My interior stays pretty clean and I use leather masters for the occasional good scrub. My leather usually only needs the quick wipe down

I used the chemical guys stuff over the weekend on my leather....wow! I took the car in for the 60k service and when I went to pick it up, I had an offer from the shop foreman to buy the car and the sales guys were drooling as well.

I take it from that, I'll be keeping mine for a while.

Did you really apply it with your bare hands?
I have used this product in the past, with great results, but it is very hard on your skin.
Started using medical gloves after the first time as a result (been using it since `09)

Nice results..I imagine you could crank the heat in the car and speed up the evaporation process..

Chemical guys makes a leather cleaner and conditioner for around 40$. This product is simply amazing. It is pH balanced for leather and leaves no residue. Best of all it restores the "new car" smell! Results will look like the pictures posted at the start of this thread. Best part is it can be applied at any temp.

I stick with the BMW cleaner and my seats 2008 look great as well

This stuff flat out works. I was skeptical at first, but I bought pristine clean and I love it for my leather.

Summer 2013 I'm definitely going to use the rejuvenating oil. This should be done once a year, then maintenance with pristine clean.

No....no it's a 2008 with 50.000 KM = 31,068 US MILES !!!
Don't worry Leatherique is amazing....i used all brands with negative results
The Novillo leather absorbs all products !!!...therefore is the rejuvenator oil
with thoroughly hydration in step 1,and let it sit for 48 hours
( I tried before also BMW cleaner...it was the same as....nothing )
