1978 240D Question

Hi all-

My parents just bought a 1978 240D and I was commissioned to clean it. (a daunting task: 25 years of dirt and grime) It has the leather and vinyl interior with the perforated leather seats. I'm wondering what kind of cleaner/restorative I should use. All it says in the book is warm water and soap, wipe dry. I tried that and it didn't help much. The vinyl cleaned up like a dream I just used the Mr. Clean Magic Eraser, not any detergent or anything. The leather is a different matter and I'd like to restore it a bit too.(is it possible to bring back the leather smell after so long?)

Thanks for any advice/help.

RE: 1978 240D Question

for your leather use products from leatherique.com.
It is the best product for your leather. Just follow
the instructions on their website.
I use it for all my cars with leather interior.
Best regards
