Hola all. The black leather of my driver seat is starting to get the "stretch marks" on the seat and the black color is fading. Is there anything I can do, without replacing the seat, to restore the color of my seat??? I know that applying leather protectant will help it from further deteriorate, but I want it look new. Thanks for any help.

a seat specialist can "repaint" (or "re-dye") the leather to the same color as the passenger side seat so that it should look similar in color and look (probably for about $100 to $150); a good seat specialist will be able to make the seat look "almost" new and not even look "painted" at all
