What is the best product to use to clean the seats/door cards/dash.

I've always used Autoglym leather cream on my 911 seats but they were not Connolly hide. I've seen this official Collonny product advertised:

What do u guys use?:huh:

Also is the leather around the dash Collonny too?, as it dosen't seem to be the same quality as the seats.

Surely as this is made by Collonny, it must be better.

For cleaning I've used everything from Halfords leather cleaner upwards including Meguires (sp?). I've also used the Zymol leather stuff & I think the Meguires stuff probably did the best job. The Zymol just seemed to sit on the surface which I think is more of an issue with the way the leather in the 328 is - the original finish seems to very much sit on top of the leather rather than be a part of it if that makes sense.

I am going go down the Leatherique route later in the year though because there are some areas (drivers seat etc) that need some more serious help now.

If you do a search on FChat for leatherique you will find a number of threads from people who have used it to restore interiors.

The Connolly kit is good if you just want to clean it and feed it, if you need to re-colour it you could try these, I have and obtained excellent results:
