Got some random stains on the leather seats, how do I remove them?

Titles says it all. Is there any products out there I can buy to remove stains on our beautiful leather seats?

Depends on the liquid that caused the stain. The leather isn't cheap coated stuff, it's dyed through. I've used the leatherique treatment on seats that has removed some stains. What was the cause of the stain? What color?

Spill your man juice on the seats? All seriousness; place corn starch or regular baking flour on the area to absorb any oil that the stain contaminated the leather with. Then lightly dab the area with a damp cloth (warm water). You could use a dish soap or detergent, but make sure it doesn't contain bleach or alcohol and make sure its all natural and diluted. Dry with cloth.

Lexol is one of the best.

I've been using it each three months on my bamboo beige seats and it cleans and doesn't appear to cause discoloration.

When one wants a cabriolet, is there really any other choice than an M3? No. No, there's not.

I have been using BMW's leather foam cleaner and the moisturising with the BMW's leather kit. Gets rid of dirt and water marks and make the leather look factory fresh again.

I just hate it when snail-trails get left on the seats.

There are a few leather cleaners out there that work well. I have been using the Swissvax Leather Care Kit (Link) and my interior smells/looks new. I get compliments on it all the time... Its a bit pricey, but I splurge on a few things and car care products is one of them.
