Looking at the wheel very, very closely I notice a few scratches around the green, red, yellow buttons. When I first tried to use the d-pad for Project Cars it isn't wanting to be pressed!! I literally have to press the right directional button hard, to hard where it actually selects the down button:-(. Don't know if I need to return it or trade it for a thrustmaster F1 add on.
When I got this wheel I was immediately happy by how much more realistic it looks and the very noticeable increase in weight which makes it look and feel as if it is a real steering wheel (just slightly smaller and with a plastic quick release.) Since this rim is completely round and the center of this wheel is much thinner and smaller it makes it easy to grab at any angle and you can just let the wheel slide through your hands back to center (just like in a real car) and you can also do hand over hand or whatever method you use when making tight, fast turns. My only disappointment was the leather feels very thin and hard and the stitching is also very hard and rough and can sometimes itch/hurt your thumbs depending on how tightly you're holding the wheel. I was quite disappointed the leather wasn't as supple looking as the Logitech G29 (which I've never felt but from pictures it looks thicker since it's perforated) I put mink oil on the leather a few times and that seems to have made the leather a bit richer and it does feel a bit smoother and more comfortable however it'll never feel any softer since the leather itself is so thin however you could just modify a lace-on or wrap-on steering wheel cover onto this wheel or just wear gloves but for me I got used to it and have a blast using it every time I race. Aside from the looks the best part of this wheel rim is the buttons. The positioning is perfect, and click is very pronounced and realistic, and there's just the right amount for the console necessities (since on PC you should probably be using a button box anyway if you need to map many commands.) To make things easier I cut small black pieces of electrical tape and labeled them with a silver sharpie to correspond to all of the Xbox controller's buttons which saves a few dollars instead of buying the custom stickers.
It was also very important to me that this wheel is thinner depth wise, probably by an inch and a half to two inches than the TX rim as I'm using a Playseat Challenge which doesn't offer any forward/backward wheel deck movement so this allows my arms to be a bit more straight out and less cramped and at an angle like they were with the TX wheel which is a huge and much needed improvement for me.
At first I was going to save up for the Ferrari 599 alcantara rim but this wheel is often so affordable for used ones (which my used one look brand new and never opened) I decided I would go with it and am happy I did. However if you're going to pay full price for a new one you may want to consider paying just another 30 dollars more and getting the larger and nicer alcantara wheel. I may add the larger, D-shaped, alcantara wheel and F1 rim to my collection in the future but right now I've very happy doing all of my racing on this wheel rim.
The TM 28 Leather wheel rim is a must have for anyone who has the cheap plastic TX rim and also worth considering if you're tired of the rubber grips on many of the other Thrustmaster wheel rims. This wheel rim looks great, feels higher quality than the rubber and plastic ones, I prefer the black Thrustmaster badging in the center over the Ferrari logo, the buttons feel professional, it makes sim racing easier, more realistic, and most importantly more fun, all of which make you a better sim racer.
Now if you already own a Thrustmaster Ferrari GTE Wheel Add-on, this wheel is exactly the same as that except instead of rubber it has leather and instead of the red center indicator it has a yellow one. So I don't know that this is a must buy for you guys, but I can guarantee you would probably prefer the leather feel over the rubber.
The only con I can come up with is that it is a 7/10ths replica, but that's the case with all the official Thrustmaster wheels so I can't take a star off for that. It just takes some getting used to =).

It could use a few more buttons, but not a deal breaker.
