Well after driving 30+ years and owning 40+ cars I finally have one with leather interior. I know how to clean and protect fabric, plastic, rubber, vinyl, paint, alloys ect. but I know nothing about leather. Can someone (and I know it's gonna be many someones) recomend a good leather cleaner and protectant for my gray leather interior.

One piece of advice, stay away from Armor-all. It wll ruin your leather and your vinyl dash in no time.
Mother's & Meguires both sell quality 3-step cleaner/conditioners,
and Turtle wax makes a very good conditioner that I have picked up on my US trips in Big Lots for 3$. It works great once the leather is cleaned. Makes the leather really nice and soft, and help against the common checking lines.

Apparently Leatherique is the best followed by Lexol.

I use Leatherique..........it was quite expensive, but made the leather pretty soft, and cleaned it well (light taupe gets dirty easy).

Same position you are...

Just got my first "leather" car too. The owners manual specifically stated NOT to to use leather conditioner on the leather; that it could actually harm the leather or finish. I'm in Texas, I worry about it cracking. I've cleaned it with "Blue Magic" Leather and Vinyl Cleaner, which cleaned very well. Do I condition it?
