Hot water with some dawn dish soap and the jean marks will come out....I had the same issue when I had my Oyster interior.

Leather Masters Strong Cleaner
OR
Leatherique Prestine Clean

After that apply one of the other leather masters products to protect the seats and you will have a lot less dye transfer and when you do it will be an easy cleanup.

If you don't like the pricing on those you can try woolite diluted with water.

Get a good leather brush and give the seats a nice scrubbing, my Jade Grey seats come out looking great each and every time.

I thought Leatherique Prestine Clean is part of a two step process, no?...After the Rejuventor oil. Can it be used on its own?

Also, I find the OE BMW UV Leather Lotion to be quite good for protecting the leather (once it has been cleaned).

Prestine Clean works great as a stand alone cleaner. If you have a light interior that's not in perfect condition you will be able to see a night and day difference in your seats. It leaves a nice matte factory finish to the seats too, no shiny stickey slipppery crap.

A leather brush makes a big difference too.

My leather looks brand new on most of the seats because I only use the driver seat and 99% of the time the others have gone un-used, and I don't really get my drivers seat dirty or anything, but after using it there was a very noticeable impact on the colour of the leather and the way the finish on the leather looked.

Leather Masters works just as good, used it on a beige interior in another vehicle and the results were very dramatic.

BMW two step cleaner and conditioner has worked really well for me with my coral red. Did my buddy's light grey on the weekend and turned out great. It's about $16 or so each

Last time I checked BMW was re-labelling lexol leather products, but I'm not sure if things have changed now. It's a pretty decent product, if you just get the lexol brand you can probably save a couple bucks.

Leatherique is definitely the way to go. The 2 step is recommended for first application then you can use the conditioner for maintenance thereafter. Take it from me, the lighter Jaguar and Porsche leather is very finicky but this product turns it brand new again.
