I've been using 303 Aerospace for years, hands down the best IMO for interiors and protectants....Unless you're looking for a super greasy wet look.

I've heard 303 Aerospace is amazing, but it smells bad. Ever tried Meguiar's Quik Interior Detailer Cleaner?

Meguiars QID or 1Z Cockpit Detailer is what I prefer (both are very similar to one another). I have (and use) 303 but I don't like anything that imparts a sheen. While not "greasy", 303 does have a satin-like shine. 1Z and QID leave a clean, OEM finish. It really depends on your preference.

Its strictly an all purpose cleaner so of course it wont have any other sort of finish but it will leave a residue that needs to be rinsed with the application of a damp towel. I use meguiars APC+ myself but not as a regular maintenance product (only in rare cases for more thorough cleaning if needed). In those cases I use either a damp towel or a "spray and wipe" type product for dusting/light cleaning.

Another thumbs up for aerospace 303! Helps in protecting the dash and looks great. Also doubles as tire shine and can be used to do your outside plastics.

303 doesn't leave that yellow, greasy film that Amorall does after it has been on for awhile.

Though I still have trouble using it on outside plastic trim without leaving streaks.

No dressing for me...I use a clothes steamer to steam clean my dash. Works great and doesn't leave a glossy finish or weird/fake smell.

Meguiar's QID is amazing stuff. I use Meguiar's APC to clean it and then follow it up with QID. I've used 303 in the past and liked it, but I prefer QID.

I recently did a car and was asked to make the dash shiney, the customer is always right, so I did. The only shiney product that I had on me was Meguiar's Hyperdressing (3:1) so I used that. Hyperdressing can be used on anything Plastic, Vinyl or rubber, so it didn't harm it, just an odd request to me. Shiney = reflective on the glass and hard to see the road, but hey, not my car.

I've been using Aerospace 303 since day one on my car and almost 5 years later my interior and window trim is still mint. Thats 5 NY winters and summers of abuse. Plus i dont really like the greasy look aerospace kept it looking exactly how i got it from the dealer

Megs QID.
No shine so it looks normal. No dash really shines like what ADs make you think...

1z Cockpit premium for maintenance dusting, Optimum Protectant for protection and conditioning, leaves a factory look and actually protects instead of just dressing. Plus it stays a little more damp on the first wipe than 303 which means its less likely to streak like 303 does. QID from Megs is great as well.

#40 from Meguiar's is a severely underrated product that leaves a matte finish and provides serious protection as well. Right along with OPP is one of the better interior protectants on the market.
