when I got my new car last week there was a paper label attached to the headrest telling me not to use leather conditioners etc, but to wipe seats with a damp cloth and to use Mopar total clean to remove marks etc, on reading the handbook it mentions other mopar products to clean trim/carpets etc.

now I know they will always say to use their own products and other products are just as good but I would like some "total clean" to use on the seats when I need it.

having googled I cannot find 1 place in the UK that sells it, admittedly I havent actually asked the dealer yet, but anyone know where to buy this stuff in the UK ?

I've been using Maguiars for the last 4 years...and it comes from the same side of the pond as the Mopar stuff.

I'd be supprised if a lil Italian sports car didn't have better quality leather than the 'Poor mans leather' in our C's. Did you realise it only the centre panel that leather, not the whole seat? even the bolsters are vynyl, that dont impress me much....

On my seats it's only the centre panel that is true leather, the sides look like they are, but on close examination you can see they are vinyl.

I reckon you'll be disappointed Ray, the seats are the same in the CRD as the Hemi, look closely at the 'grain', you'll see what we mean.

The only parts that are leather are literally the flat inset panels that your arse sits on and the back panel with the embossed logo, side bolsters, sides, back, headrests and leg bolster panels are all pvc!

I've just had another look and the whole of the backrest and seat including bolsters and leg bolsters are definateley leather,the sides,headrest and rear of seat are pvc.I can clearly see the cracks in the leather on the bolsters where my ass has been when I get in and out.I'll take some pics to show you
