In addition to car parts stores, you'll also find Lexol at most higher-end 
furniture shops--afraid the shop I used to go to (Del Teet, Bellevue) is no 
longer around) but it's a reasonably common product.

I've seen several references on the list to Connolly Hide Food--not sure 
about the leather used in Jags or in Audis--just beware that leather is 
tanned (prepared) using one of two processes (vegetable vs. chrome-salts) 
and the care and feeding of the leather later on differs based on the 
tanning process originally used--use the wrong stuff, and you'll 
drastically shorten the life of your leather.  FWIW, I've been using Lexol 
on my Audi seats since I bought the car 8 yrs ago.
