    as above ive yellow leather seats and they are nice on the eye, at the moment i feed and clean them with autoglym products, i put a seat cover on for work but the colour means they are starting to show their age, what products could i use to stave off the aging proccess, the drivers seat aint that worn but has faded somewhat, any recomendations

    i used the AG stuff on my baige for a bit, but it wasnt doing much,

    i now use lexol, you can get two bottles cleaner and a conditioner

    i belive i found mine on ebay,

    its very good, the cleaner removes soo much dirt the conditioner makes them look very good, might be worth a go

    i dont know the condition of your leather, but i did post this up a while back that i did
    Leather Seat Repair - Using Dynamix
    very good stuff

    if you was to take the whole seat out and spend a bit of time with the dynamix dyes im sure you would get very good results from it an as new seat

    Hey here is something you could try. Go to Lidl and get some W5 neutral shoe polish. It is a tub of creamy polish with a sponge applicator. You may be skeptical , I was. But try it. It is the most amazing leather product I have ever seen. Being a biker I have used lots of leather products. I used it on some knackered boots that had been soaked for a winter and gone hard and grey. This stuff brought them back to black and supple in 5 minutes. And because it's neutral it works on all colours. I have used it on brown red grey and black leather and it's great on them all. And all for 99 cents. Worth a punt

    Will it come off on your clothes?

    Mr Foreskin have you looked at gliptone? I use the turtle wax (I think, maybe carplan) leather cleaner myself does a perfect job of cleaning cream seats

    The Lidl stuff dries in about 30 mins and then you use a soft cloth to buff it and it doesnt come off on clothes then

    I had the same problem, my drivers seat bolster was faded and worn and had a few scuffs so i bought Grison leather restorer from ebay (hopefully linked).
    It worked a treat and i would recommend it, easy to use as well.

    Garye46 - I tried the LIDL wax-based neutral leather polish on my light yellow Nappa leather interior today. A short while after applying it seemed to become very sticky! Do I just leave it for a while longer and then buff to a dry finish? Thanks for the tip - at 99p a tub you cant go far wrong!!

    Sorry , just saw your last post now. I'm sure you got it sussed by now that you let it dry and then buff it. Hope it worked out ok for ya. It worked a treat on my interior.
