Default Leather care......

I know this will prob be moved but, what are the best products for leather conditioning and proper care.
Have had my Bonnie for 3 months now and the gray leather seats are starting to show wear lines.
I know leather is a pain to keep up but,I don't want them getting any worse or god forbid start to wear out and tear!!!!

Comeon' Will and the rest of the experts.....give me some guidance

I have used Meg'* Gold Class leather spray. My seats went from ****, to pretty damn good. The improvment on my seats is incredible, and I used to clean them daily, and I still come out with a dirty rag when i'm all done. The stuff is incredible, and for $5/bottle, cheap too!

A good mild soap will take most of the dirt away and clean the leather. I use the armor all leather wipes in between

I used McGuire wipes on my 93'. It changed the color a little until the coating came off. It protected the leather but I didn't care for the discoloration.

I don't reccomoned the armorall leather wipes. They leave the leather slick and really crinkly....when you sit down or move around it makes a crinkly noise until the stuff wears off. I use meguiars conditioner and haven't noticed any discoloration (tan interior)
