lol. White spots? Umm, I think these are spit spots... a result of inadvertently spitting while talking on the phone handsfree through Bluetooth.

Hmm,


Speaking of white spots. I have a huge white spluge (looking) stain on my passenger seat due to leaving a small travel size deodorant stick on the seat in the sun. About the only solution I can come up with is to replace my seat upholstery and cushion as it seems to have melted through the seat. I cleaned it and it was gone and then back again.


When the sun comes out it heats up and disappears only to return even worse. I am now trying goo gone as a final attempt prior to having the dealer replace the leather and the seat cushion.


Actually I have perma-plate so they should cover it if their warranty is anything like it was sold to me as. My guess is they will just try to clean it and it will come back. So I will probably just tell the dealer to replace...


Talk about a white spot (that is when it is cool). Looks fine when the car reaches 100 degrees or so until it cools back off...

Sounds like you might be getting something similar on your leather albeit a much smaller scale...

It is a prtoectant for the interior and a sealer for the paint that is probably no better than a wax and some leather treatment that the stealer will upsell you when you are finalizing your paperwork.

The only good thing is that it comes with a warranty and I was told "even if you have a pen in your back pocket and tear the seat they will fix it"

We'll soon see how good their warranty is when I call my stealer...
