It would be greatly appreciated if someone could answer this. I know the kit is different to the F20 but essentially the same materials.
It's held up fine after 2 yrs of daily use, the carbon weave is resistant to scratches & fingerprints. The only hassle is maintaining alcantara as passengers often like to touch it when they get in the car.

I usually lay warm damp towels on top of the alcantara, brush it with a new toothbrush & vacuum any particles. For optimum results use a Alcantara solution & special brush to restore the napp
