    I had alcantara in my A4 Avant.

    I had done over 83,000 miles in it when I changed to my new A3.

    I simply vacuumed the seats every few months as part of normal cleaning and they looked and felt as good as new at the end of the three years I had the car!

    Totally agree, had alcantara on my last 4 Audis and only vacuumed them, no problems at all, had one of them for seven years would not order anything else.
