Unhappy Cleaning Puke??

I am sooooo upset today! My pristine G no longer has the new car smell. Now it smells like puke! Someone had a little too much to drink this weekend and couldn't keep it down on the ride home last night. Most of it got on the mat which has been completey cleaned and should be OK. The problem is in the passenger seat. I have used my Zaino leather cleaner and conditioner on it about fives times, but I still can't get rid of the smell. I imagine it got into the seat through the holes in the leather. Anyone have any suggestions on how to get rid of this smell?? Can I treat the seat with something?? If I can't get it cleaned, the dealer is going to get a 2004 w/Brembos in return for a new 2005.

I'd suggest going to a detailing shop first,
they may be able to fix it for you.

I thought about a new seat. Anyone know what this would cost?? I could probably look on eBay. Nevertheless, I did some research on Autopia and found a couple good threads on the same situation. I went out and purchased an enzyme based cleaner specifically for organic clean ups. Treated the seat and let it get into the perforations. I left an open box of baking soda in the car overnight, and this morning it actually smells pretty good. I feel really bad about how I handled it with the fiance. I got pretty upset when it happened and she was already embarrased to begin with. We both apologized, so all is good now. It still sucks that it happened, but oh well...good thing it's a lease.
