thank you guys it really turned out nice, but i agree it didnt do as much for the driverside bolster as i was expecting, but it still made it better so i cant complain.

^^
i would say the heater in the bathroom would be fine. i dont think i would bother with a steam shower . maybe putting a big plastic garbage bag over the chair would help too?
i love those chairs, definitely one of my favorite pieces of furniture. i would really like to have one someday. i would like to see some before and afters of the chair!

Unfortunately the before pictures don't do justice to the job leatherique did on it, it was really beat up. I left it in a hot/space heated bathroom for about 6 hours with plenty of rejuvinator. After, it's like a new chair (minus the small tears). Still some minor issues but overall this stuff works wonders, I'm going around my house looking for leather stuff to use it on!

Here are pics:

the driver seat was the worst in the interior
26 hours of sunlight! Where in the hell do you live?

I know how you feel about your seats. I have an 03 with imola red seats and I hate how the bolsters look. I am going to try leatherique though and see what I end up with. Hopefully it turns out as good as yours.

Sadly, they're actually vases. I'm not fun like that (nor was I ever). Too risky given my profession.

I have no idea why I i looked up this DIY. oh wait I know. Leatherique's included directions are so damn uptight and full of pomp and arrogance......

In any event, this is a top product. I'm in love with my reconditioned seats on my E36. Let this stuff bake into my seats in 80deg sun since 7am until 7pm (20mn ago). Just wiped down with Pristine Clean and I am a satisfied customer

Did you massage the conditioner into the leather or did you just apply it on and let it sit?
