The mid-Atlantic had a little heatwave so I decided to condition the seats in my Cayenne. I recently had a new top and cover installed on my spyder and the place said I needed to condition the cover to prevent it from shrinking several times a year. They recommended Lexol or Meguiares conditioners. So I bought some Lexol and applied it to the cover and let it sit for a couple days. The photo shows lower portion where applied, before wiping off with a damp microfiber towel. I have been using Leatherique as my "leather system" for several years on all my vehicles. I also have a post showing the results. I have not tried the Lexol before and thought this would be an interesting experiment. Image Unavailable, Please Login I decided to do a comparison between the Leatherique and Lexol on my cayenne seats and headrests. Image Unavailable, Please Login Before. I will say, that I am sure the facing material is different than the material on the sides of the headrests. Probably manufacturers trying to save money. So I did not treat the sides. Image Unavailable, Please Login Step-1 apply with a brush. There are many discussions about leather on the internet! Some suggest that leather in cars might have a plastic layer that prevents penetration, etc. I can say that on several vehicles I notice the Leatherique Rejuvenator oil gets fisheyes when applied. In other words, it does not completely wet the surface. The Lexol did not.

Image Unavailable, Please Login Results - #1 I can discern no difference whatsoever in the suppleness of the leather between the Leatherique Rejuvinatior oil and the Lexol conditioner or before and after application. #2 I am unable to determine if any product was absorbed by the leather or it made any difference. I don't know if there is anything special about Leatherique Pristine Clean or if it is just a strong detergent like 409, Awesome, etc. But the real magic of the Leatheriq "system" is the cleaning action of Pristine Clean! You can get dirty grungy leather and the stitching looking virtually new. After cleaning my seats, armrest and wringing out the towel this is what the water looked like! I don't think the headrests were dirty but were easy to show the process I used. I will follow up with a before/after of the armrest. It looks nearly new. I have noticed that the leather looks significantly better several days after cleaning with the Pristine Clean. Without question the leather is cleaner! How much of the discoloration of the water is grime and how much is from the products, I can not say. The seats and armrest are significantly cleaner. Suppleness, I can not discern a difference between the two products or before/after with either. Image Unavailable, Please Login I will probably continue to use both. Maybe alternate between the two. I did not get the "miracle" improvement that so many products claim. I am tempted to try Griot's Leather Rejuvenator.
