I have never been given a straight answer to this question. What exactly are the materials inside my 2000 528i? I know the seats are leather. What about the door panels and dash? Are they not also leather? Please feel free to recommend any cleaners for these respective interior parts. Thanks

I'm pretty sure most other surfaces in the car are some type of plastic/vinyl...I never use anything to clean...just a damp rag...sometimes I'll use 303 aerospace protectant for the dash...heard a lot of products will dry out the materials and cause cracking and such.

Pretty sure american spec 528i's are leatherette not leather, it's a sort of vinal plastic leather i think.
And i assume the dash and doors would be the same.

U.S. cars equipped with the Premium Package (which was most of them) came with leather seats and Vavona (6-cyl) or Burl (8-cyl) wood trim, as well as some other stuff. Non-Premium cars, if you can find one, came with leatherette and "technical surface" trim.
