sharpie might work well but would be temporary and maybe come off on fingers. You could try touch up paint or nail polish as a better alternative.

I have the same issue and have tried the touch up paint marker. Its temporary as the oil/acid on your hands will eventually wear it off.

if it bothers you a lot, steering wheels are easily replaceable or you may be able to find a cheap wheel with buttons at a junk yard and just swap over the buttons.

You should see mine. The volume up and next track are completely worn out. I was thinking nail polish. But to me, unless I want to make mine a show car, I don't really care. It's all "meh" to me.

Didn't find any for my model. Do they go by a different name?
