You need nothing but some 1Z cleaner for everything your car besides your seats. Awesome product.

I like Zaino products inside and outside on my cars. The leather cleaner and protectant give the car a great smell of leather too. After using it for 4 years in my E92 my seats still looked and smelled brand new.

I would stop using that NOW and go with something else... Spend the money on great products ( 303, Adams, Zaino, etc.. ) and stop using Armor All. You have an expensive car and it kills me to see someone use that crap.

the only thing "Armor All" will do is crack your dash.

I am not a F30 owner, BUT:

I use 1Z Deep cleaner only on the 'rough' plastics like lower door internals, like the 'kick panel' area where it can get scuffed and the plastic is hard.(This is a great product for cleaning, but has a bit of dust attraction)
I use 1Z Cockpit Premium on the dash top and console where the plastics are softer and have a 'richer'/finer finish.

(sometimes I use BMW interior cleaner, but I like the finish the 1Z gives better)

(btw, the 'new' armor all stuff is SUPPOSED to be more water based and not silicon based so shouldn't crack the dash - I never use their products anyway)

TOO LATE! They blew it IMO with their crappy silicone based products so I would not every put their junk on any of my cars, EVER.
