Never mind...I just found out that BMW doesn't make it anymore.

I guess I'm going to use 303 unless any detailing aficionado's know of anything better to protect rubber seals, etc.

Yep, tried to get this stuff a few months back from BMW but they had already discontinued it. FYI tho, gummi pflege isn't a proprietary product of BMW. You can still buy it, just not from BMW. I bought 3 bottles for myself from another source, here:

http://www.drivewerks.com/catalog/sh...inszt_pg10.htm

For anyone not familiar with this product, it's a great product that's gotten great reviews for many years now. Here's a description:

Conditions and maintains weather seals around doors, windows, and trunk lids with an easy-to-use built-in foam applicator for simple and mess-free application. Prevents rubber from drying and cracking due to oxidation, extreme temperatures, and UV exposure. Maintains elasticity/flexibility. Restores dried weather seals to original condition. Reduces wind noise due to dry seals. Prevents seals from sticking in freezing temperatures with an anti-freeze agent. Solvent-free, water-based formula.

Oh and if you ever have any creaks due to any rubber seals, this will take of that too. Overall, it's just a good product to apply, whether it's to take care of an already present problem, or just as a maintenance/preventative measure, even on a new car.

So its more preventive maintenance as opposed to a detailing thing, huh? Ive never heard of it! Sounds great though! Is it gunky or messy?

The new BMW product is Carbaflo. It is said to last longer, but it is expensive at ~ $40 and it is a small tube. But a little goes a very long way.

Silocone based products like Gummipfledge can have a detrimental impact on rubber after prolonged use.

Any personal experience with the Carbaflo?

Well, I guess you can consider it a car care product, which, to me, goes hand-in-hand with detailing, especially when it comes to stuff I can see easily during everyday use of the car.

I use it on the flocked portion of the door trim to correct the common door rattle issue. Good stuff.
