    Hi mate,
    Also interested in doing this myself but just waiting until Monday to Speak to BMW and find out my interior colour. Found this item on ebay which looks cheap enough to try and good feedback to. Not to sure on the application of the product but there cant be much more than cleaning and preping the area ?
    Item number: 320607364582

    I'm using the liquid leather stuff, seem good. Get the cleaner, restorer, some methelated spirits and the dye.

    Search my started threads, for leather restored with dynamix

    I'm on my blackberry atm so can't link,

    I used dynamix dye, and filler to fill the cracks and the dye to re dye the leather,

    A small pot cost around £25 and will do a whole seat, the filler can be picked up easily and cheapy on the internet for under £10

    Dynamix do sets but imo they arnt worth the money, all they are is dye filler and cleaner,
    You can use meths to clean then the other bits are cheaper on there own

    All you need to know is your colour, dynamix have all the bmw colours and the match was very good

    What are you intending to do? The whole seat or just the worn parts?
