I would note though that your interior is Cappuccino (light) with Espresso (dark) trim. The Expresso interior is the same but with dark seats.
Thanks , for the corrections in my signature , on the interior color .

I do really like this color of the exterior,
I like the looks of the interior , but hard to keep the seats clean .

I'm not sure what you wear but I hear that blue jeans are not compatible with the Cappuccino seats.

I don't think the seats are less clean, they just can't hide what you don't see on darker seats. On the other hand, they don't show light dust! That was an issue with my previous black seats.

Yes, you are exactly right.

I wear jeans, old faded ones, and some kaki, and it don't have any affect on the seats.

But , my wife has been wearing new (indigo blue) jeans and we noticed a blue tint on the passenger seat, and NOTHING would remove that blue dye. Its not real bad , but we know its there. Wish I could find a product that would remove it.

So, we purchased a set of front seat covers, to protect the leather .
Works OK, they match color really well.

I had a 2013 passat with similar colored "suede like" seats with blue jeans staining. Before I sold it I took Blue Magic Carpet and fabric cleaner and the were brand new afterward, maybe there leather cleaner would do the same for you. BTW SYMETRY ya I do like that color but I bet those pictures don't do it justice, FMC tri-stage colors are usually very dynamic.

Hair salons have a creamy like solution to take stains out. They use it to remove hair dye stains. Ask them what it is called and I am sure you can purchase it on amazon.

You are right, the pics don't do that paint job justice. I don't know if the true affects of the deep, tri pearl, metallic, can be captured with 2 dimensional pics.
Lots of people everywhere I go seem to be attracted to it.

I primarily wear blue jeans that have been washed many, many times and still the leather absorbs the blue colour. This topic has been discussed on the Facebook MKC group. Someone on there used a leather cleaner and conditioner product called Chemical Guys and says they got very good results. I just purchased it on Amazon but haven't had a chance to try it out yet...way too cold here to spend time cleaning the car.
