Help 156 facelift leather questions.

The face lift model (sept 03) has a grain Momo leather finish on the seats, the previous had a smooth finish with little holes in. My seats seem to be wearing quite quickly and have an "old look" even though the car has only done 7500 miles. My previous seats (02 interior face lift model lusso standards and Veloce sports) looked great after many miles. I notice that the GT has the old style leather finish, is that because the seats wear better ? Has anyone else noticed this, how are your seats wearing folks ? Is there any way of restoring the leather ? at present I'm using BMW leather conditioning/cleaning fluid. Is this a bad move ?

Thanks for your comments

I think there have been a few people who have made the same comments as to the newer leather seats.

The old seats don't have the same problem.

Re: 156 facelift leather questions.

the leather seems to be lower in gloss than earlier cars. on mine it is getting dirty quicker than I would have expected after only about 2k miles.

comparing with the GT the leather on those is softer and better quality I feel. i agree with the comments on the autoglym stuff....works well.
