Good luck on finding a replacement wife.

You may get good results by going to your dealership and talking with them. They usually have some cool tricks to remove stains.

A friend of ours was driving his wife's new Lexus to get it washed, three days after they bought it. He tried to beat the train, didn't make it, then stopped under the gate. The gate slammed down on the hood and bounced all over it. He took it straight over to the dealer, and told the sales guy "I can't believe you sold me a car with a great big dent in the hood!" He went home and told his wife he was getting the car washed and they found the dent.

If it were me, I would not try removing the stain myself. I find that I inevitably would make it look much, much worse and perhaps impossible for a professional to remove. I agree with calling dealers and see who they recommend. Usually there are mobile interior repair places that can fix it like it never happened. Worth every cent over making it look worse.
Ah that's one thing about our Flame, doesn't play any favorites! Flame hates everybody!

I agree with Flame Red but a good auto detailer can work wonders, dealer not required.
Yota has a reputation for excellent quality seat materials.

Their leather not so good....some Lexus had dash cracking and even melting issues.
Oh, keep the wife...pay no never mind to Skol

That’s why when ever I deliver a new vehicle, I insist the customer inspects the car with me, & then signs the form stating there is ZERO damage. Some will just be lazy, & go to sign, but I insist we both inspect the car before any signatures. GARY.
