Have a 84 325e ( E30 ) and even though the bosy of the car looks very good, the interior is another story. Seats haven't cracked yet ... but you can tell they are dry. Oh , and they are pretty dirty !!! ( may I add , that I just purchased this vechile from a chharity auction , so the filth is not from me ! ) . Any suggestions on what to use to clean it that will not dry out more and also what to use to un-due the dryness ??

You didn't say if it was leather or cloth but I am assuming it is leather. I would say buy a bottle of leather cleaner/conditioner and get to work.

Something like this http://www.autopia-carcare.com/1z-291141.html

I would do an application about every week until you like how they look. Provided the leather has not cracked yet, you should still be good (hopefully)

I used to use zymol before, but when ir ent out, my dad bought me some meguiar's, works pretty darn good, I haven't bought any zymol since bcs I haven't ran out of the meguiar's yet. here is a link to it:

I hear they also got the same thing that I use with aloe, that should take care of what you need.
