First you can change that obnoxious font color, then I would personally suggest Turtle-wax Oxy power out upholstery cleaner. It's cheap, easy to use, works amazingly, and can be found at any Advance Auto, Pepboys, etc.

How about the black side bolsters? Does it work well as well? Its always harder to clean than the suede.

Dont use that product. OXY means HYDROGEN PEROXIDE. That will bleach or fade the color of your seats.



Look up something that will safely clean Alcantara
.

I highly recommend going to Target and picking yourself up one of these:

http://www.target.com/Bissell-Little..._qi_detaillink

It works amazing! I haven't tried it on the front seats, but I used it on the back seat where the previous owner must have spilled a coke or something (mind you, I cleaned the seat after already owning the car for a year) and the stain came right out and made my backseat look brand spanking new. I plan on doing the front seats eventually, I just drive it too much to use it on the driver seat and let it dry long enough. Yeah, it's $100, but it's a worthwhile investment, I've used it several times on my carpet in my apartment, in my car, and I'm sure you can find other areas to use it as well.
