    Didn't have the dealer do fabric protection.
    What can I use on the carpet & the suede/leather seats to protect it?
    Thanks in advance.

    Others on the forum talked about Scotch Guard. I paid for the protection at the dealer that included stains, tears, rips and holes. Scotch Guard will only protect on stains. I have red interior though so, I thought it was critical!

    I'll probably be the odd man out and say STAY AWAY from Scotchguard. It's one of the few 3M products I don't care for. Do some research online.

    My car will be getting 303 Aerospace Fabric protection for cloth part of seats, carpets and carpeted mats. It's the real deal. Works like a charm. 303 was recently bought out by Eagle One but they haven't messed with it. 303 stuff is available online, in just about any boat or outdoor store as well. Even some good hardware stores have it.

    Also 303 Aerospace Protector (another 303 product not the same as the one above) is a great product for plastic, vinyl, rubber and even leather. They advertise it as SPF for your stuff. It's good stuff, not too shiny, really protects, doesn't build up and doesn't attract dirt.

    My suggestion, get a good polymer sealant and top with a coat of carnuba wax. Lots of stuff out there. I like Klasse for a base coat but I also use other products. There are so many. Everybody has a favorite.

    I use the 303 on my convertible top...works great! I did not even think about using it on the interior.

    No, I made appointment for early March. It's too much like winter around here to bother taking my Cat to the body shop for detail work.

    I watched a video on applying it last night, it's doable by yourself and you can buy the product on line. Reviews were mixed...as usual.
