I'd like to waterproof / protect my new SLK's leather seats. Any recommendations of what to use on them?

I personally like Lexol.
Review on conditioner on amaz says it smells awful. Could be because they didn't clean their leather first and this stuff released "stuff" they had become accustomed to? Doesn't say.

Comment from you?

Maguiers leather cleaner / conditioner gives very good results.
I have used the same and it works well without any nasty odours, best to clean the leather first with plain soap and water, just use a slightly damp sponge, wait until dry and then use leather treatment. Much easier and better results if the sun is not there otherwise it dries out before it has time to work.

Lexol properly used smells like new car. I use it on leather jackets as well. I’ve put it on my $5000 leather home theater seats. It is important that you follow the instructions exactly though.

Nothing - seats have a protective coating and certainly the newer cars (convertibles) have an anti UV protective coating. Wipe them down with a damp cloth.

$5000 leather theatre seats, do we have more money than sense or are we just a masochist like sarge?

I don’t expect to live much longer, I have nothing else to spend it on.
