Hi, I just bought a fabulous 2002 530i, and I would like to use quality products in looking after it. I've heard that Zaino(?) is good for leather, as is Lexol. Is one generally considered better than the other?

Also, does anyone know of any stores that would sell Aerospace 303 protectant in British Columbia?

thanks in advance,

Llew

Lexol isnt bad i find it sticky, i keep a bottle for those nasty jobs to start off with so i dont waste my $$$$$ products. poorboy's leather stuff (cleaner and condtioner) or Zaino (cleaner and conditioner is seperate) are the best in my opinion. Chris

I bought a zaino kit a while back, came with the leather cleaner stuff. I didn't really want it, but I'm glad I got it. I love it.

Everything having to do with cleaning, detailing, and otherwise babying your ride. More information than you can possibly use.

Initial conditioning - for the initial conditioning of uncoated leather, and/or if you are cleaning for the first time use a Leather Rejuvenator. (http://www.Leatherique.com) [Use Zaino Z-10 Leather in a bottle on coated leather] paying particular attention to area that are exposed to the most UV radiation, i.e. backs of headrests, seat shoulders, and then apply to the rest of the seating surfaces starting at he top and working your way down.

Allow the product to be absorbed into the hides for several hours on a sunny day, or overnight. Warmth makes the leather fibres pores open allowing the proteins and collagens to be absorbed readily. Park the car in direct sunlight, cover seats with black plastic trash bags, and roll up the windows to create a steam room to allow the Rejuvenator to fully penetrate into the hides.

Leatherique is not suitable for use on coated leather, but for un-coated leather upholstry it is propably the best out there

I use Lexol to clean or Woolite mix with a stiff brush to agitate out the dirt. Then I use Zaino Z-10 for a conditoner. The smell is insane, and gives a great finish. 303 is great for the dash and plastic, but I am not sure I like it on the leather, it give an artificial feel.

Here is my interior 2001 325i
