My 2017 S3's Grey Nappa Leather is in great condition and I would like to keep it that way, is there a product which can be applied to 'feed the leather' without making it all shiny and sticky. I have used Connolly hide treatment on previous cars which I feel is for a more traditional leather and needs a few weeks of warm to be fully absorbed into the leather before really looking great.

What would you guys recommend?

Quite a debate as it's 'sealed' with a clear lacquer !

Use the cheapest .

Colourlock is great stuff l have use many leather cleaners over the years from even swissvax but l always go back to valet pro leather soap, great stuff and great value for money....also a worth while product is colourlock leather shield its a anti friction fluid that keeps the leather/pva coating from wearing down....buy yourself a leather cleaning brush as well

I can see why there would be a debate on this, if the leather is treated with a lacquer where would any of these products go ?? except sit on the surface and go on to your clothes when you get in and out. maybe look shiny and that's not what I want

Color lok gives the leather a fresh matte oem look. Makes seats incredibly easy to keep clean to.

Go on their website. They make one that is suitable for newer leather seats. The have a time frame chart for which product that best suits your age of seats

A reply!!!


Hello,

We have replied to your question about Leather Shield, 150 ml:

Hi,I have just bought a 3 year old Audi S3 with smooth grey satin Nappa leather seats, and they are in great condition I would like to treat them with something to help protect them for the future. I do not want the seats to become shiny or sticky, just maintain the elegant surface. Can your Colour lock leather shield do this?


Here is our answer:


Hi,The Leather Shield will protect the dye transfer stains when the leather is newer than 3 years.I would recommend the Leather Protector in your case, and you can also use it in the future. Make sure you apply thin layers.Regards,The Colourlock Team.


ORDER PLACED!!!!

So, they say be careful what you wish for ! £40 later I have cleaned and treated the leather with the Colourlock cleaner and protector and my seats look EXACTLY the same as they did before!!!!! I just hope now that they are protected for the future and stay looking brand new.
Only time will tell - you never know.

Colour lock will bring the seats back to a nice oem matte finish. They look great to me mate. Also any fluid that hits them beads up and is much easier to wipe off leaving no remnants

They look as new to my eyes in that photo.....dirty leather is shiny leather and if you didnt know this....you do now the full rear bench is faux leather on a S3/A3....Only genuine leather is on the front seats and even they have faux leather around the S logo and down the sides

There is a difference between the front and rear seats you can feel it in the texture plus the rear bench does'nt crease, it's the same no matter what seat type you have in the car
