I have said this before...go to a furniture store that carries leather furniture. The stuff they have will keep your car looking good for years.

My seats are the dark color, so you can't notice that much difference.

My personal favorite is Leatherique. The two step process works really well. You will be surprised at the dirt that will be removed when you use Leatherique properly.

Me being a military man, I used Kiwi polish for my boots, and did real well keeping the leather looking good. But my seats aren't black, so I took advice on the Lebaron site I was on and got the Kiwi Mink Oil polish. Not only does it put nutrients back into leather, it also makes them water-resistant, making soda spills alot easier to clean up. (Not to mention the occasional "Oops I forgot to close the moonroof last night and now there is dew everywhere)
