    go and check these guys:
    http://www.exoticcarweb.com/CareExterior.asp

    as for Meguires, i don't know what the stuff is made of ...

    i make it a point to not use a product unless they list the ingredients.
    they only say they use Aloe & do not list ingredients, .. i'm pretty sure it is not pure aloe .. they also do not state the use of petrolum or silicone in their creams or lack thereof ... http://www.meguiars.com/product_show...rchResults.cfm

    my leather is now `16 yrs old, a convertible, and leather looks like new .. on Eagle One and Bick4 ..

    on a hard top car, keeping leather soft and nice should be easier?

    i saw this rule somewhere:
    - if it shines like glass for more than a few minutes, it is most likely SILICONE or petrolum...

    - if it gets mostly absorved, it is most likely mink, lanolin or neatfoot oils ...

    i looked at the bottles of meguire's and i could not find the ingredients .. not sure why such a secret .. someone in one of these threads said 1 part maguire/10 parts water? be adviced, water is an enemy of leather in any form, it promotes rot over a long time!

    Eagle One products are found in both auto part stores and general merchandise stores .. they list the ingredients on the bottle.

    the Bick4 stuff is lanolin (on this one i have to take the word of someone that should know ) and i get that at a horse & saddle store. i use the Bick4 at the start of summer and soak the leather well then i finish both leather AND vinyl with the Eagle One conditioner. after soaking well, i wipe the "leftover" to remove the greasy feeling .. btw, i also use this combo on the 1987 4X4 that sits on the street 365 days/yr, or out on the sand dunes in Baja in 110F heat .. to this day, no cracks, all vinyl/leather fine, all factory original. same results on the Lincoln's Recaro leather ...

    like i said, a sun baked california Allanté car with 16 yr old recaro leather and no rips, no damage, no dryness .. did have to re-color as body perspiration takes out the color over time ...

    don't believe there is a scent .. you just get settle into the comfort and so does your passenger .. i don't allow smoking either, so my cars are pretty much scent free .. except for a traces of female perfume now and then ...

    you want scent? try this .. a very small amount of "baby lotion" on the passenger's head rest, after the normal leather conditioning .. girls tend to go a bit romantic with that scent .. dahhh, i wonder why .. and they don't even know why ...

    I just dont want the car to smell like crisco... I have an airfreshener in there now, as I think there is something rancid underneat the seat......
