One week in - two things
 
Love this truck. I have two comments:

1. Remote start with temp control would be the nail in the coffin for making this the total package.

2. I am one week in and already see blue dye from jeans (old jeans) wearing off onto the left ass bolster getting in and out of the car....little early for this, no?

Other than the above it's a beast.

Should come off with leather cleaner. That's actually not a problem with the seats as much as it is with your jeans. I had the same problem in my 2011 A6. Wool slacks don't stain the seats, but jeans do. They also stain white sweaters and light colored seatbelts.

Good to know...thanks.

I had the same issue on my last X5 with the Saddle (orange) Nevada interior. Actually rubbed a little of the seat off from a car wash attendant. Never had any future issues though and it cleaned up well with a few applications of leather cleaner. This happened within the first weeks of having it.

What seats do you have?? Mine is Cinnamon Brown Nevada Leather, with 7000+ miles and the seats are clean with no color changes..

Checked your other thread with link to the pictures and you got the same leather seats.

I have the oyster interior and was sure they would get stained, but so far so good.

Actually, I'm wondering if cheap jeans would solve it.
