    How much is that stuff. I too dont have any cracks yet (and want to keep it that way) so is there a good product out there simply for cleaning and protecting??

    The Gliptone Liquid Leather Cleaner and Conditioner are very good products (and can be used as standalone products) and are available to buy separately - SwissVax also make very good leather products but are ££££'s..

    A few years back my brother rested a wheel on the rear seats (silver leather). It left a mark on the base of the seat which I am having trouble to get rid of. Anyone know of something that will take off old stains on leather ?

    some of you might be aware that I bought a full black leather interior for my Compact in need of drastic TLC (1998 E36 316i Compact Interior Swap)

    I'm currently in the process of cleaning, conditioning and dying them.. making pretty decent progress - so thought I'd share some before pics and how they currently look.

    BEFORE:


    CURRENT:


    Now all they need is a final colour wash (probably 80% water and 20% dye) to balance the colour out completely.. and I need to complete the seat repair (lever for lift mechanism) on the passenger side now that I picked up all the parts from BMW this morning! - I'll post a how to on this once done as I think it's quite a common issue.. and repeat the process for the back seats! and then get it all installed!

    EDIT: completed the final colour wash now and I'm happy with the results!! - here's some more pictures and a side by side comparison:

    FINISHED:

    Hi mate

    Just a quickie, pretty sure the leather in the OP matches the colour of my X5's interior. What colour did you order from that website as there are about 20 variations on grey?

    Cheers
