The red leather driver's seat in my Z4 has taken on a dark film compared to the passenger seat that isnt used as much.

Ive tried the leather seat wipes recommended by a few on here specially made for car leather and, also tried a very well known 'milky' fluid spray also especially for car leather. None of these seem to do the trick.

I only wear suit like trousers and dont wear jeans so its not dye out of these. Ive had the car from new (now three and a half year old) and am a little surprised at the difference between the drivers and the passenger side.

Gliptone leather twins for me, used them on my last 3 cars, corking results!

I have tended to find that wiping the leather first with a cloth (lightly dampened with warm water) opens the 'pores' of the leather. Thereby getting a far better result from the cleaning fluid.

Like Torque, Gliptone 'twins' really does work well...even on the toughest of grime.

Both products have been mentioned on here but, as I didnt really rate either of them, I didnt think it fair to post the names or either manufacturers :wink:

Thanks all for the suggestions, I'll have a looksee.
