Question best products to keep up Coral leather

Hi All - Looking for help.. I want to keep my coral leather looking new! I have been reading post about.. jeans dyed seats, dirty, etc.. Mine is none of the above.. they are still in almost new condition. I would like to keep them that way. What products work best to stay ahead of the dirt, dye, etc. on the coral interior? On that note, I dont want the shinny, oily, greasy "clean" but the new car clean. I understand the 3 steps/4 steps in cleaning the leather but not sure of what products. Please help!

Anyone have experience with any of the items blew that I have been looking in to?

A buddy of mine has an E46 M3 that still has immaculate cinnamon leather. Non greasy/shiny, just perfect. He uses the Leather Master stuff mostly (what he also uses on saddles). I fully plan to follow his lead.

My friend also had en E46 M3 with the cinnamon leather, and he said he just used the BMW leather care kit and it looked like new for the three years he had it.

I just used Lexol leather cleaner on my parents 2008 1er with beige leather. Came out brand new then followed with Lexol leather condition. No grease like a teenagers face but soft/dry/ and healthy like Miranda Kerr's ass

There was an old thread a year or two ago by someone who used a Swiss-Oil product for coral red seats. It really made the seats look good.

I have coral red and have been using Ultima Interior Guard Plus for a little over a year. I also like the fact that I can use just one product for the interior.
