Just bought a 97 w/ 30k miles and the bolsters on my seats are in very good shape...I want to keep them that way. I am really careful getting in and out of the car, etc.

For cleaning and conditioning, I bought some Lexol products, but the conditioner doesn't seem rich enough to be that effective. Any suggestions for better products?

Also, what about removing marks? I was wearing a black belt last night and the edge of it must have rubbed a slight hint of coloring onto my gray leather. Lexol didn't remove completely. Any ideas?

Lastly, as I mentioned, my seats are in great shape. No abrasions, shiny spots or tears. BUT, the driver's side is starting to develop flex wrinkles. I know this is normal, but I love the tight, smooth look and feel of a new seat.

Are there any products that "tighten" the leather to bring back that original firm feel?

Thanks for your help,


im friend owns a detailing shop and this is what they do. He tells me leather should be treated just like your own skin, and it works beautifully.
Hope this helps..
