Autoglym Leather Care Balm and Gliptone Conditioner are my preference.

You shouldn't need to condition the leather in your Scirocco, as it's sealed with a clear lacquer (like almost all modern automotive leather).

You just need a mild leather cleaner and/or water.

Don't forget that clean leather should look matte, not shiny. If you use a product that leaves the leather shiny, it's the wrong product.

Second for Gliptone for me, I use both their cleaner and conditioner. Conditioner leaves a nice matte finish.
