ok I'm not making fun here... just gathering facts. How long have you owned the car? Front & rear seats are worn out? Just what have you been doing in your car mate?

Jokes aside...instead of buying a new set.. why not take out the rears and passenger...take them to a local leather upholsterer and wrap them in your favourite fabric/colour to have a real custom look? they could put in the same kind of stitching etc if you wanted to and bolster them in the same way. Would have to be really careful with the side airbag if you have it though.

I personally love the deep burgandy red of the VW EOS leather interior. Would kill for it if if had the coin. good luck

when im on my own the seats look normal i didnt notice anything but the wrinkles it has 32 000 kms. they arent that worn out but they look twice the age of my mates golf r and he has double the kms and they look brand new.. more firm, deeper colour, less wrinkles.. and i dno if possible but his leather looks thicker? what does one do to fix this problem? i want it like it just came out the factory

Steam can smooth out the wrinkles.
