    You tried the ChipsAway type people to see if they can repair?

    I'm quite suprised at the prices they charge for full replacerment interiors on this site and some on ebay. They seem very cheap. Have you looked into buying the seat from a scrapped car etc?? Might cost a little more than a repair though.

    Have you tried rubbing a Leather conditioner. Like Gliptone into the scratchs. It might hide some of the damage and will "feed" the Leather anyway. I think something like Gliptone will do the seats the world of good and hide some of the damage. Posibly a shoe polish that is the same colour as the seat if you can get some that is.

    Thing is i don't want them to get any worse

    I have Megs leather cleaner/conditioner do you reckon i just keep applying that every couple of days to make it more supple and less prone to my fat arse rubbing it or should i use the Megs on my arse ?
