Dashboard Material

I have just purchased a 318i 2004 M series will leather interior(black). Can any tell me whether the dash is leather. I want to clean the car and want to make sure that I do not use something that I should not.

I really dunno for a fact, but leather on a dashboard is very unlikely.

Thanks.
I am making the assumption that where their is stitching it is leather. Therefore central console arm rest, seats, gear stick cover, steering wheel, part of the door fittings etc.
