This dilemma plagues me and keeps me up at night. So you take it in for service and the mechanics leave a mark or two or you spill a little coffee, soda, you smoke and ash is collecting on the back seat, the dog jumps in the car and now the paw prints are there from dirt...
The point is, it has been mentioned that you treat it like regular leather. So your telling me to apply Lexol? Suede water protectant spray? Suggestions?
my coupe GT's black leather after 12 years and 205,000 miles...nearly perfect.

With tan leather seats, and you would be very, very impressed how good the car looks and it is not kept in a garage. The seats are perfect. Lexol is great but would I put it on suede? But this in not the point.
Point is, how to maintain...

Oh I've used Lexol twice a year, both steps. Zymol is good, but i have replaced that with Mother's Pre-Wax Cleaner, then Mother's Glaze, then Blitz Wax. Once I figured out that I need to pull my Black car into the sun when done, and wiping away the final oils that show up from the Blitz, then the car looks great.
Now if I can only find the Zymol car wash concentrate that I bought, everything would be ok.
