Dear me, looks very dry does that.

I'd get friendly with some good products, Autoglym etc and see how it does.

I don't really think it matters what you rub into it as the door card cappings are vinyl ... once they're cracked .. it's game over.

Yes but, they'd come up better with some jollup on..

Also the seats, just the face is leather, the rest is faux.

AutoGlym and Meguiars from the USA and now Jollop from Gloucestershire.
I know what you mean Alz .. but it's easier to Jollup up the black rather than the cream ... anyway, Mark will probably rub cheese into them.

Going back the start of this, that's pretty cracked & worn. No amount of cream will bring that back.

Rub some of that cheese you put in the oven on it, jollup jubbly.

Forget which specidicaly but the last time I ate it I spent 24h with one end on the crapper and the other in the sink, bad times :(

Take a look at this company
http://www.liquidleather.com/vinyl-recolouring.htm

They also do recolouring kits for leather , heres some pictures of black seats i re-coloured from a Jenson Intercepter last year




You can also do this to cream leather and vinyl. The cleaner and seperate conditioner are very good if you have seats already in good nik
