Seat cover protection

Hey y'all! Recent owner of a GC wk2 Limited '19 with leather seats. I truly want to preserve the condition of the seats for a longer time compared my old Liberty '08. Are there any recommendations that have treated you well? Looking for both driver/passenger and bench (with hopefully sectional for cup holder/arm rest) seat covers. Appreciate your time, thanks!

According to competent detailers, the best way to take care of the seats and trim long term is keep them clean and don't let them dry out. So vacuum with a soft brush often, wipe down with a moist soft cloth. If its a little dirty use distilled water, nothing stronger. Although something like lexol probably wont hurt. You don't want to get it soaking wet. You want to minimize sun exposure. Make sure all passengers are wearing long pants/dresses and shirts as skin oils, suntan lotions, etc are not good for the seats and are hard to clean off.

You will find folks pushing their favorite conditioner or cleaner, don't use them. In spite of what some think, your seats are not made of saddle leather, they are a plastic film with a thin leather backing.

Some people think I'm stupid and I totally disagree. But my biggest fear is that me thinking I'm smart proves them right.
