    leather care recommendations

    Gents
    can anyone recommend me good products for leather cleaning, care etc
    I have just purchased another interior for my E36, it has a few marks that i would like to get out, i have already tried autoglym leather cleaner but it wasn't much cop to be honest

    also I cant quite identify the colour its a sort of off yellow



    I'm stuck between saffron yellow and maize yellow

    I just pulled the lower bench out and there isn't a piece of paper listing the colour
    however there is a piece of paper that contains the build date, chassis number etc so I'll give the stealers a phone tomorrow and get the spec sheet
