Dash Cleaner/Conditioner

Greetings all, Just got a new 240ix vert a couple weeks ago. Love the car. I tried searching and came up empty. Looking for product to clean/condition the rubbery/soft plastic? dashboard, top of door card.
Thank you!

Welcome to the forum! There are many products for this, but the Sonax Cockpit Spray was previous rebranded & sold by BMW. Apparently they've added a variety of scents to it now.
https://www.sonax.com.eg/Products/Interior-and-Glass

Available through online detailing vendors (& Amazon, I'd imagine). Their Full Effect wheel cleaner & Rubber Protectant are very good products.

I just use warm water and a microfiber towel on the grainy rubbery material.

On other interior trim rubber parts I use Zymol Vinyl

Sonax makes great products, so I will second this. If you're looking for something that is a little more versatile, I'd recommend P&S Xpress Interior Cleaner. That's what I use on my car, and you can use it on plastic, vinyl, and leather. I use something separate for leather, but it's a still great product none the less.

Tried the Sonax (Dashboard Cleaner) last night. Works well. Nice matte finish. Wipe it on, let it dry. The "stitching" in the dash is kind of interesting ;-)

Just a little humor. "Interesting" as in funny they put stitching in a non-leather dash. Struck me as I was cleaning/treating it.

Just used this Griot’s cleaner with damp microfiber cloths. Good stuff. Used it on the entire interior, minus seats, carpets and glass. Did the headliner for the first time in three years and damn, it was nasty.

Not sure I use any chemical to clean the dash and other spots, no matter what, it's gonna leave a residue. Just warm water as noted on a MF cloth. Then use 303 Protectant, done!
