  1. Hey guys, I was wondering if you had any general recommendations for interior cleaning and care. What products have you found to give the best end results in terms of clean, shine, streak free, residue free? Other pro tips are welcomed!
     
  2. Wondering the same here. I haven't cleaned my interior since I bought my car 11 months ago...
     
  3. I recommend AMMO NYC leather cleaner and conditioner.

    I use aerospace 303. Not shiny but a nice clean new look. It is also fairly easy to find locally.

    I switched from Griots to 303 and notice that it lasts much longer and helps keep dust down a lot better, which is a huge plus for me since I open my windows every chance I get. Still use griots on the leather but want to try something different.

    Walmart has it in the marine section. If not most boat dealerships carry it. I know that sounds odd but it is a UV protectant.
     
  9. Oops wrong thread. Is there a way to delete posts?
     
  10. I took my entire interior out last month and figured that would be a good time to give the leather a good cleaning. I snagged a bottle of Weiman leather cleaner at Lowes and it worked really well.
     
  11. So I went to the marine section in Walmart and couldn't find 303 so I googled around an no stores local to me have it. You would figure living next to the biggest lakes on the planet people would carry some basic boat cleaner. Oh well I'm about to use some Meguiar's, I'll let you know how it turns out

  12. So I did a quick wipe down on what I thought was a relatively clean interior. These are my results. I used Meguiars QUIK Interior Detailer cleaner on all the plastic, shiny bits, and Meguiars Gold Class Rich Leather 3in1 on the seats, dashboard top and center console. First of all the products smell nice, and they don't leave a residue after you wipe the excess with a plush microfiber. The 3in1 left a nice shine on the dash but the seats look the same to me. No streaks with the quick detailer. 3in1 will leave overspray spots on plastics so be sure to wipe those off.

    I'd try checking autozone for it, that's where I bought it. They also sell Griots interior cleaner which is what I use beforehand.

    Does it leave it shiny looking? I love the matte look of the leather a lot of cleaners make it too shiny looking.

    It doesn't make it look too shiny, it makes red pop though.

    I'll check it out. Thank you!
     
  20. I am a fan of leatherique for, well, the leather. It's a PITA to use but things look wonderful when you're done. Just take your time. My car has 130k on it and I get comments often about how good the interior looks for the age/mileage.

    For the rest of the interior I like Nextzett Cockpit Premium. Shine-free finish -just looks good and clean.
