    Default 458 Colour restorer for Magnolia seats etc ??

    Hi, my 458 magnolia seat side bolsters are looking worn and I have just got some " Leather Forever " colour restorer and I must have put at least 10 coats of it on but there is definitely no colour improvement so a complete waste of time, so has anyone found a good Colour Restorer for this seat colour, Regards DM

    Try the Furniture Clinic's leather repair kits. You have to mix the exact colour from the base kit, which in your case would be cream I think; but once you've got a match it does a decent job IMO. Takes a bit of time adding the right amounts of colour to tint the base but worth putting the time in to get a perfect match

    I've done the bordeaux seats in my 550 and the cream bolsters in our Cooper S and happy with the results

    I used this company on recommendation. They will need a small piece of unfaded leather normally taken from under the seat. They scan it and mix the dye accordingly. I did my whole interior though. Results were good. Worth a look.

    It definitely works - I have a bottle of the stuff which I use to touch up my ridiculous light crema seats so they always look perfect. Not only do they maymtch the colour exactly, they also exactly match the sheen. Really good stuff, highly recommend them.
