Have you tried 303? I've heard it's the shiznit. Apparently (from Austin519), our leather is clear-coated and lexol, etc is not as good for it as it would be for non-clear coated leather. 303 is said to do the job much better without the greasy look. I'm going to see if I can find some today myself. :)

I haven't found any leather treatment that makes me fully happy, so for the time being, I'm sticking with my microfiber and water. I've used Lexol and 303, neither REALLY made me go WOW, so i just quit.

If you sweat or have some kind of oil on ur leather damaging the clear coat slowly I think you need more than just microfiber and water.

Just use 303. Lexol doesn't do anything for your leather. In fact nothing will. 303 does protect the clearcoat though...as does Vinylex to some extent. And if you let 303 or Vinylex soak in for a bit then rub off neither are that greasy...Vinylex somewhat and 303 not at all. I've used Zaino, Lexol, and 303, and 303 is the best...and cheapest...and you can use it on everything.

how long does it take for 303 to get dry? I left it for over night about 19 hours, still not completely dry.
It is better under the sun or with window open to dry faster?

It doesn't dry...it soaks in actually. And you may be using too much. You want it to soak in for like 15 mins or so then wipe it off with a dry cloth.

oh i just remember something, when i fist bought the car i applied ARMOR leather protection to the interior :bash:, and i when found out most of the member in here are using LEXOL, so after that i switch to LEXOL. so now everytime it rains, the door panel gets hits by the rain, it will leave a streaks. but i talk to the dealer and they told me come back tomorrow so they can do the interior detail for my car for free. so my question for you guy is that will the clear coat be gone after they do the interior detail?? and will they be able to get rid of the ARMOR??
sorry for typing so long

thanx in advance

Armor all can be removed with rubbing alcohol...and you can't remove the "clearcoat" without serious work...as I said it's bonded with the leather like a waterproofing agent...it's not just sitting on top of the leather. But go get some 303...and/or don't use as much Lexol.

You are. It shouldn't be sticky after you wipe it down after it coats.

Another vote for 303!

Yup, 303 is the way to go. I have been using it for everything from wiper blades, rubber hoses in engine bay, sills, dash, seat, any plastic moldings, etc...

It is great stuff. The one thing I found is to not apply it in sunlight when it is really hot, because it just evaporated before it had a chance to soak in.

Another great thing about 303 (and others) is that it traps the residue that normally evoporates and coats the inside of your windshield (that nasty film that makes it hard to see at night).

I don't know if it will help but I took some closeups after I 303'd my interior once: http://www.thewebworks.com/nuke/mod...lery&file=index&include=view_album.php&page=2

Let me throw a wrinkle into the Lexol / 303 debate... use leatherique products instead. They are the best available, and endorsed by Rolls, Jaguar and other restoration clubs. They have cleaners and conditioners that will make the leather soft as can be. I have a 2002 and i tried the conditioner and you can feel the difference. The 'new' leather feels like carboard to the touch compared to the center console arm rest that i rubbed in the conditioner. Leatherique - btw, George, the owner is very helpful too
