    Just curious. I recently used it with very satisfying results. I first heard about it on the E30 forums, while trying to find a way to lightly rejuvenate my worn, 17 year-old seats.

    About a month ago, I made this thread on my home forum:
    It's been a month, and I am happy to report that the seats still look the same as the above "After" pics, and there has been no discoloration of clothing, etc after the application. I was very thorough with revisiting the seats with a clean microfiber to make sure that all of the residual product was removed, and I honestly couldn't be more satisfied with the result.

    I think that the seats will bear at least one more application, perhaps more if I feel they need it, and then I will move on to the rear bench.

    Thanks for checking out the thread.

    Looks pretty good.

    I've been using Leather Master's Leather Vital, quite pricey (even the "good" price from my distributor is $40 a quart), what does this stuff cost?

    $24.99 plus shipping for an 8.8 oz bottle and applicator. One caveat - It ships from Canada, and it took long enough for me to forget that I had even ordered it, then remember and almost contact them to ask where the fuck it was, and then forget again only to find it on my doorstep a week later. :rofl:

    I checked out the Leather Vital. Nice. It seems more of an all-leather product, as the Leather Black can only be used with black leather due to the dye.

    Right - 100%. Sorry if I was unclear on that! It is most definitely a dye.
