: Leather & Cokcpit Care Question

02-07-2005, 07:19 AM
I've got gray leather on my ZHP and have been looking for a decent leather cleaner, but keep getting conflicting responses. When my family had a 996, the dealership recommended nothing but Meguiar's Medallion line for cockpit care. Seemed to work okay, but the FL sun just kills leather. Any suggestions to keep the leather rich and smelling like new?

Have you ever tried any of Griot's products? My father has found their leather care product to work great at both protecting and restoring leather on his 328i (black interior) and X5 (grey interior). Here's a link to their web site: http://www.griotsgarage.com/catalog.jsp?L1=L1_1000&L2=L2_1006&SKU=11142 .

Griots is supposed to be good, also Leatherique (http://www.detailersparadise.com/View.asp?ProductID=436520031109012%2D1225212614076 )
Sonus Leather Cleaner (http://store.yahoo.com/cgi-bin/clink?autopia+yc5RwM+son-600.html)
and Sonus Leather conditioner (http://store.yahoo.com/cgi-bin/clink?autopia+yc5RwM+son-610.html)
There are many great leathwer care products out there.
I would stay away from Lexol. It works great but it's a paint in the butt to use.

I've used Lexol leather (both cleaner and conditioner) for 20 years with great results.
