    What's the best product? I got my wife a new FX35 with the 'wheat' interior - its more like french vanilla color or butter :D Needless to say, a month in...its showing marks from the little one's shoes on the back of the seats. The seat has a hard plastic shell/cover. Magic Eraser hasn't helped.

    Anything out there that's safe for plastic and/or leather?

    On something that new, mild soapy water should work. Once it is cleaned, I would treat the leather with a good, NON silicon based, leather conditioner.

    the scuffs are on the hard plastic cover on the back of the seat. I posted the pic to show the color. The main concern is the plastic, and of course keeping the leather looking clean down the road.

    409 Cleaner - the real stuff, not the Orange version - to clean the plastic.

    On the leather use Connoly Hide Food, it's been recommended for Rolls Royce and Jaguar seats for ages, it should be OK for yours too......
