    I'd suggest you get some. It's not mega expensive and the end result is all down to good preparation. You could use regular leather cleaner but the meths makes the job so much easier.

    Just my £0.02 worth.

    yea as above, get some meths

    the meths evaproates off too leave nothing on the leather, where as a leather cleaner will leave residue on the leather

    Halfords, B&Q, take your pick.

    Make sure you get methylated spirit and not white spirit. It would probably be worth getting some latex gloves too.

    250ml should do it easy although I found that you do need more dye for lighter leather. Not sure where to find though seat colour... do you have any pictures? I got my info from my build sheet but it was also fairly obvious as "light silver grey" on the dynamix site was the only thing that looked that close.

    What do you mean by rip? If you look on the thread I linked earlier you'll see that I had a very worn bolster which I ended up getting re-trimmed.

    Try under the rear bench there is a sticker, if its not there, you can phone your dealer and ask them for the car specs, from your reg

    they will tell you the colour and code

    With out seeing pics of the damage hard to say, filler is pretty good and you can plug up most holes with it

    Word of warning though: use as little as possible as it is a bit of a pain to dye over. I've done a good 3 coats and mine is still showing through.
