Default Cayenne steering wheel finish

2012 Cayenne Turbo, with the multifunction wheel. I've approached a number of professionals including the dealer to solve this issue: the 3 spokes connecting the center boss to the leather rim are finished in a plasticized (Imron type) paint. While the wheel overall is in very good shape, the paint at 9 and 3, where the spokes connect with the rim and where my hands frequently rest, is worn and bubbled.

I'd like to refinish this area.

Short of replacing the steering wheel which seems a bit ridiculous, has anyone dealt with this problem?

thanks in advance.

I am not sure what you are implying might happen but I have had the steering wheel off my 991.2 and did not have any issues when I reinstalled it - no codes, no required resets, etc.

Just an experience changing a window switch. Wouldn't work until the dealer 'installed' the switch per VAG.

thanks

It occurs to me that disconnecting the battery before pulling the wheel is the determinative operation: if the battery is disconnected the car won't know anything is removed or replaced. No need for VAG update.
