I generally recommend the Leatherique Prestine Clean and Leatherique Rejuvenator Oil. If you want to read more about these products check out this article http://www.detailedimage.com/Ask-a-P...r-care-how-to/. Let me know if you have any questions about the Leatherique products.

My Ride: BMW 330cic
I bought a 30ml bottle from the ledertechnik shop on ebay. I got the hellbeige 2 color (light beige 2), dye only for my e46 cabrio. It comes in a small ziploc bag with a sponge. Shipping from Berlin to SF Bay Area took almost 2 weeks.

Some notes:
* Color matching was pretty close. At night it's virtually impossible to tell where I had used the dye; during the day, it's slightly easier to notice, but not unless you're looking for it. I'd say it was very slightly lighter/pinker than the OEM leather (this could be also because my leather has some dirt between the cracks that the cleaner couldn't get out, making the contrast stronger).
* 30ml is only enough to do half of a seat bottom (or maybe like 2 armrests), not a whole seat bottom like they say.
* It's a bit difficult to apply, since it tends to bubble up if you use the included sponge. This then leads to splotches of the stuff on the leather if you're not careful; I think I'll use a paintbrush next time. You also have to apply multiple layers.
* The end result is not all that shiny, and feels a bit rough - not like sandpaper, maybe something more akin to a rubber eraser; my leather was pretty slick and shiny before. I feel like with enough rubbing on clothes, this roughness will eventually cause the paint to rub off. Will probably have to buy some kind of leather sealer to make it smooth and have at least a semi-gloss finish to it, and so that clothes can glide easily over the paint.

Overall, I'd probably buy it again just because of my color match which I can't seem to find anywhere else. Just make sure you buy more than you think you need. Will try and update in a few months time to see how it holds up.
