Well my car is in pretty good condition it has issues like most 13 year old cars do. So heres the problems...My leather is pretty dried out. Now the front had tears in the front seat. I bought some seat pads that actually look nice to solve that for now but I want to save the back. The back seats have no tears but what do you guys use to restore the leather. I used maguiers spray on and figure maybe if I do it every day for a while maybe they will purk back up. Any suggestions? Better products maybe?

The other is the paint..again it's in decent condition. Theirs some marks on the roof from the ski rack that used to be on it and also where it used to have a wind deflector. I'll eventualy get another wind deflector to take care of that but my question is both rear quarter panals have some serious swirl marks! Whoever waxed the car was an idiot to say the least. Anyway is rubing compound and a buffer the best chance I have of getting this out. I would like to save myself a paint job for now.
