The Australian delivered RS4 comes with the full Alcantara treatment, wheel, gear knob and seats. The seats actually wear quite well, the wheel and knob on the other hand have the same issues as suede and look pretty second hand after 6- 12 months. Hot weather and sweaty palms don't help. We could buy replacement Alcantara wheel and knob from Audi (XXXpensive), re-trim which is more affordable or in my case, replace the alcantara subject to hand contact with perforated leather.

A light clean with fabric cleaner and a suede brush helps a lot but nevertheless, it is not a long term solution if you like your car to look fresh.

The OP who rubbished the gloves would find that gloves will really extend the life of the Alcantara. Swings and roundabouts.
