Leather interior care question

This is the first car I've owned to have a leather interior. I just got my new GTO about three weeks ago. It's an '06 CGM Black Interior M6. I'm wondering if there are any suggestions as to the best product to use to clean and conidition the leather. I tried a Meguiar's product today and it left one of my seats looking like I put Soul Glow all over it. So if there's something else that does a great job and keeps the leather looking dry instead of greasy, please let me know. Thanks

I use lexol. At first it looks a little oily but I put extra conditioner on the seats and let it soak in for a couple hours before I drive it.

Zaino Leather In A Bottle is awesome stuff. High quality product, does NOT leave your seats greasy and smells just like leather. I highly recommend the stuff.

Thanks a lot. I definitely give both products a try and see which works best for me.

I've used Leatherique for leather care on my cars for years. It takes some work to do, but IMHO the results are worth it. There are a lot of good products out there though.

Thanks, I'll have this car for a long time, so it'll give me plenty of time to find what's right for me. Thanks again for all of the advise.

Lexol hands down. That has been the secret of car guys for years. I love Zaino have not tried the leather, but saddle products from Lex are proven.

I tried the Meguiar's too (wipes) and wasn't very pleased with it--too shiny. I did wipe it down with a rag, though, and it looked much better.

Keep the car out of the sun and vacuum the seats well every month or two. Be sure to get the crap that can accumulate down by the seams. If you do that, wiping your seats down isn't necessary.

If you have to park your car outside during the day -- Lexol every 90 days.
