    I have a major problem thats annoying the hell outta me! In my e60 i have the light grey leather an its a nightmare to keep clean. Firstly the plastic are terrible to clean an secondly the leather seems to have dirt in the grain. Im not a scruffy person but with all the bad weather it looks bad. Wat is the best stuff to clean this particular colour leather an plastics ??

    Not sure about the "best" product, others may have a better suggestions - but for value for money I bought some of this for the silver grey leather of my M3. http://cgi.ebay.co.uk/ASTONISH-LEATH...#ht_500wt_1156

    For the price I think it's great, with a microfibre cloth it seems to lift the dirt out pretty well..

    I got baige leather, and when i got it it was pretty gruby and every couple of months i give it a good going over and it gets pretty dirty
    i use on the leather:
    lexol leather cleaner
    lexol leather conditioner

    If you get the lexol in a set it comes with sponge pads for applying and cleaning and MF cloths to wipe it off,

    if its particularly dirty dont be scared to use a nail brush on the leather, leather is very durable, put your cleaner on and give it a good scrub. it will bring the leather up lovely

    As for the plastics i just use a quick detailer, which is primarliy for the outside and is basically sopay water but it really brings the black plastic trim up nicely

    I was just thinking that

    I've been using the Carplan all in one leather cleaner on my cream leather, works perfectly and smells nice and leathery too, £4.99 from halford for 500ml

    I've got some gliptone in the garage haven't used it yet but its in two bottles, i'll probably give it a go in the summerwhen I recolour the leathers
