It works perfect on both Leather seats and CF leather trim ... I cleaned my seats about 1 month ago and they still look like new ! It gives it very natural non-shiny look !

WHEW!! Good thing I ordered Titanium Shadow trim for my M3. I don't have to worry as much since it's just a great, simple looking plastic.

On occasion, I wipe my carbon leather trim down with a lightly damp microfiber cloth. Good as new! I see no need to regularly condition it.

Guys, Carbon leather is real carbon fiber without the resin with a piece of leather at the top. Thus it's called Carbon Leather.

Come on guys...the leather in modern cars is tanned with enough chemicals to withstand exposure to a friggin supernova. You can use windex on this stiff for cryin out load. So please, don't spend pages discussing this.
