    Hi Ladies & Gents,

    I was curious about the products everyone is using at home to clean and take care of your car interior especially the nice leather we have in these UDMs.

    This is geared towards cleanliness and preserving the high end leather and BMW new interior smell rather than fancy detailing per say.

    Also what is your cleaning frequency for the OCD and germophobes out there?

    I've tried a whole range of interior detailing products and am looking for options for a more natural home based approach with minimal chemicals. We all have time in our hands now with the MCO.

    On a seperate note, has anyone found a remedy for scratches on the F series I drive screens? And also the wear and tear on climate control buttons and parking brake button? I already wasted time and money on some allegedly brand new "replacement buttons" that didn't fit, thought I'd get some opinions here.

    Looking forward to your suggestions and comments!

    Been using TurtleWax leather conditioner since my e46 days till now. Spray & wipe evenly. Used it even on the dash. Leather becomes softer & n shinier. Never tried other products though. Used it every 2-3 mths. Never tried those germs cleaners/nano cloud thingie too.

    For the buttons, I have accepted its fate & moved on to other replacements that’s more into preventive maintenance. Hehehe....

    Nice topic...been looking around for some leather cleaner / conditioner that preserves so called that original 'BMW smell' in the car. Came across a brand highly recommended by some BMW enthusiasts called 'Zaino Z-10'. Anyone tried this brand before?
    Appreciate to share your experience.

    Hi there, I’m getting my bimmer soon and I’m planning to use CarPro to do my own detailing. The Reset for wash, the Inside for interior cleaning, the Perl for interior upkeep and protectant from our hot Sun and lastly, the Reload to top up / maintain my ceramic coating after car wash...
