    The problem with common sense, is that its not that common.

    OK, well i was given a tip from a fellow AS'er for clearing the bobbly bits off the Alcantara seats.....

    Use an electric shaver, I havent tried it yet but he gave me a demo on his seat and it looked pretty good!!

    Disposable BIC razors work well providing you are gentle and careful with your method.

    There is no other method we know of - just time and patience with the razor.

    To remove the bobbling then yes. If it needs cleaning as well, then an All Purpose Cleaner cut 10:1 and used very sparingly will work, but you must avoid scrubbing the finish too much or overwetting it, as both can lead to permanent damage. It must be treated gently!
