Default Leather Interior and other questions

Any suggestions for a good conditioner for the leather interior? I've been using stuff you rub in and then wipe off. The leather is still in excellent condition and I want to keep it that way. Any spray conditioner suggestions ?

Also, I want to change the air filter myself -is it ok to get it from autozone?

The guy at the oil quick change place said my fuel filter should be changed every 30K miles - is that true?

The fuel filters are cheap enough that it wouldn't be objectionable to change them every 30k as a preventative maintenance procedure, but it isn't necessary at that interval. I will be replacing my fuel filter after 50k along with the PCV valve (positive crankcase ventilation). Also at 50k, I'll be flushing the trans just to make sure that everything is going well inside. Back to the fuel filter... Another reason why I might consider a shorter change interval with mine is to make sure that the threaded connections don't have enough time to corrode up and make it more difficult to remove the next time. One thing you don't want to do is put too much antiseize on them where the antiseize would get into the fuel system post filter. It will clog up the injectors in no time.

On the leather conditioner. I had used Meguiar'* wipes with VERY good results. The leather in my B'ville was never all that dirty, but in my Bravada, it was filthy when we bought it. The wipes did the trick and it is now very nice and clean. After the wipes ran out, I bought some of their liquid leather conditioner and really haven't used it yet. I don't think that it is going to be as easy as the wipes, but it work and it is cheaper than the wipes.

My car would be more of a twin to yours than Kennginn'*. These cars are loads of fun and very comfortable. I can't wait until my warranty runs out and I can 'catch' the mod bug as just about everyone else on this site has already.
