    Hi all,

    Am the proud owner of a new 2012 A4 B8 Black Edition. It's in pretty good condition for an 8 year old car, however, the leather on some seats, where there's been lots of use, is now showing its its age.

    All stitching in place and no cracks have gone all the way through, but feel like if I don't do something now it'll only get worse.

    Example:

    There's a few bits like that in the back too assuming previous owner had a car seat.

    Are there any products you'd recommend which would cure this please?

    They're black S-Line seats with cloth centres.

    Any help appreciated.

    Thanks.

    Check out colourlock, you can get everything from them and get a dye to match.

    Thank you both.

    Seems they're both highly recommended. Will watch a few youtube vids to see what the process is like but sounds like:
    1. Cleaner
    2. Spirit degreaser
    3. Light sand
    4. Degreaser again
    5. Filler if required
    6. Dye
    7. Protector
    Think I'm defo gonna give this a go and will post results once finished as long as I don't royally rollocks it up.
