Ivory White Seating Surfaces - Difficult to keep clean?
 
I'm considering a GT with black carpeting and Ivory white seating surfaces/dash components. The seats look great, but being so light in color I'm wondering if it's difficult to keep them clean. Would someone with these seats please comment on whether or not these seats readily show dirt?

Thanks.

Might want to ask this question on the F10 forum
 
You will probably get a lot more feedback and answers to your question there.

Yes, the oyster interior is difficult to keep clean and if I had it to do all over again I would have gone with black (exterior is graphite). Denim presents a greater challenge than dirt in my experience.

kj, thanks for your post. It confirms what I always suspected and essentially means that passengers should always be wearing "nice, clean" clothes. Even so, It may be a problem should one want to use the versatile 'SUV' capability that the GT has (and that I have used on occasion). While the ivory interior looks sharp, I would not have bought my GT had it had anything else but the black interior it has for purely practical reasons.

maguires leather cleaner every couple weeks
 
I agree the interior of the ivory/black combo looks great. I have it on my car. It's the second time i've had that combo although last time it was called lemon/black. I agree with the other poster that jeans are the biggest culprit in terms of discoloring but a good leather cream cleaner every couple weeks puts everything back to new. It literally takes 2 minutes so it's not a big deal. Go for it....
