I found this, posted in 2012 in a BMW owners' forum. Whether it is accurate and whether it has anything to do with your situation, I don't know "The common Lexol cleaners and conditioners (brown and orange bottles) are not meant for the leather found in modern BMWs, or most other manufacturers for that matter.
