does the Chemical guys one leave a matte finish or a shiny one? I read some of the Amazon reviews and im confused.

Looking for a matte finish with no sheen or gloss.

It has a little sheen, but its the best one I have found. I think the slight sheen is from the conditioner that is built in. The seats feel good afterwards and It has a really good smell to it also. If I think about this weekend when I clean the car, I'll snap a before and after pic.

Leather care

BMW LEATHER CARE IS VERY GOOD , SAFE AND ALREADY TESTED BY BMW. The leather in todays cars is coated. **Keep blue jeans with hardware or jackets with metal hardware far away from your seats.

I've been using Sonax Leather Cleaning Wipes with great success for the last ~4k miles. I have Ivory Merino Full Leather and it makes spot cleaning easy.



Even comes in a handy container that sits in the door pocket perfectly.

sfscott, I applied Carpro’s CQuartz leather coating to Coffee Merino leather when our X5 was new. I occasionally apply Leatherique to it (out of habit?) and use Leather Masters Leather Dye Transfer Cleaner whenever I sense the leather is becoming discolored. With the coating, any transferred dye comes right off, and the leather returns to its original matte finish on high-use surfaces (i.e., left thigh bolster on driver’s seat). The leather has kept its original look and feel after 2+ years and 30,000 miles.
