Kind of a dumb question, but being a BMW rookie, I am honestly not sure... Better safe to ask then feel really dumb if you mess something up.

Reading reviews on detailing and such, I came across "Auto Sport Interior Vinyl Protection". It honestly does an AMAZING job on the inside (tested on my truck, which was a mess). However, my truck does not have any leather, so I was free to use on just about any surface that was vinyl, plastic, etc.

So what exactly in the 2002 330i with sport is leather? Obviously the seats, more than likely the steering wheel wrap, anything else? I'm just trying to avoid hitting any other areas in the car that might appear to be surfaced vinyl, but are actually real leather. This product probably wouldn’t kill the leather, but I'm sure isn't exactly good for it.

The door panels, the seats, the streering wheel, the shifter, the center console top. Thats all I can think of off the top of my head.

Would you typically use leather cleaner/treatment on those items as well, similar to the seats? Or do we do the seats primarily as that's what takes the most wear/tear?

Thanks.

Anything that is Leather, gets leather conditioner.

Makes sense to me. Anyone else know of any other leather parts?

Thanks again.
