Looks great. If you're interested, there's a guy on bimmerforums (Eric) who does amazing work with new leather or alcantara armrests and shift/ebrake boots. It would completely revitalize your arm rest and cost about as much as leatherique.

It's better to drive a new car with windows down for your health


jus sayin
The "new car smell" is actually the vinyl, not the leather. I used the Prestine Clean on the vader vinyl and it did a fantastic job, but I still prefer Aerospace 303 and used that on the rest.
Josh is correct. The leatherique restores it and softens it and it the resurgence of the Leather odor is much stronger though I am still getting it from the "fairly" new wheel

I don't know about a lot you guys but when I was a baby, my dad had a few E30's and E36's and I remember to this day BMWs had a distinct aromatic smell to them. Something that you don't forget and something that is, well to me, pleasing to my olfactory system.
every one that I've had always smelled like crayons.
