Default seat scuffs

I bought a 2007 this year and the balck leather drivers side had a gray scuff in the seat due to previous owners rear end rubbing the leather when he got in. Dealer had it fixed, but it did not last. I found this to work even better. Got Esquire black shoe dye and rubbed this into the leather to take away the gray discoloration, then followed up with Esquire black shoe polish to smooth surface and add gloss and lubrication. Looks great can't see the scuff any more. This tip came from internet leather repair site.

That's fine if you always wear black clothes. However, shoe polish will come off as you rub your butt across it and no one will want black stains on their tan khaki pants.

I would just replace or live with it and apply heavy leather conditioner on it to darken the light colored scuffs to match the leather.

Never got scuffs on the seats, but I did almost sit in my Vette with a screw driver in my back pocket.
