    I've got an 8p1 with half leather, with the middle insets being a whitish colour cloth. Trouble is it obviously gets dirty very quick and the cleaning foam i've used has left horrible watermarks. Does anyone know of any quick fixes, or is it buy a steam cleaner until i can afford full leather?

    AutoBrite do a cleaner for Alcantara (which IIRC is what you get on Audi half leather seats).

    Thanks mate, but i'm pretty sure it's not alcantara. It's a cloth material, but the top is almost woven and the stains seem stuck in the layer beneath. This is a pic of the same seats from google, i'll try and get some close ups of my actual seats tomorrow.

    I used to have the same seats as you, I could not find anything that worked so I took mine to my local valet place and they would wash the seats and hoover them. They used to come up immaculate and he only used to charge me £10 for all the seats. Just leave the heaters on full for 30 minutes afterwards to dry them. Hope this helps.

    those seats are full leather just so you know lol you can see the crease in the base of the seat that says its leather all day long , as colin said wetvax and some good leather cleaner will do the trick and also do as i do keep a seat cover on the seats lol

    Good spot mate. Your Audi interior knowledge is obviously far superior to mine. Right colour though!

    Tell me about it. When I got it all I cared about was the v6 and quattro dragging the seats around! They do look nice when they're clean
    though.
