      For those extra 45 minutes added onto the cleaning routine, it's definitely worth waxing a car every 3-4 weeks, imo. Very satisfying when you see the water just bead up and run off - it's like watching the car clean itself

      ^^ I like it! But I wish the stitching was the same on the seats to tie it all together some more.

      You're right! but white stitching for seats wasn't an option when I bought the car. At least, I have it in the s-tronic knob boot and handbrake:

      Somebody should try it. since the cloth string will absorb the color much faster than the pleather, as long as you wipe it off right away, you should not end up with white pleather seats.

      Go do it in area that are not visible. I was intially going to mention white marker, but markers are much more permanent and show polish is not.

      Be careful about wearing black pants in your car if you do go with the shoe polish

      I've actually used a furniture wax/polish for my seats - I can't remember the name off it of the top of my head, but it's real guey and you need to wear rubber gloves when applying it.

      As long as you apply, leave for about 30 minutes, and THEN buff off until the towel you are using is remaining it's initial color, your pants should be okay

      I agree, get a torch or some thing to heat them up. Heat makes a world of difference when trying to get stuff apart.

      hardwired my Passport 9500ix...finally! BUT, didn't get a "mini" add-a-circuit kit like i thought i was getting from Amazon, but for now i'm fused into my lumbar motor fuse (#36 -- 10 amps). just gotta make sure i always unplug my radar...which is fine b/c i always do..(don't want it seen/stolen). or i guess as long as it's "turned off", i should be fine short term.

      Edit above : this is the stuff I used for my seats....

      http://www.furnitureclinic.co.uk/Lea...uring_Balm.htm

      Here's a quick 'Before and After' pic on a repair I done to my car seats....





      Admittedly, it's not COMPLETELY gone, but less visible to others I think

      BUT, this is why you need to buff it off COMPLETELY....
