Spring is here and I would like to do what I can to keep the leather soft and prevent cracking in my LX.
What have you used? Does it help? Please name products, process etc.

I am trying to prevent that dreaded first crack in the leather seats.

X2 on leatherique. I previously used lexol but, while it's fine, i thought there must be something better as I considered replacing the leather altogether. I found leatherique on high end sportscar forums bc I figured those folks would care the most. I applied the conditioner generously, used a toothbrush as well as brush on drill and let sit for hrs. wiped it off with the leatherique cleaner. Make sure you use a lint free cloth

I used Leatherique pretty religiously and still had problems with my front seat bottoms. I do like the product thought. Maybe I started too late in the life of the leather (started after about 8 to 9 years but the leather looked good then).

Colorplus has a similar product, which as far as I can tell is just some type of conditioning oil. Joanne at Colorplus is great to work with and is a wealth of knowledge.

If you plan on ordering, hold up for a day or so. I am working on a mud wide group buy with George from Leatherique. Will let you know what I find out....

Let us know Jon - I'm pretty religious on leather care, but the LC is now 15 years old and . . . well, you know.

Leatherique is the bomb...I've used it for several years on a couple of BMW's I've had. Interested in details of the group buy.

Perfect timing, cleaning up my leather is the next project on the list! I'm interested in the group buy also.

My preference is Bick 4 Leather conditioner. Great stuff.

If I have to re-dye faded or worn leather, i add a small amount of whatever color I need in a small container, mix it and apply with cloth. Cleans, and re-stains at the same time.

I've had excellent luck with Fiebing dyes.
