    Until mow I've used meguiars leather conditioner on my 323 but I'd like to know what is the best leather cleaner especially if I have nappa leather (black)?

    I've heard good things about the zymol cleaner and conditioner and I'm not going to let price dictate so just want to know the best product and why ?

    Gliptone cleaner and conditioner is arguably the definitive leather cleaner

    I genuinely dont believe the pics of the Vader seats

    IS that really just the gliptone cleaner and conditioner or did you dye it first?

    The Nappa leather I have in mind has similar light scratches on that look yellowy/creamy in colour - did the gliptone really just turn them black? If so I'm sold

    the kit i bought was a scuffmaster kit that came with the cleaner the dye and the conditioner!
    those results are from using the dye! no cleaner on its own is gonna turn them black again if they're scuffed!

    the kit i got was from bespoke leathering as i got a discount through a forum
    so it was only £35ish iirc! and he knows his stuff so he'd advise on what dye you'd need!

    Gliptone cleaner and conditioner really is the be all and end all with regards to maintenance of your leather mate

    EDIT: John at bespokeleathering.com will look after all your leather needs

    I've found the website and he's in Brum which is nice and close but there is no contact number - do you have one for him?
