hey all, anyone have a product they use to clean the suede inserts on my XLR-V seat inserts and door panels? I have never owned a car with suede and do not want to take a chance on messing them up. thanks in advance...

It is technically not suede, but alcantara. Sonax makes an alcantara and upholstery cleaner. I’ve used it on my CTS-V coupe, which has the alcantara seat inserts, steering wheel and shift knob. It works very well.

Dr. Beasley’s makes both a cleaner and protectant. Haven’t tried the cleaner, have used the protectant in my ATS which has Alcantara all over the place. Seems to work.
