i used leatherique products, they have products that restore the leather and conditions them back to new. The products are a little expensive than your normal off the shelf stuff but well worth every cent. Check it out at this web site and judge for yourself....... www.ppc.au.com

Hey thanks for the website, i think this will be the way i go i've read some other good things about leatherique aswell.

Roughly how much did you use (what size bottle?) on the interior of your car and what model was it?

I used on my EA which keep in mind has cloth inserts on front and rear seats
1 x 500ml Rejuvinator Oil $45.
1 x 250ml Prestine Clean $20.00
These two should be used first to get the leather pore open and clean.

Then i wanted to bring the colour back to new so i used
1 x 250ml Prepping agent $25.
And the dye cost me $110 for 500 ml which is probably a little too much but better to have too much than too little, as to try and mix another batch and get it exact is very difficult.

I also had a few little cracks so i used their crack filler it’s $22.00 for 90ml.

Post and packaging to Melbourne was about $12.00 for the lot.

But not too much to often as it apparently can soften the leather up a bit especially in warmer weather. If its badly cracked dont use it as it could make it worse.
