window rubber seal care

I wanted to pose a question regarding rubber seal maintenance given how the 1 series windows seal when closed. I asked the BMW service center if they sold any conditioner to keep the rubber seals supple longer, and they stated they "once" did but no longer, and suggested I try other parts stores asking for "rubber conditioner" but NOT tire conditioner. They did say, however, that this was important, and I should look into getting something. I looked around at my local parts store and could not find anything. Any suggestions from the forum?

This looks to be exactly what I was looking for. I take it you have had good results with this product?

Thanks for your reply!

You are welcome. I use it about 2 or 3 tmes per year and have had no seal problems. I believe it is the product that BMW dealers used to carry.

THE only thing to use. It works..does NOT gum things up, lasts and makes rubber be like real rubber. Had an applicator head like an old fashioned liquid shoe polish tube, if anyone can remember polishing shoes anymore, and is highly recco'd...
