Zaino has leather in a bottle plus a cleaner. Though I am no expert (but anal none the same), I found that it restored mine back to original condition. Though I prefer a gloss to my dash, I refuse to use silicone products. When I finished, It smelled just like a fresh new leather interior (or shoe ). I think it works great for me. Since I live on the planet Mars, I cant get the OEM cleaners, but every post I have read (and I have read tehm all) regarding this subject, the first recommendation has been the OEM cleaners

He's right. Get the oem products they sell, especially the german made ones. Amazing results. So that's how they make their cpo's look so new and clean.

Just went to the stlr yesterday, and they just came out with a 'cockpit" cleaner..it fills the void the dash cleaner leaves with the plastic stuff..It is an "easy cleaner" that you can just spray all over the place...havent tried it out yet, but I will this weekend...

If you want to clean the dash just use a damp cloth. Thats what the care for your car instructions from BMw says. Works for me.

I've used the cockpit cleaner. I found the product name to be quite fascinating. Hahaha. Best Result. Worth the 10$
