    Hi guys, I'm new to this leather interior business so need some advice on what to use to clean it and maintain it??

    The leather in my car is in about as good condition as you could expect from a 6 year old car and i'm determined to keep it that way!

    I use the AG stuff as well and it does a top job.

    I take it that you bought that black 325ti then?

    I always thought gliptone would have been expensive but its only £5.95 for a 250ml bottle not bad to be honest. Currently i'm using Carplan leather cleaner, was on sale at a fiver for 500ml so thought i'd give it a try, can't complain its lifted alot of dirt out of my cream leathers and gives a leathery smell too.

    Used the Carplan leather cleaner on my cream leather as well. I had just bought the car and I dont think that the previous owner had spent much time on leather care. Seems to do a good job, lifted plenty dirt and gave it a nice feel and smell, better still it was on special in the local Asda for £1.50 for a 500ml tin.

    Me being a typical Scotsman bought two of them at that price.
