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, does not indicate using on "wood" trims. Probably, wouldn't hurt though.
