I'm still a fan of the Gliptone stuff

Probably not rated by the detailing fraternity though.

I'm a big fan of Gliptone. It leaves a really natural leather smell and it doesn't leave the leather shiny like some products can.

Why don't you use a local detailer?  I'm surprised you haven't done that on the 6 series.  Leave it all to them, you sit back and enjoy your time...

This is where we learn he meant seats in the anatomical sense - which brings a whole new perspective to "leather treatment" :coffee::P

A valeter comes to the office once a week to do all the cars but every now and then I like to give it a clean myself.

Bought a foam lance to use on the Q5 and it has got me back into the cleaning mood!

Detailer/valeter, exactly the same thing, one just thinks he's better than the other, ultimately, they both clean cars.

My seats could probably do with a leather treatment, I doubt they've ever seen some.

 

Will have to have a look at this Gliptone stuff.

Eh?  There's a collosal difference, as is evidenced by cars that go to a 'valeter' and cars that go to a 'detailer'.

 

Start with the swirl marks and go from there...

Usually a factor of ten on the price. A good detailer is well worth it though, if that's what you want.

It depends what you pay for, I can pay my valeter to do anything a detailer will do, and he's just as good.

The only difference is a detailer tends not to do the cheap weekly wash.
