I just bought a 99 estoril blue M3 with dove vaders and they look like shit. I want to try cleaning them really well first before i try the crack filler/dye option. What do you guys recomend using?

Try these before you end up getting leatherique. It really helps to clean out your leather.

If they still look like shit, take the dive and get leatherique.

Give them a good steam cleaning, it will clean all the dirt up as well as clean out all the pours in the leather leaving them nice and soft.

leatherique is your best option.

whether you want to repair them or just clean them. they have the best products.

im currently restoring some worn vaders i picked up for $300. i bought them with the intention to have them reupholstered in black (theyre dove grey) but i figured id give leatherique a try. and its worth every penny.

they look damn near brand new. and some parts of the leather, was so worn that it was brown and had a suede texture. i would def recommend them.

ill post pics when i get home....you WILL be shocked with my results

Eagle leather cleaner and a toothbrush. I wish I had taken a pic of my dove grey seat when I had only half cleaned.

Is leatherique better than this?
