Lexol vs Gritos Leather care kits

Has anyone used Gritos's leather car products such as this? <br><A HREF="http://www.griotsgarage.com/product/car+care/interior+detailing/leather+care+spray+kit.do" TARGET="_blank">http://www.griotsgarage.com/pr...it.do</A><p>The original owner of my R used this stuff and highly recommended it. The interior of my R is spotless and it still smells brand new. It was s few months since he did the interior and I didn’t want to wait to get these products in the mail so I went to the local Pepboys and picked up the Lexol leather cleaner and conditioner spray. So far i have been satisfied. <p>Is one better than the other or is it just personal preference. <p>Also how often do you guys condition your interiors?<br>

Why mess with something that's PROVEN?<br>Mild soap and water then LEXOL conditioner works wonders on R leather especially Atacama

Griots stuff is always top notch but sometimes overpriced. Lexol definitely works great and is widely available.

Jim your right it is proven just wondering what others used..<br>Yeah my family has always used Lexol, Moms old 740 turbo and dad lexus LS400. It's funny when I used the lexol on the R I had a flash back to sitting in these cars as a kid and the smell is the same. <br>

I'm a Leatherique/Griots guy.<p>You won't catch me using Lexol.<p>Joe's VR is proof that Leatherique works better. <IMG NAME="icon" SRC="http://********************/smile/emthup.gif" BORDER="0">

After years of using Lexol...which sucks I moved onto Leatherique but it built up over time on my M3 and the M Coupe plus it is a PITA to apply with the cleaner / conditioner. Now I use Spinneybeck and it works amazingly well. Give it a shot, easy to apply and doesn't build up like some of the others out there.

Re: (JRL)

I can attest to Leatherique as I have used both.. and I went back to Lexol after a very very detailed soap down of my seats.. the Lexol just absorbs into the leather. I have 30k and I am a big dude and my seats look new.. ok few wrinkles .. But I use something else that no one does.. and I dont want to be made fun of so I wont post it. <IMG NAME="icon" SRC="http://www.vwvortex.com/vwbb/smile.gif" BORDER="0"> <IMG NAME="icon" SRC="http://www.vwvortex.com/vwbb/embeer.gif" BORDER="0">
