Wheels look filthy! After a few thousand kms they don't seem to get dirty so quickly though.
Nice colour

well, I just happened to buy new jeans that weekend and the blue started to come off

I didn't see the warning on the jeans until after I took them off, but the blue wiped straight off with some wet towel so its all good. Plus once the jeans got washed the first time the blue no longer comes out.

Just need to apply some protectant to it someday

Your not alone RadiuM...

Even with the coral leather I have the same problem with dark denim jeans..

Like you said, just a simple wipe over with a clean damp cloth and its all gone..

how long do the seats take to warm up?
do they turn on automatically when you put the key in? start the car or open the door?

They only come on when activated from their switch on the dash panel under the radio controls.

Ignition has to be on and they have 3 heat settings per seat and they can be activated independantly.
