Best thing is not to wear jeans. They absorb SO much crap and put it right back on the seat. Adam's works great, but otherwise if you're wearing jeans you may want to bring a towel to sit on. This is true of any leather. Also, the buttons are rough on the leather too, and can catch, cause wear, etc. Good luck

Well, I'm not a Bro...but I guess you can not tell by my name, so I wont get too upset. It kind of like scotch guard for your car, they put it inside and out, and you get a 5 year warranty, they will fix your leather if you get marks on it

IDK..all my friend at the club and the dealership said never to use anything they make. I had a truck a long time ago that it messed up the dash, so I wont use it. Also if you have HUD, it can evaporate into you window and cause it not to reflect right

That's their Protectant stuff, I don't bother with that. Their cleaner is a soapy solution that works well in sun block on the door panels, denim staining on the leather and even paste wax on plastic.

Turtle Wax Leather Cleaner and Conditioner is what I use. It removes stains, and doesn't have a overpowering scent. Just follow directions.

Use a white rag when you use it, you'll be shocked at how dirty your seats are.

I've noticed its helped reduce wrinkles in my leather from my passengers too.
