I have the 06 TSX with quartz and so far it has been very easy to keep clean. The only problem I have is my 8 year old son jacking up the back seat. I purchased the all weather mats mainly because of him and he is “banned for life” for eating, drinking, coloring, chewing gum, and touching the windows with his hands. My 97 Accord is too far gone in the back seat because of him just being a kid.
If you condition the seats a couple of times a month that will go a long way toward delaying wear marks and staining. You have to start conditioning before you get wear/tear on the seats.
#93 of 109 Shiny Speckled Ebony Seats?

I know this is probably random, but I was conditioning the leather on my now 3-week old CG TSX with Ebony interior, and I noticed that light reflects off of just about all of the holes in the perforated portion of the seat. Has anyone else noted this? Is this "sparkle" effect intentional or just a by-product of the perforation? I'm sure it's the latter, but this vehicle is so chock-full-o-feature-content that I wouldn't put it past Acura to think about such a minute detail! =)
I also decided today that I hate the hooks for the driver's floormat, such a pain to dislodge it when cleaning. But, other than that, everything is gravy.

I have a 2004 TSX with a light tan interior. I noticed that my drivers side seat has a bluish discoloration too. I drive with a grey seat wedge that covers the seat. I thought that the discoloration might be due to that. However after reading your post, I'm having second thoughts.

Also have a '06 CG TSX since April and noticed the same sparkle, especially on front pass seat -- has reduced over time. Ditto on mat hooks.

Have a 2006 tsx..bought a caego net...returned it because it was too complicated to install. A friend had an A4, he gave me the cargo net off the Audi...it fits really good and does the trick. The attachments are already in the tsx.

I looked at my TSX Ebony interior after your comments. The perforated leather in mine is not dyed all the way through (drum dyed), it is surface dyed and finished only. If yours is the same I think you are seeing the tan edges of the perforations. My experience in selling automotive leather it is usually drum dyed especially if it is going to be perforated.
For maintenance I use 303 Aerospace Protectant. I use it on the seats, dash, door panels, weatherstrip, under the hood-fuse box covers etc. Wipe dry and it leaves things looking nice, not slippery or shiny.

You can also use the cargo net from a 350Z coupe. It fits perfectly with the four hooks already in the back of the trunk. I purchased the TSX cargo net and the dealership installed for free. The TSX cargo net wasn't very useful just hanging in the middle of the trunk. I read other forums and ordered the 350Z cargo net for $32+shipping from the internet. Not one regret with the 350Z net. Now I have both nets installed in my TSX (w/ pics).

We have a '08 TSX that is experiencing VERY similar wearing of the leather seats.
( started just months after we bought it! )
I was wondering if you ever took your situation up with the dealer or anything?
