Leatherique is amazing. You'll have to let the rejuvenater sit over night in a warm environment and then come back and apply the pristene clean and lightly scrub with a wet leather brush. Most seats are leatherette and not true leather. Once you determine if yours are leather this is an incredible product. It will work on leatherette but not as effective. Autogeek has a nice kit, and YouTube has a great diy with an audi seat as example.

Any tips on cleaning red interior on a 2011 335? Ive noticed that when using regular armorall and leather specific armorall, it picks up the dye? from the leather and leaves a brown color when I go over the end seams. Over the larger spots it doesnt pick up the red though

Armorall is a terrible product that will actually damage your interior over time.

If you have dakota leather then it's a coated leather so oil based leather cleaners like leatherique won't work well. Leather Masters is designed for coated leathers and will work a lot better for heavily soiled or dried out leather. For regular maintenance washes, a wipe down with a damp rag or water-based interior cleaner and a followup with 303 protectant will work great.

I use Leatherique Pristine Clean and it does a very nice job., leaving a matt appearance.
