I am the lucky owner of a 2004 156 1.9 JTD Progression, which looks yummy outside... but the lower door cards need some serious work to remove shoe marks. They're light gray and look a bit like suede. Any tip on how to clean that up? :confused:

A regular upholsetery cleaner should shift it... though that may leave residue marks.

A Carpet Cleaner (nothing too harsh) and a small nail brush to gently agitate the stains and wipe with a clean cloth. Should do the trick.

Yeah any old sort of carpet cleaner diluted appropriately will do the trick. Use a spinge to apply. Once dry spray scotchguard on to protect them. Did this on my 156 with Alfatex and it alwasy came up really nice with a vaccum.

If its 'suede like' there is a suede shoe cleaner that's basically a soft rubber block that you gently rub across the surface. It works well. I used to have one for my 'brothel creepers' (Clark's desert boots).

If you are talking about the front doors then its plastic isn't it? Just looks like suede.
