I have a Q3 on order and would like owners thoughts on how the upholstery stands up to wear.
I know some Audi cars have had problems in the past with seat bolster wear.
How is yours holding up ?

Totally wearing fine - just condition the leather periodically to keep it supple and you shouldn't have any more issue than any other seats.

Just make sure to keep the crevices clean, wipe the seats down with a all purpose cleaner (diluted) or a specified leather cleaner once a month or so, and condition it and it'll stay mint

I use a dilute Isopropyl Alcohol (about 5%) solution which picks up dust real well and cleans some other goo as well as disinfects, followed by a Voodoo leather treatment rub -

You will not have a problem with the interior. The seat material quality is very good. I use 303 Protectant on the seats, (rubber door seals, vinyl). It is the best (my opinion) cleaner, protectant available. Unlike Armorall it is breathable. Armorall with cause leather and vinyl to crack. 303 won't.

What did you order...and welcome aboard.

Armorall is definitely the worst thing you could ever possibly use.

But yea, pretty much any of these suggestions will work out beautifully !

Based on the 10 year old A4 with over 200K miles on it, I would say that wear is not an issue. The Audi interiour is far superior to any Honda/VW/Nissan that I have had in the past.

Yes Ive owned a few Audis with all cloth, all leather and part cloth/part leather seats. All have lasted well after many years as I tend to keep the cars for a while. I even don't clean the leather as much as I should and it still holds well. So with a bit of care it'll more than stand up to any general use.
