Re: Leather cleaner and protector?

I'm sure it's coated but the dash right where the leather folds over towards the gauges get so very dry.

Re: Leather cleaner and protector?

Thanks for bringing this up again. After a year of ownership of my 2012 I have just been using a damp cloth. Still think there may be something better given the dash is in the sun most of the time.

Re: Leather cleaner and protector?

As I mentioned in this thread but as an update, The CG Leather conditioner is good stuff. I have stayed away from the cleaner(to harsh IMHO). I use the damp cloth (as others have mentioned) then put the CG Leather conditioner on. After about 15 minutes I go back over it with a microfiber cloth to make sure the finish is nice and matt, the way I want it. I recommend it. The smell is awesome too. I am pretty sure you can get it from our forum sponsor too?

Re: Leather cleaner and protector?

Haven't tried Chemical Guys, have used Lexol for years, and recently Griots. Was reading on DI about Leatherique, and will probably try some. Thought I read on DI that if you scratch the leather with your nail(in a inconspicuous place) and it doesn't change color, it's coated, if it changes color, it isn't coated. Armor All, well my brother didn't listen, and his leather cracked apart on an older Grand...I think it has some alcohol in it, which eventually dries out whatever you put it on, then you gotta keep putting it on, etc. The Griots leather conditioner I used on our jeep, seemed to not only get light dirt(finger prints, rain marks on door handle, etc) out easily and seemed to soften up the leather, not greasy, buffed with a MF and it had a nice natural feel to it. They also have a rejuvenator for severely neglected leather. Used Meg's wipes on a previous car once...holy shine batman, looked like tire shine on the seats. As a side note, damp cloth will get most of any dirt on your leather out, but if you need a cleaner, make sure it's a high quality made for leather cleaner, not some Autozone "all in one" cleaner and protectant...ask my brother.
