Any particular products/methods recommended for cleaning seats & interior?

Specifically for me I have the "Amido Perforated Leather", but it might be good to collect some recommendations across the different seat materials.. as well as the cloth door material.

I hit the beach a lot so we get sunscreen that rubs off on the seat, etc

Sunscreen + Leather = Bad. Really bad. But as far as leather care, BMW's own leather care products have always been very good, along with traditional Zaino and Sonax (my preference) products. As far as cloth, Woolite has been the old standby, and for plastic (Sensatec/Sensafin) I prefer 303 over anything else. Ceramic coating is probably the best leather protection starting with a new car.

@SteveBK123 I concur with @Paladin1 Get your car's interior protected. It will make cleaning it much easier.

And speaking of cleaning, anyone notice that you can turn off the main screen? Sure you have. What you might not have noticed is, that if you then wipe the screen (as in cleaning it to remove fingerprints), it turns back on again! What a clever feature BMW! Completely negating the advantage of turning if off, making each swipe do something new and exciting to the controls!

I have noticed this…A pain in the ass. What i do now is click on the car widget and then clean the screen. It seems that that widget is not a prone to messing up the display settings when cleaning the screen.
You can actually just press the volume knob briefly when the car's off and it will blank both screens, but the takeaway is what's the point of having a "screen off" button (particularly one occupying valuable real estate on the Favorites screen, that you can't delete) when the screen just turns on again if you touch it? Another Teutonic mystery....

You're right,,I had forgotten that! That buys you about 30 seconds to clean with no issues. Yes, I totally agree with you regarding the 'Screen Off" button.
