Question interior care for 02 M3

What is the recommended cleaner for the dash and its components. Also the leather seats. AND the xenon headlight cover/lenses? I'm told not to wipe them off...how to remove insects then?

I use Vinylex or Mequiars equivalent for the dash.

For the leather, I use the Spinneybeck kit from LeatherZ. LeatherZ are experts on BMW leather, so I follow their advice.

You can clean the headlight covers with soap and water. A clear bra type laminate will keep them looking good for longer. Otherwise, you will need to do one of the headlight restoring systems.

Mequiars now has a plastic headlight protectant. Apply with a clean cloth to reduce hazing.
