    Im going to stick with the safe bet and say a steamer with a clean toothbrush....

    This has worked for me on many cars that i've detailed and removes chewing gum, paint tar etc. I did a mercedes CL270d a while back and it had a white interior (well, when I finished with it) and it had grey paint in the footwell...

    Steamer/toothbrush ftw!

    Dont have access to a steamer unfortunately (would be steaming many, many things if I did ) but good to know.

    I might try using some leather treatment on the seats and see if that helps lift it.

    What about using a hair dryer to heat it up, or will this damage my leather?

    Hi,

    Too much heat most certainly would damage the leather.

    As it is black I think you might have a simpler job on your hands with the leather. Carefully scrape it off and you will be left with a bit of the leather that is bare for want of a better description. Then get some leather treatment and dye. Dye this area and go over the whole seat with the cleaner and treatment.

    If you cannot scrape it off then use anything to clean it, by touching in dabs on the paint then follow the above suggestion with regards to cleaning and treating.

    Can you remove the carpet from the boot? Great if you can as I would use anything to get the paint off, then pressure wash it straight away.

    Might also be worth joining the Detailing Forum:

    http://www.detailingworld.co.uk

    Then ask the question there.

    Regards

    Chris
