Maybe should have gone brown leather 🤨

congrats on the new car, looking forward to the pics
good to hear the dealer wash was ok

interesting to hear about the ivory white leather already, as I wanted to order than on my next car but the mrs said it will be too hard to maintain so we went with cognac instead, I better not show her this post lol

Get some Dr Leather dye block on those seats I have light white ones on the merc and the dye block has worked great so easy to do and re do every 6 to 9 months, must get dye out first. Use Dr leather liquid with leather brush and plush warm damp MF cloth agitate and mop up residue with the damp MF that should do the trick

The Sophisto grey looks awesome after the power seal 😎

Yeh it looks good when shiny. When dull its very boring indeed. I donít think beemer have great colours for the 5. 19 shades of black. Although their med blue is nice just didnít fancy it when it came down to it.

Would have liked white with stealth look black accents but i got that look from the other wife so that was a no.

Powerseal really easy to apply. We will see how she lasts i will report back.

Very good point but it just lifts the ambiance of the cabins, I had lemon leather on my e90 and was worried but it kept well, then on my next beemer is was red or black only, I went black leather and was never happy with it missed the light lemon leather.
In the merc I have black sides with platinum white centres again love the lighter look
With good protector and good maintenance no problems at all wil be had
