As for The stains are not sticky , they are White hollow circles on the surface close to the back rests. I think they are water stains that stayed there for long and now combined with dust and penetrated to lower layers.I could not completely get rid of them by moist towel. I will try the leather cleaner that you mentioned and let you know how it works.
Kat : what's your BMW?
They do sound like water stains. I've seen these before. Try simple first, which would be a little household white vinegar on a saturated cotton ball, chased by some fresh water. If that doesn't do the trick, try a mix of 80% distilled water, 15% isopropyl alcohol, 5% Woolite (by volume). Use a gentle brush like an old discarded toothbrush to work it into the stain, follow by some fresh distilled water to rinse off the soap, etc.

Regarding your question? My BMW is plainly described in "Mein Auto".
If your sport doesn't put blood, dirt or grease under your fingernails,
then it's just a game.
