Hi
If you want to discuss leather care including cleaning, repair or renovation then suggest you speak to Chris or Maggie
07813 678 645
Based in Nottinghamshire but certainly very knowledgeable on all aspects so worth a chat IMO

They will be at Gaydon this August if you want to meet / discuss and let them see your car interior etc

I have no involvement or financial interest in their company just willing to share my experience having discussed my leather interior and just having Leather Chesterfield repaired & cleaned :-)

That's what I'm talking about!

Brand new(-ish) interiors, specially new black nappa leather, isn't actually black. When it's wears, it becomes shiney and black, but factory fresh(-ish) it's actually matt anthracite, like this: (this is from a 16k mile car)

Except it's boring as hell with everything being black. Some (wood)trim or even just chrome unlockhandles would break it up.
