Correct Piers, I have the softer Heritage leather which actually needs more looking after than the tougher Nappa you have.

You can order it from the uk site:

Check out their NXT wax as well, superb stuff and great value :byee55amg

I have used Hide Food but you need to use a cleaner first. I like the convenience of the two-in-one product (and it works!).

To apply:

1. Don't use too much or it'll be very hard to get off
2. Apply in overlapping circles and leave to cure
3. Buff off with lots of clean cotton cloths
4. Make sure you do all the tricky bits (under thighs, behind headrests etc.)

I use Autoglym for my interior. It works very well. What I like best about it is that it keeps the original texture of the leather. It doesn't make it greasy or shinny, leaves it more natural. My 2 cents.

I was so impressed with Zaino acrylic waxes, I thought I'd try Zaino's "Leather in a Bottle". Super-easy, nice supple look. Wipe it on, you don't even have to wipe it back off. I've had two people comment on the smell in two different cars ..."Still smells like new" they say.

About $10.

not anything new, but i've been happy with zymol treat, zaino leather in a bottle (both products look, smell and feel very similar) and leatherique. The leatherique is definately the most work, but i think the results are the best. When you've got some time to spend on the leather, it's great. For a quick wipe down/dressing, the zymol or zaino is the way to go.

A couple of friends and I run a car detailing service in the Chicagoland area. We bring everything to the owners home and do the detailing there because most people hate leaving their cars anywhere. We only cater to higher end cars and we have the best experience with Lexxol cleaner and condtioner. One of our customers had an 01' Yellow 360 Modena, the leather came out better than it was in the showroom!!!! Message me if you have any questions
