Turtle wax makes a nice leather cleaner/conditioner all in one! It has worked beautifully for me!! Prevents those horrible looking creases and cracks!

The same as what 06GT4RAD uses. They smell good and are real easy to use, and they really make the colors vibrant in my Mystichrome leather!

Yeah, those Meguiar's wipes work well on the dark charcoal vinyl on the seat backs and sides too! I'm always amazed at how much dirt and crud they take off the leather wrapped steering wheel. Haha, you'd think I was a greasy mechanic or something!

I usethe Meguires wipes, but spray Lexol on them before I use them,
to give them a little boost,
Then I take them after I'm done and wipe under the hood.

I use Mother's Leather Cleaner and Mother's Leather Conditioner. I didn't think my seats were dirty, but the cleaner picked up a lot of dust and crap, and the conditioner made it all very dark and rich looking.

I've got some Meguiar's Leather Wipes (which the bottle says clean and condition at once) and they do an okay job, and they're faster because it's just one step, but they seemed to leave things kind of oily, and the shiny rich look came off as soon as anything touched them (like clothing, for example). So while the seats looked great right after they were done, as soon as I sat in my car to go somewhere the next morning the effect was pretty much gone.

The Mother's Leather Conditioner, on the other hand, kept the seats looking good for probably about 2 weeks or so until the deep rich look wore off.

If you want the best overall look and last of the finish, I would definitely use some crap in bottles (liquid, foam, or whatever) as opposed to the wipes. The bottled products take a little longer because there's more than one step to it, and you'll need some clean terry cloths or whatever, but in my opinion they do a better and longer lasting job than the wipes.
