth! If that makes any sense! Mine is also smooth now
