Leather scuff repair.

Recommended Posts



I have a couple of lather scuffs on the e39 - I don't think they are too bad and probably just need touching in with a leather dye?

I have never tried to touch in leather before, so was wondering if someone could recommend a product for this? - there appear to be loads of options on ebay, but unsure what to go for.

I used this on my 1st E39 that had black leather; it had jeans button scratches and the edges had caught in places.


Thoroughly cleaned the leather with a leather cleaning brush, warm water and used laundry soap; dried it off, used the leather dye, let it properly dry and then used a leather conditioner and they looked like new!


Worth trying IMO:

I can thoroughly recommend The Furniture Clinic's products in this case.

They have car specific products & can even offer a colour matching service.

Gliptone Liquid Leather dye kits are ideal for this, their colour matching is spot on. 
Give the areas a light scuff first and clean with IPA
