How often do you condtion your leather?

Just curious on how often everyone here conditions the leather in their X5? and what brands of products have you had the best results with and the worst? I use the Zymol leather conditioner 3 times a year in the spring, before summer, and before the winter starts. I love the results with the Zymol although pricey I still get a lot od compliments in my 04 330ci since the seats look new.

Every 3 months on my e53. I've been using Leatherique on it for almost 8 years now.

Once or twice a month. I've used BMW Leather Conditioner and Zymol with no problems before.

+1 on Lexol... several times a year. It is not expensive at all. My X is 6 years old and the seats look pretty much brand new. No lie.

It's the ultimate product. 2x per year.

I use a product called Raceglaze in the UK and I clean and condition my seats once every 6 months.

I've used gliptone before which has a proper strong leather smell which was good.

Not sure if these products are available in the US
