    I use colourlock products. Google for more details. They provide pretty much everything from cleaning to restoration cosmetics.

    I have never had much success with anything marketed as a leather cleaner. I've done full interior-out cleanings to my E36's 4 or 5 times and have tried various products, though none of the expensive/high end(Leatherique, etc) products.
    What I will general use now is Mr. Clean Magic Eraser. That stuff really is magic - it'll take scuffs right out of the leather. Just be sure not too scrub too hard, as you do see the leather's color bleeding onto the sponge. Just try to keep the sponge fairly dry so that water does not pour out of it, and you'll instantly see the dirt come off of the seat. Can't recommend them highly enough.
    I can't speak for the long term effects on leather, though. I collect vintage/otherwise collectible sneakers(Nike, Air Jordan, etc) and have used Magic Erasers for many pairs over the years, with nothing but amazing results. Never had a problem using them on the leather of my 1985 Air Jordans, and I personally wouldn't have a second though about using it on my car's seats.

    Dr Leather wipes, they are brilliant. They say with modern cars there's no need to use anything other than a cleaner.

    There so many good products, but my fave brands are Zaino and Gliptone.
