M Steering Wheel Cover Peeling - which is the closest color vinyl wrapping?

My ///M steering wheel cover starts peeling What is the closest color of the vinyl wrap (matt color prefer) to use? Matt black or dark gray from 3M scotchprint 1080?

Can I just unscrew the 3 screws from behind the steering wheel and take off the wheel cover? (no air bag removal)

Please post some pictures if you are using the above color.

I am no intention doing the carbon fiber wrap for the wheel cover.

Please advise, thanks.

I'd like to know this too, mines only slightly peeling in some places - presume someone with a ring scratched it at some point, it's very minimal however it's annoying.
What about "patching" up rather than replacing

That is the HARD way. The RIGHT way is to remove the airbag first. It's no big deal and makes the exchange simple.

I have no problem taking off the airbag module. The only problem is to find the right color vinyl to match the existing.

I know I can get a new wheel cover but the paint will peel off again in a couple of years later. It does not worth for doing this way.
