I have an "07 EXT with the Cashmere (light camel) leather interior.
I've noticed the back leather panel on the driver's side seems to be discolored from rubbing against my clothing/belt. I've tried Lexol leather cleaner, but no go.
My dealer advises me it may not be a covered repair.
Anyone else?

GM makes a leather/plastic/vinyl cleaner... it works great! I'd follow that up with a quality conditioner as the GM stuff does not have conditioning oils and will in fact strip existing oils. They do make a conditioner as well, but I'm not a huge fan. I use mink oil exclusively.

You are not alone, I have several customers and friend with problems from wet clothing during the winter

I've not had this happen with my Caddy...yet. But it did in my Lexus. I never could get the clothing dye out of that seat. :(

the armrest in my lade... is almost black after the winter (from my leather jacket) after a couple weekes of using the armrest without the jacket, the black will wear off, and it will go back to shale/camel.

Just an update here.
My dealer called today and advised me Cadillac will repair/replace the discolored leather panel on a one time basis only.
Leather belts and leather jackets appear to be the most damaging to the perforated cashmere color. Jeans also appear to contribute to the discoloration.

That is some good news for you. :)
