    black magic....this stuff is CRAP

    terrible horrible no-good product what so ever. SHould have figured that when i saw the milky-looking substance in the bottle. It doesn't shine for shit, left my leather streaked and stinks like hell.

    as far as I am concerned the only good thing that black magic makes is their engine cleaner/shine. That stuff works great.

    I agree the meguirs wipes are the best i've come across. All the spay stuff sucks IMO they streak and you get it stuck in the little holes that are in the leather. The wipes are super easy to use and leave the seats looking good.


    Armoral wipes blow the shine the seats up then once the product dries the seats look even worse than before you started.

    Yuck, yeah, I hate that stuff. I tried it once on my buddies Saturn (as if things couldn't get worse). I use Meguiars leather wipes (the ones in the plastic tub) - and I love em! SHINEY and smells good and lasts a long time and I really trust the brand.

    For tire shine, I have taken an extreme liking to Turtle Wax F21 Foaming Tire Spray. Works awesome, very shiney, and DOESN'T fling off once it's dry (which doesn't take long). You can put it on wet after washing, or when they are dry the result is the same. Gone through tons of cans of that stuff on all of my cars since it came out.

    From what I have read that is no longer the case. They changed their formula years ago. I still won't use it on my interior because I can't stand the smell but I will spray it on my wheel wells. Also I don't understand why some of you like shiny leather seats, I like a mate finish on mine, personal preference I suppose.
