The best for leather and upholstery/carpeting??

What are the best products for leather cleaning/conditioning and for upholstery/carpeting?? Picking up my 2009 CPO in a couple of days.

I have a couple of dark marks on the roof lining, the moonroof trim, and sun visor I need to get out. I assume I should be patient and dab but not rub, right?? I definitely don't want to make it worse. Have Beige interior.

Also have a couple of marks on the hard plastic and one on the dashboard

Thanks for any help any of you can provide.

Also have beige interior. Lexol cleaner and conditioner works great on the leather. For the hard plastic and other interior components get a bottle of 303 aerospace, and for the scuff marks on the hard plastic like on the bottom of the seat and door trim you can use a little degreaser. Consider the BMW all weather mats instead of the beige carpets!

I have heard great things about about leatherique's rejuvenator oil and prestine clean. Also, I believe Autoglym Leather Care Cream is recommended by the Rolls Royce factory! I have not tried either, but have been wanting to for a while...Hope that helps.

I found Zaino leather cleaner to work better than leatherique. Smells better too.

zep for washing carpets, folex for stains, 303 aerospace for the dash/vinyl, mr clean magic eraser for those shoe marks on the bottom of the doors/seat trims..and the leatherique stuff for your leather (apply it and let it sit under the sun for a while..i never used it but it seems to get the best reviews)
