    Hi all,

    Recently purchased a beautifull 2002 E39 with black leather. There are one or two areas on the seats that have gone a little dull and some areas look like the top layer (if such a thing exists) has worn away.

    Can anyone advise on the best course of action and best treatments.

    Thaks
    Tony

    Well, just finished a very intense clean and condition of the seats and the results are amazing. Forgot to take before and after pictures but take my word for it, if your leather is looking a little tired then give this a go. Wow!

    Thanks ThE gRiZzLe great recommend.

    Interrested in getting this too.

    My front seats are looking tired - the rears are good though. Wondering if i restore the fronts will the rears look old

    Anyway if anyone has used this kit can you post pics ?

    Also - will there be a sticker/stamp somewhere with the colour of leather i have ? It's beige but that list has 5 options of beige !

    AFAIK the kit is ordered to colour match, and should look the same as new, so if the rears dont need doing, a clean and condition should have em looking sweet

    On the colour of your seats front, Im no use sorry bud...
