But just how does one let the leather get so dirty in the first place baffles my mind. Did he carry dogs??

I don't think you realise that it's ever that dirty - the car is 6 years old already - till you give it a good scrub and see before and after pics. Most cars have black leather which hides the dirt. If you OCD like me, rather not think about the dirt hidden by dark leather Rofl That being said, the black leather in my M3 is getting this treatment next month. I shudder to think how dirty it actually is...

Ja, very true. I did a leather treatment on my black interior a few months ago. It looked ok before I started rubbing solution into it. My yellow microfiber cloths turned brown very soon. I'm still struggling to get the shine off my steering wheel. Contact areas are the worst because the leather soaks up body fats, my drivers door pull was a bitch.
Good work man, I hope she looks after you.

Excellent build.

I learnt to wash seat belts from a expert so to say.

To clean seat belts, pull them all the way out and put a soft clamp to keep it extended. Take it out the car and carefully close door on it. The used parts will mostly be outside. Soak the seatbelt with clean green and allow to soak 30min. Then take a bucket with hot water and rinse massage belt. Reapply clean green and repeat till bets are clean.
Now if u think leather gets dirty , u gonna be in for a shocker when you see the crud that comes out of a seatbelt.
