: What to clean woodgrain with pls??

So my wood grain on my 335 has just normal finger prints on it whats good to use for something like this ??

I recommend going from less to more. If it's just the prints you care about, how about simply wiping with a damp (soft and good) MF cloth? I often choose distilled water for inside the interior, since I have it conveniently in a spray bottle (spray directly into MF, not on to the trim). If I wanted more cleaning, I'd use ONR with the MF (ONR is so versatile IMO, it's now getting a lot of use in the home too). Past that, I'd try Klasse AIO. (If this wasn't a 335, but some other car with "exposed" wood, you would have to look towards wood-specific stuff as you would do with furniture.) Good luck, and I hope others with more experience may chime in. (I use Klasse AIO and an aluminum polish for my aluminum trim.)

I just use a MF towel with some quick detailing spray (Zaino Z6) on it.

My quick go to is Meguire's Interior detailer and microfiber. It is good for all interior surfaces including the wood. I use that to quickly clean the wood. Since the wood has a clear coat on it if you really want to shine it up you can use a wax (I love using a spray wax for that).

The review for Meguiars Interior Quick Detailer (http://www.detailedimage.com/wax.php?id=12368&url=detailedimage.com/Meguiars-M43/Quik-Interior-Detailer-P384/16-oz-S1/), does not indicate using on "wood" trims. Probably, wouldn't hurt though.

I called Miguiar Customer Service, they themselves don't think, any of the products for interior are really for wooden trim. BMW Genius do not know either. So it seems, wooden trims have no care product available in market at all to keep them shiny.

aerospace 303 is the clear winner for me. I've also tried the swissvax wood polish. did not really car for it. Whatever you do, don't scrub hard, u can easily mar the finish.

Honestly some people like more gloss, some like less. I don't think any product is bad with common sense. Just have fun. you'll be fine.

Most trim in the car is clear-coated so it's best to treat it like paint. I use Zaino AIO on the wood in my 760 once a year to keep it looking great. Other than that, I wipe it down with a mix of quick detailer and a Microfiber cloth.

If you get light scratches on the trim, plasticX from Meg's works great.
