Hey all,

Just working out what the best products are to treat / protect the RCZ dash.

Does anyone know if it is actually leather, or a synthetic fabric? Does it need to be nourished like leather, or best to just out a protectant on it (like Aerospace 303).

Thanks in advance for your advice.

Ben

Hi I believe the way to tell what's leather and what's Faux leather is that the genuine leather has dark stitching where the Faux has light stitching, not sure how this works on the car with red stitching though? :eusa-think: I think that all the dash trim is faux but maybe someone could prove me wrong.

That is correct. All models come with faux leather dash covering, which has the lighter stitching. It was possible to specify real leather, and this was an option. The real leather does come with darker stitching.

Oh ok, thanks mate. I'll check tomorrow, but pretty sure it has light stitching on the dash.

Do not apply any leather conditioner on it. The best treatment is some proper interior cleaner with UVB screen. Something like the Meguiars Quick Interior Cleaner. It works just perfect on this surface

I used Leather cleaner and protector on the faux dash in all of my Zs. It protected it perfectly.
