    Leather seat refurbishment

    Hi

    I've been lucky enough to acquire some e46 blackberry option leather sports seats for my e46. The front seats have the usual split stitching, so ive removed the cover from the seat and will be getting them re stitched.

    The only other issue is that the front seats are a little worn on the bolsters so could do with a refurb.

    Are there any leather reconditioning companys that people on here use or have heard good things about? Preferably mobile and midlands based?

    Any help would be greatly appreciated.
    Thanks

    Gliptone used to do a kit so you can DIY, don't know if they still do but it involves sending them a sample so they can colour match it, but if you've got the cover off already then you could probably find a little piece to cut off that won't ruin the seat.

    I'd much rather let a pro do it tbh. I've dyed seats before but I just want these back to as factory fresh as I can get them, and only someone with experience will be able to do them justice.

    did you fix it? I think it is better to take it to a car repair shop to have a pro to get it replaced.
