Re: Saddle Interior Protectant- best product?

^^ Lingo is funnin' with us... no one in their right mind would use WD-40 on a leather interior? Unless you wanted the dash and trim leather to pop right off the adhesive?? As for the smell, that would be reminiscent of a road trip with Hunter S. Thomson. . . but I digress. ;D

My brother-in-law owns a Porsche GTS a MB GL450 and a BMW 535i, and he swears by a product called Leatherique (16oz Kit). Has anyone tried this on their Saddle?

Yes and no. I figured that by now somebody, somewhere would have tried this. There are some people that treat WD-40 like holy water from the pope.

Re: Saddle Interior Protectant- best product?

Is there anywhere you can buy this stuff in Western Canada..... any shops in Alberta specifically. I can order online but get raped on shipping. The Zymol Leather Cleaner that is!

Thanks,
JD

Re: Saddle Interior Protectant- best product?

I have a 2012 Overland Brilliant Black with the saddle black interior.

I've used Zymol for over a decade. Mercedes recommended Zymol until they started selling repackaged products with their name on it.

Yes Zymol gives the leather a slight sheen but it does dissipate fairly quickly. I buff with a cotton towel and it's not a big deal.

My last two MB's had vented seats and the leather was new looking when I sold them. Each was four years old.

Re: Saddle Interior Protectant- best product?

You're all going to call me crazy, but after my dealer has already agreed to replace my seat covers I decided to do a little test to see if I could get rid of the dry feeling the leather had. Mind you I use conditioning wipes on my leather every week when I clean it and the seats still cracked at 6000 miles.

I used good old fashion Mink oil, and guess what the seats are soft, supple and do not look like I just armor all them. I applied the Mink oil by hand making sure I didn't a) get the summit logo in the head rest and b) not go directly over the stitching or the perforations. I did do all four seats the center console, the doors as well as the dash. I let everything set for about 12 hours and then wiped everything down very thoroughly with a towel until all the sheen was gone. I wish i had taken some before and after pictures of the driver seat because there is a huge difference in the area that is notorious for cracking.
