Are you sure that it wasn't dye from your blue jeans that was coming off onto the rag? They call it transfer dye. I use Lexol too to clean my wife's '08 535xi and I have not rubbed the dye out of her light creamy color interior. Go back and look at your seats to see how they look after it has dried.

I applied Lexol anyway but now some rough spots with gray background color are appearing.
I have heard of car owners who have used shoe dye with good results, but i am concerned the sheen would be different. Others suggest buying pricey dyes from internet suppliers.
Any advice would be appreciated.
P.S. Saturday it was 83 here in TX and the top went down. Howzit bajou?
