I love the color! I've just recently started modding my car also. I'm way behind the curve. The cool thing about our rides are the inexpensive things we can do to get big gains!

The steering wheel must have been the most rewarding to get clean. But if you still have probs getting into the leathery grooves, Mr Clean erasers are awesome. Becareful on the raise white lettering though, sometimes it works too good.

Ditch the wipes! Agree...Meguier's and lexol are good. Zaino makes some good leather conditioner too. Hey Ryan, do you have a cardomain site?
