my dad used the patch kit on his old jaguar but he did not like the results. lexol is your best bet in my opinion for leather cleaning. gives that great leather smell to it also.

It would help if I had leather, but we're going to try some Leatherique on the 5er.

leatherique, its a little expensive and time consuming (apply and let sit for 2 days) but its well worth it, leaves your seats absolutely new. www.leatherique.com
