Help! Weird stuff on leather seats

When I bought my BMW Z4 in January there was, what looked like, dirt on the passenger seat. It hadn't been valeted very well. I tried to clean it off but it doesnt budge and it seems to be spreading.
I think it may be a mould of some sort and really don't know what to do.
Any advice would be great. It's still in warranty - my husband thinks it's dirt and that I'm being precious.

As above, photo would help greatly

Could be ingrained dirt, could be due transfer from jeans say..,

What have you used to clean it ?

The marks are on the upright back, not the sitting base

What platform are you using.
Most people use Imgur for photo uploads
Once you have uploaded the photos to imgur copy the BBC code and paste into your reply on here.
So as to ensure the images are the right size put a L (capital L) before the .jpg before you finish.

LTT Leather and Colourlock are two very good companies/websites to visit.
It sounds as if the leather would need to be cleaned first and then treated with a Maintain/
Conditioning coating.

I use Tapatalk and it’s easy to just add the photo to the post / thread.
