After looking through a lot of your new car prep threads, I find it completely ridiculous the condition that the dealers sell brand new cars in.

Can't wait for the summer to come so I can clean my car up. Had my car opti coated by a dealer so it actually wasn't bad when I received the car from them.

Love your threads man, they always inspire me to keep my car in good condition. What do you like for cleaning and maintaining leather? I've been using Lexol and I'm pretty happy with it, but it doesn't have the nice smell of the Armor All or whatever the previous owner used.

there are a few good ones that we use.

for something quick
Sonax Leather Foam

1Z einszett Leathercare

or

a bit more in depth
Leather Master Kit

the above will produce matte oem finishes

Thanks man! I will try out either the einszett or the Sonax once I run out of Lexol.

Did they use sandpaper during the dealer prep, amazed by all the scratches on there. Looks great as always when you guys get done!
