I have a 2010 Honda accord v6 leather beige interior. It gets dirty, so if I buy seat covers for my car, can I will feel my seat warmer through my seat covers?

you can fit covers BUT any dust that gets between the cloth and the leather will act like a scourer and take the shine/laquer off,making it even harder to clean in the future.use "simple"(unperfumed)soap to clean the leather,and wipe with a damp cloth after.

I have a black GT500 and what can I use to keep it clean?

Turtle Wax in the compound case. Do not use lotions or other filmy substances. Completely rinse off your car with straight water, no abrasive additives or pressure washes! Wash with a soft, lint-free towel and dry with a REAL Chamois. Chamois should cost right around $30.00 for a nice one. Make sure your Chamois is completely wet before trying to dry anything off - and wring it dry, but keep it moist. Never use any "No-Touch" or "No-Wash" substances or abrasive cleaners or towels. Never use a power-tool or power buffer. Always do everything by hand, and it will last for years. Keep your vehicle away from sappy trees, and garage always or as much as possible. The SUN is your enemy number one.

i had a pot of wax in my car it spilled over the seat

scrape off as much as you can with a dull knife or a credit card. Then use toilet paper to blot up the wax while you heat it with a hair blow dryer. Put the toilet paper on the wax and apply warm air above the paper. The wax will melt and absorb into the paper. This will get some more out but not all. To get the remnant of the wax caught in the cloth fibers, use naptha (lighter fluid) to dissolve the remaining wax and blot up with more paper towels or tissue. The naptha will smell some for a little while but since it is dry cleaning solution, it will evaporate quickly. The other choice for cleaner is electrical contact cleaning solution. It will dissolve the petroleum based wax and it evaporates without leaving a smell or residue behind. This technique should get out about 95% of the stain.

removal of headlight assembly

You cannot clean the insides. The are sealed if you attempt to remove them, which is a big job in itself, you run the risk of damaging the seal and allowing water and moisture to get inside which could lead to more problems. What I would recommend is to visit your local parts store, and pick up a bottle of Maguire's cleaner wax. Apply some of the wax directly on the headlamps and with a terry cloth or a microfiber cloth rub the wax in real good with a little bit of pressure. Allow the wax to cure and then polish it off with a dry part of the towel. Generally these headlamps oxidize and causes this foggy or cloudy appearance.
