Fixing Leather and stitching

I have two annoying issues with my 12 month old Mini....leather separating from the gear shift [it's an auto so gets minimal contact - really annoying] and a loose thread on the seat stitching.

I've tried to fix both issues but have failed, any suggestions [other than shouting at Mini]?

Thanks

As it's 12 months old, I really would see Mini as my first point of call, assuming that you haven't already. Plead your case that it is a well looked after car, again assuming it is. Aside from that you'd be looking for a smart repairer of some description. There must be lots around who could tackle that sort of thing.

Back to Mini for sure on those.

How many miles has the car covered?

If it’s only twelve months old then I would definitely be calling into the local mini dealership for them to repair it.

I would have thought at 12 months old you’d be going back to the dealer as 1st port of call and not touching yourself.

My local BMW (and Mini) dealership have excellent customer service, so I’d hope they’d be able to resolve they problem.

The gearshift issue - difficult to see on phone at present, but it’s not been caused by a ring on finger has it ???
