Heated Steering Wheel on 2021 Model Y

Love the new heated steering wheel but boy does it get hot.

Has anyone else noticed how hot it gets ?

Maybe Tesla could give us a Hi and a Low setting.
I have noticed when I first hop in my car after preconditioning with the steering wheel on, it's quite hot (almost uncomfortable). Once I drive a little bit, the temperature seems to regulate itself to a comfortable level and stay that way the rest of the drive and I almost always leave it running.

I have never owned a car with a heated steering wheel before so I can't really compare. I will get sweaty hands though sometimes when driving which seems so bizarre to me (personal problems I guess!).
By that logic I would not need three settings on my seat heaters
or temperature controls on the climate system for heat or A.C.
yes, I am in that camp too. My X wheel gets too hot and it would be a nuisance to constantly cycle it on and off. I just turn it on before I drive along with letting the rest of the interior warm up and then hop in the car, turn it off and drive. Would be nice to have a software option to regulate it.
