Cleaning Interior

I'm interested to hear how you guys clean the interior of your F30. I'm interested to hear what type of cloth you use, what type of product, on what part of the car. (ie, do you do anything other than dust the dashboard? Or do you use a product on it.) What about leather care? As much detail as possible please! Thanks.

I use 1z Einzsett Cockpit Premium for most of the interior. It maintains that matte original finish.

For the dash, steering wheel, shift knob, e-brake, center console, all door panels/plastics, etc. I use 303 Aerospace Protectant.

Leaves it all brand new looking, feels super fresh/smooth once it 'dries', and keeps your interior protected. (It's meant to protect aircraft interiors from the high UV exposure due to altitude)


For leather seats, I just use any leather wipes really.. Haven't found a favorite product but most the wipes work well, as long as they aren't 'greasy'.


Stoner's Invisible Glass for the windows, inside and out. Works amazing.


I use standard microfiber 10x10 cloths, and keep one under the driver seat for emergencies (read: bird sh%@)

For removing dust from pretty much anywhere in the interior, I find these are hard to beat...

Cheap as chips and one will last you about 3-4 months depending on how dusty your interior gets. Also they're super soft and so won't scratch anything.
