    Default Leather care for a 430

    What do you guys treat your leather seats wih? Mine are the standard seats and are a matt feeling/looking leather and I'm worried that an oil/cream may change the look/feel. Car is nearly 4 years old so thinking I should do something?

    Seats are not at all dirty so just want to preserve the as new good looks not actually clean them....

    I bought some off fleabay. Cost 9ish for a bottle of cleaner and a separate bottle of conditioner. The retailer's name was The Scratch Doctor. It's brilliant stuff. You'll be shocked at how dirty your steering wheel gets!

    Restored the matt look on my daily driver and 355 - I believe shiny means dirty leather?? Cue Dave Z to advise!

    I agree, and I believe that they say that leather does not need feeding and oils are a no-no.

    Cheers for that, I'll give it a go too. I have some old Zymol stuff from when I had an Audi and a BMW with leather interiors but I gave it a bash on the 355 and it left the door panels streaky.
