Does anyone else have a problem with their cashmere nuance seats picking up the dye from denim jeans and creating a blue stain on the side bolsters and on the perforated seating area?......Is this problem non existant with the Tuscany leather?
I seem to remember a thread along these lines in the CTS forum a couple years ago. But, I can't find it now. I had cashmere nuance seats in my CTS for over two years and wore jeans frequently - never saw that issue.

I've had my STS with Tuscany seats for 2 months. So far it hasn't been a problem. My wife did have that issue with her 2003 Lincoln Aviator. Luckily, we bought the fabric protectant package. It's usually a waste of money but in this case, the dealer had to remove the stains since they guaranteed the seats. They ended up re-dying the seats. That may be the only way to remove the stains.

Have the SAME problem with blue fading onto the left side of the drivers seat. NOT from jeans though. the wife wore a blue dress one day and that's where the stain came from. Tried like hell to scrub it off to no avail.
Whatever peice of clothing that is not washed yet may fade on tan colored lether... be even more careful with black lether coats which are relativly new.

Thats been a problem with leather seats for decades. I had a 77 98, red with white leather seats and they did it way back then. I can't understand why as the jeans had been through the wash at least a hundred times. If they had been brand new I could see it.
