    Hi guys, I have a 318ci Sport Coupe (2004) I have black leather interior, the front seat leather has become hard and has lost its matt finish. What would you guys recommend I use?

    It has 60,000 on the clock, didnt expect this yet...
    Any comments welcome

    Two questions:
    1. From the pictures it looks like its given a shiney finish, can I not get a matt leather finish? As my rear seats look new because nobody has hardly sat on them...

    2. Is there anything I can get off the shelf like from Hellfrauds or anything?

    I would recommend BMW Leather Lotion, very good stuff! You can buy it off eBay or any BMW dealership!
