    I haven't treated the leather/alcantara seats in my 2012 Ibis White A4 Allroad since I bought it 4 years ago. Interior is mint, this is 60k mile car, vacuumed weekly. Only thing the seats have had is a wipe over with a damp cloth. Looks like they could use a feed.

    Looking for recommendations for a suitable leather nourishing treatment please. I plan to leave the alcantara main seat areas and back rests, as material is clean with no marks.

    I normally buy Poor Boys products, but I'm not loyal to that brand. I want a decent leather smell, not perfumed, which will leave the leather nourished and wipe off with matt/mid sheen, price wise £15-20 tops.

    What are you using?

    I use color loc for my car seats and steering wheel. Gives everything a fresh matt oem look.
    Fantastic product, easy to use and is made by a company that specialises in this area only. They also do products for alcantara and home furniture.

    Autoglym leather cleaner & balm work great on my Audi leather.

    Sorry for the delay, appreciate your views on this. These Colourlock guys obviously know a thing or two. I was only looking to dress the leather, 2 hours later I'm watching videos of repairing and recolouring leather as if I had an E type Jag that needed a full interior restoration. Interesting stuff.

    I would still clean the leather with a dedicated soap and textile brush before protecting.

    Colourlock stuff arrived today. You don't get much for £20 with shipping added. 150ml cream will be using sparingly. Wiped over the seats first, then applied the treatment. Gives them a fresh look. Will post pictures later on the Allroad and i3.

    Hey, just wanted to bump this as my A4 needs a deep clean for the leather seats.

    Bought it at 41k and suspect the leather for the driver seat anyway has never seen a cleaning in its lifetime.

    Have done some research and there are 3 brands people swear by, any further opinions/pics if possible of before/afters
    1. Autoglym Leather Cleaner and Balm
    2. Dodojuice supernatural leather cleaner and sealant
    3. Dr Leather wipes
