it really does a nice job refreshing the dried out leather, removing the blue dye from my jeans, and leaving behind a nice leathery scent to fill the cabin.

the seats feel smoother and almost slippery so that one can wiggle around effortlessly while seated. before, i was getting stuck to the seat and they felt really dry and stiff.

highly recommended
Good to know! BTW do you have the heated/cooling seats? If so how do you keep the cleaner from collecting around the edges of the venting circular holes?

By any chance are you using the same kit that comes with the window cleaner and the Mercedes bag?

My interior kit has the bag in the picture, but everything else is different, my kit has the window cleaning spray and "cockpit lotion" but its not in a aerosol can,its bottle with liquid in it, thats why I'm freaking out. Maybe i have a older version or something?

Can not go wrong with leather in a bottle. Sold my 2010 mazda in april with 60k miles, and the new owners were talking amongst themselves on the leather smell. Im sure its gone now

Edit: woo hoo my 100th post!

Hey Martin, sorry I missed your request... On line only. Shipping is not cheap and the stuff is expensive...you'll love it...it is a straght conditioner, so youll need a cleaner.. Have not tried their z9 cleaner, but got something a pep boys...just make sure its cleaner only and not cleaner conditioner..
