    Seat Suede inserts?

    Are the suede inserts true suede or an Ancantara type material? Im trying to find a cleaner and conditioner that wont damage or mat down the fibers.

    Anthony,

    I think it is alcantara. The inserts are "suede-like" according to Motor Trend.

    Check with Leatherique. They will know how to clean it without harm........ That is what I use to clean my leather but I haven't done anything to the suede.

    Thank you for the reply's. After looking into it I seen that Maserati and Lamborghini use alcantara suede. Im pretty sure if they use it, Cadillac would as well for they're higher end model vehicles.
    I was told by an Alcantara rep to use a nail brush lightly on the dry surface to remove top dirt going front/back/side/side to lift fibers, mist inserts with a suede cleaner let set for 20 sec, wipe away with soft towel. If needed after misting, lightly brush with nail brush then follow with soft towel to remove deeper dirt, sweat, spills, etc. When done, the nail cleaner will have fluffed the fibers back up and the deep dirt will be removed and feel soft again.
