What to condition BMW dash with?

Hello everyone!

Being new to BMW's and having a 2013 F31, I was wondering if I could get some tips regarding conditioning the dashboard.

It looks like leather, but I'm sure its plastic of some sort. I don't want to condition it with the wrong stuff so any guidance is appreciated!

If you enter the last 7 digits of the VIN here, you'll get the full build spec of your car from new, that might tell you the trim level e.g. vinyl or leather dash

Bmw sells its own Interior Cleaner. However, I use Poorboys Natural look dressing. It's not glossy at all, just leaves a nice, original finish.

Poorboys Natural Look dressing is a long standing favourite interior dressing of mine. Not need anything to better it, to be honest

I have used Autofiness spritz https://shop.autofinesse.co.uk/products/interior with both my X1 and my F11 and couldn't be happier it gives a factory finish and smells divine

I have used Adams Quick Interior Detailer. Good product. Cleans well and leaves a nice finish.

Punched my numbers in there and only info that was semi-relevant was the fact that it states leather sports steering wheel. Gonna make a wild guess that the rest is vinyl?
