M2 Leather Care

I used Leatherique in my e39 as that is what the guys on the forums swore by, but I am a little concerned about the blue stitching on these seats and losing their color with a cleaner/conditioner.

Has anyone had good results with a leather care product?

not from what I have personally read while researching. Conditioning won't actually be absorbed by the leather since there is a clear coat.

but as always DYOR

I use Leatherique on the steering wheel, because I happen to have it. It's definitely the kind of leather that absorbs conditioner (compared to the seats where the conditioner just sits on the coating) so i assume it should be treated every now and then.

I've used Lexol for years. Steering wheel in my last GTI at nearly 100k miles looked super nice. Guy who bought my e46 M3 at 81k miles commented on how new the steering wheel looked.
