    Default Treatment of Leather advice

    What is the best thing I can use to treat the Leather in my Elite. Its Tan in colour and I have noticed the drivers seat is starting to look dirty and a little shiney.
    Whatever I use I dont want it to shine the leather but keep it Matt looking like it was when I got the car at 6 months old
    Any advice welcome regarding products to use

    I used to use AG leather cream in my mini cooper. Kept it moist and supple and it did not stain your clothes either

    Thanks guys
    Simon what colour is your leather? and does it keep a dull look
    Neil thanks will have a look and by the way, great car on your Avatar!!

    Takes me back to my MK2 Cav days. I spent thousands on it and only got £280 when I sold it. Digi dash, trip computer the lot.
    Think it snapped in half soon after, were real rotters in the chassis rails.

    i sold mine for scrap in the end. It was my first car when i was 17.The chassis rotted away above the springs . Wheels were about 5mm away from arches.Best car ive ever owned though. 1.6 with Blydentsein 'b' pack head, gas flowed and ported, webber carbs, full spax suspension kit, full janspeed exhaust, piper cam, astra sport alloys, fitted remote central locking myself.
    I was dead chuffed just because it had electric mirrors. lol.
