Sounds like a good program. I might add using the Spray Wax you're going to use on the rims on the paint weekly after washing.

I don't think you need to clean and condition the leather seats monthly - that's way too often to clean them. Generally once every 3-4 months for cleaning is fine, unless you're getting the seats really dirty all the time.

I'd condition every 2 months in summer, 3-4 months in winter when it's not so hot.
