    Default Cleaning the Alcantara in Mercedes C63 AMG Black Series

    My client was going to be selling his C63 Black Series and wanted to get the alcantara looking better. It was matted down a bit and there were a few stains. After just a little work, it looked factory fresh!





    Matted down alcantara fibers

    Everything looking clean and fresh again!


















    Obligatory exterior shot. It is a C63 AMG Black Series after all.

    Could you explain the process? The outcome is awesome - our BS's alcantara looks horrible too and no one was able to get it properly clean yet. Even MB failed at it...

    If you are going to put words in my mouth, at least try to be more articulate.

    Sprayed Meg's APC 10:1 on mf towel, massaged in, then follow up wipe with separate damp (water) mf. A few light brushes used in certain spots. Very important to get all the APC out of the fibers.
    Sonax also has a specialized cleaner now for this as well.
