159 Tan Leather Colour

Does anyone know what the colour is for the tan leather in a 159 ti and where to get a dye to match to spruce it up a bit??

I used Gliptone from here : Car Leather Cleaner on the 147. I sent them a little sample from inside the map pocket but they send you the basic colour anyway and some tints to alter it. After 7 years I wore the bolster so was just patching that up. There's lots of options on Youtube too.

If that needs sprucing up, my tan leather is about ready for the bin. Tis mint!

I used Auto Glym leather cleaner and feed, together with a soft bristle brush + some cloths, to take out the grubby 100k nastiness in mine. Almost like new afterwards - you'd be surprised at how good most leather is, if it were cleaned.

My natural (tan) leather's hardly been touched in 4 years and still looks absolutely pristine!

Sorry, that's not my actual interior, it's just a pic off the web to show the colour of it. No tears or rips or anything, just looks a bit faded/discoloured
