Some people have been asking about leather conditioning. I have used Leatherique for the past 2 years, and have been literally amazed with the results. I think Rolls Royce recommends this stuff to owners. It is an oil-type conditioner, and can make the nastiest, hardest dried out leather very soft again. It will make most minor cracks disappear, and can make your leather very soft and supple again. I have a 98 328ic, and my seats look and feel brand new. The stuff is fairly pricey, but the results are far better than anything else I've tried, like Lexol or Meguires. No, I don't work for the company. Just a raving fan. 'Cause the stuff actually works.
