Baby wipes. Every time. Or a weak APC solution and a nailbrush.

Have you thought about getting the seats steam-cleaned first ?

Whatever you do avoid Meguiars leather wipes - they've totally ruined the look of my black leather!

I use BMW leather protector - it cleans as well, and it smells nice, then to stain guard it L1 Leather Guard by Gtechniq (I've got the Oyster leather - nightmare to look after!)

The AutoGlym leather conditioning cream isn't that impressive either IMO. The spray cleaner is fine, but the cream is a bit of a waste of time and money.

Have used several leather cleaner & conditioners over the years but Gliptone liquid leather is by far the best.

Looking at your picture I don't think there is any product that is going to get that out. It looks burned or stained.

Lemon is a bastard to keep clean. I find that if I get in the car when it's raining sometimes the leather discolours slightly due to wet clothes. Lemon Dakota looks lovely, but how long it stays lovely is another thing. Off the back of this thread I shelled out on some Gliptones cleaner and conditioner but I've not had time to do it yet...

Thanks for your replies guys.
I have spoken to a couple of leather specialists, and it looks like that I will have to get it recoloured.

I've just bought the autoglym products and I have beige leather in my 325 aswell. I'll be giving it a go tomorrow and let you know if it's any good.

Regarding the heated seats its better to turn them on when cleaning the leather. It softens it up so you can clean them better.


Also another happy Gliptone user here.
