White spots on steering wheel

I too have the white spot problem. I have an X3 with heated steering wheel. I just had it in for service which included replacing plastic trim between steering wheel and airbag. When I picked the car up from BMW is when I noticed the spots. There are a lot of them and the dealer told me it is normal wear and tear and not covered under warranty. I laughed at him, reminded him that the car only has 30,000 miles and challenged him to find the same results on any car in his lot. He couldn't. I have been driving cars for 40 years now and have never seen this. He also told me that after a time the color coating on leather will wear away. Once again, I laughed, but more of a I'm going to hurt youy laugh and told him of my 14 year old honda with leather interior that is perfect. The honda has almost 200,000 miles.
