Hi Guys,

I have an '89 328 with red and crema interior (Seats and door panels are crema, the door pulls, map pockets are red and dashboard are red). All that has ever been used on the interior is Connolly hide food (or whatever they call it now...I heard the FDA had an issue with them calling it food).

The interior looks great, but if the car is out side in the sun on hot days it seems like the Connolly Hide Food starts to dry out or evaporate pretty quickly.

Someone suggested trying Lexol. I have never used this product, and wondered if others have tried it or have any other recommendations. My main concern it having the interior look its best, and I don't want to use anything that might change or darken the leather.

Thanks in advance for any comments or suggestions.
Dino

Dino,

I've used the Connolly Hide Food, Lexol and Griot's Garage products. They all seem to work pretty well and really haven't developed a preference for one over the other. None of the products have hurt the leather, even the 40 year old original leather in one of my cars.

Steve

Hi Steve,

Thanks for your input regarding various leather care products. I just tried Lexol last weekend on the red leather parts of the interior such as the dashboad and door pulls and I was very pleased. I have also used Conolly Hide Food, but find it dries out on the dashboard too quicky and I'm afraid in sunlight it doesn't protect and mosturize it for very long. The Lexol seems like it won't evaporate so quickly leaving longer lasting protection on the dashboard. I'll probably continue to use the Hide Food too, particularly on the crema portions of the interior, but I was quite pleased with the Lexol.

Thanks again for your thoughts on these products.
Best regards,
Dino
