    Hopefully some of you guys might be able to steer me in the right direction.

    I have a set of cream leather seats for A4 B5 1.9 quattro TDi
    The problem is that they are cream! Id like to have them in black.

    Does anyone know if it is a hard job / is it even possible to change the colour on leather seats and door cards?
    Has anyone tried this before? Any ideas of cost?

    know there are some dye's available but i wonder how good are they at adhering.
    Any help would be appreciated.

    Thanks

    A mate of mine used this stuff Leather Colourant Kit You have to sand the leather down first. A fair bit of work but good results

    I would swap them for some black leather over trying to die them a different colour.

    Like NN said, its good stuff but you'd have to sand and dye every inch of the seats and door cards.
    Allot of work when you can try and do a straight swap.

    Thanks for all the help guys.
    I think ill b swapping them somehow.
    I thought it would have been a matter of just applying the dye.
    After a bit of looking into things a bit deeper it appears that the new leathers now come laquered.
