    I'm sure its not even real leather. It happened to another guy a few years ago, when he took it to the trimmers he was told that it wasn't real leather, just imitation. Couldn't tell you if they were half leather or heated though.

    a lot of the smart repair companies will tackle something like this for around £50-75 they basically make up a "match" by taking shavings from a overlap of the original material (say from under the seat) and mixing it with a repairing agent then apply it like "filler" - buff it up and jobs done

    Yea, seen that done on fabric seats before, the finish was spot on.
