The seats aren't leather!

I know :)

I spoke to them, and it will work just as well on PU. The PU is much more resilient than leather apparently. I'm a little concerned about the stitch work staining too, so I thought I would add a little protection there.

I used this ceramic coating after seeing a few Tesla white seat owners using it on YouTube:

Gyeon Q² LeatherShield

I put one coat on the rear seats (hardly ever used) and the door panels, and two coats on the front seats. It went on very nicely. I've still got just under half left for a recoat in a year or so.

Going to get some Dodo Juice leather sealant for the white seats, to go with the pre-requisite baby wipe routine.

Anything to minimize colour transfer seems like a good bet, especially with regard to the stitching. Looking forward to a happy day of polishing on Saturday...

Supernatural Leather Sealant 250ml - 'dry to the touch' natural finish sealant for leather and vinyl

Anyone have any experience with this, or other suggestions?

No experience but I'm interested in your results. I might do the same if it turns out well. The white seats are fantastic but with my 5 year old about it's only a matter of time.......

So yesterday wife and I got soaked by the rain while running back to the car. Wife with new dark blue/Indigo jeans + rain + white seats = dye transfer! Thankfully the seats were treated and a quick rub down of the seats with a wet wipe removed any staining. Phew!

That’s good to know. Time to “treat” the wife to a new pair of (light coloured) jeans :D
