(Thread Starter)
The driver seat in my bmw is worn, especially on one side. Does anyone know of a good product to use to fix it or make it look new. It is tan leather. Oh yeah, my friend was smoking one time in my car, will NEVER happen again, and threw the cigarette out of the front window, it came back in throught the back and went into the corner of where the glass meets the car in the back and burned a hole. Any way to fix it, or am i s.o.l.??? thanks.

I can't imagine it'd be that much to replace the rear window weather stripping in a 2-door model. Installation is another story, but that's what the Bentley's manual is for =)

(Bentley's manual is the how-to for taking apart and replacing parts in your car)

Perhaps our sponsor has that part. What year and model is your bimmer?

Welcome aboard, btw =)

Oh yeah, and as for the seat, mine's worn through to the foam, and it's even worn into that quite a bit. I keep getting foam bits around the floor mats from where the seatbelt rubs the seat. Grrr.

This is a common problem for most of the bimmers I've seen. I'm sure some of the peeps here have ideas for maintaining and restoring leather. Mine, however, are completely shot =(

I hear Leatherique does wonders in making old worn leather come back to life

Try woolies. Bimmer magazine raves about it. I think it is www.woolies.co.uk. They use kit #2.
