So I bought some lexol and did up my seats the other day. They definitely seem a little more comfy but not like i would think. So I was searching and some have said lexol doesnt work as good on normal S60 leather as well as it does on R leather. Also, seems though like if any water gets on them they kinda spot too on the leather....anyhow.<p>What do you guys use on your normal S60 leather?

I use it all the time on my sport seats. I think the R guys just say that because they think they are just better than everyone else.

It won't do much<br>The standard leather is like all automotive leathers, it has a very heavy sealent on it so it won't penetrate very much<br>(Can't hurt though)

Re: Lexol on normal S60 leahter (CaptainBeowulf)

I used Lexol on ALL the leather in my S60 this weekend. It seemed to improve things a little bit, but I was hoping for a more drastic improvement. Does it improve with each successive application?

Armorall does make a real leather care product. It comes in pre moistened wipes and it does a good job of cleaning all the dirt and grime off as well as keeping the leather soft and supple. Been using it for three years with no complaints.

A good window tint will block 99% of the sun's UV rays and will keep the your interior in good shape. Might be too late if it's already cracking.
