Hi All,

I just got a 540i E39 with a bit of wear on the leather. I need to know where to find the color code so I can order a fixit kit. It's a sort of mid-grey.

Thanks

Did you look for the build sheet? If present it should be fixed under the back seat somewhere on the foam. A visit/question to a nearby BMW dealer is not a bad idea either

billb...good luck

The BMW guy was able to find it from the Chassis Number. Thanks.

Further to this, does anyone know a method for removing the shine from steering wheel leather?

Thanks again

I suggest trying Lexol leather cleaner (orange bottle i think). It definitely remved both the dirt and the "shine" on the tan leather steering wheel on my wife's Expedition. I've not felt the need to use it on my 540, so I cannot guarantee it will work for you.
