My beautiful interior!

..is getting raped by the sun due to random parking under the sun everyday when I go to the university.







It's not all the sun, but it's showing its 5 years of age. I know it's pretty common but we have a z4 that's just as old and it's in perfect condition with tight leather and no cracks whatsoever.

I'm considering either replacing just the front two seats(just the bottom if possible) since the backseats are in perfect condition due to no use or finding some magical product that would help me.

I'm going to get it detailed soon but I don't think it's gonna help with the leather fading out or cracking. Your expert help would be much appreciated to a college student on a limited budget.

Anything more renown that I can buy from my country? Price of a kit + shipping + time would be too much of a hassle or close to the price of getting my interior detailed with similar products.

Sunscreen/windshield sunblockers...
eBay has them; I would think they would
be a common item for sale in Kuwait.

I already have V-Kool on the windows, but I can't help but notice the previous owner's marks on the car.

I highly recommend V-Kool by the way.

most detailers dont use anything near the quality of this kit.

You own a 4.6 but you cant spend $60 bucks to clean and condition the leather?

LOL! That sure made me feel like an ass. Touché..

I just hate ordering stuff online so I'd prefer something I'd find locally. :$

my bad, its just if you really want it to look and feel good, this kit works.
I used it on 4 different cars and it honestly makes the leather like new.

The cleaning process is not hard, just takes a little elbow work.

Get
16 OZ OF REJUVINATOR OIL & 16 OZ OF PRESTINE CLEAN.
$40 plus shipping.

Did you take any pictures?

Here's a picture from a detailing place here, the dark square is the "before" colour.

Krunk is right on.
I have used Leatherique. The x was in good shape but it made a difference.

My Ford was in BAD shape. cleaned it with everthing, soap and water, saddle soap, Meguiars, Tannery etc... and it just stayed crappy looking.

Did what Leatherique recommends, spray bottle, rub it in with gloves (no rag) then roll the windows up, leave in the sun for a full day, wipe 'er down with the Cleaner. The crap it forced out AFTER all those other products was amazing. I deleted the pics, they were gross. Car smells so much better. (has 100k and I haul around my dog)

They have appropriate dyes as well.
