But as they dried I got water spots, like in your picture, on the parts of the seats I hadnt cleaned. Like a water spot line where I had done the backs of the seats but not the sides. Almost like the way you get a tide mark around the edge of a bath. The ONLY way I found to get rid of these spots was......

    Take one bucket of clean warm water, and a white terry toweling cloth (such as a face cloth / tea towel). You need to dampen your ENTIRE seat with the cloth, NOT saturate, just wipe the whole seat down with the cloth so that the entire seat is SLIGHTLY damp. Make sure you do the WHOLE seat, because if you miss an area, you will get a water spot mark where the dry part meets the part you dampened. If you do the whole seat like this, marking sure you do the sides and things, and the top part under the head rest, your seat should dry without leaving any water marks. Like I say, be sure to dampen the whole seat, because if you miss a part, as it dries, you will be left with a water spot mark where the part you dampened meets the part you missed.
    a friend of mine works for a company called valspar. he cleans upholstery for a living and he says the best way to get rid of water marks is to use water. the post above is the right way to go.

    Interesting to read the above^ - never thought of that.. Do you not have to follow a second time with a dry, clean cloth? (to lift dirt?)

    See if this is of any interest to you - 316i Compact Interior tidy-up
