Question about alcantara

Hey all, i have a quick question for anyone who has alcantara either partially wrapping their steering wheel or fully. How does it hold up? Is it necessary to wear driving gloves so it doesnt absorb oils from your hands (that would be kinda stupid imho)? Would keeping perf. leather be the wiser choice as i plan on holding onto the car for like 3 years?

Any input is greatly appreciated.

over time you'll start to see the material really takes a beating. i'm sure that there is proper cleaner for it. Jump onto Ebay and check out the e46 ZHP. you can see what the material looks like after about 5 years.

its crap! my perf steering wheel lasted about 18 months even though i cleaned it regularly, if you wear gloves it would probably last longer.
