OK Thanks, I tried it now with the powder form twice but did not achieve the expected results. It's hard to find in the netherlands but now ordered 3 bottles via ebay. I'll have another go...

Hey neil I'd love to hear from you in terms of durability after two years. This is something I'd love to do (grey --> cinnamon in my case), but the whole point of dying is to save on the cost of buying a real cinnamon interior, so if I'm going to have durability issues down the road it's not worth it for me.

Yes, I diluted it. Don't remember the percentage of water though. Maybe read back through the thread.

Holding up pretty well thus far. Only problem area is where the seatbelt rubs against the seat bolster (at the bottom). It has rubbed the dye off in a quarter sized area. Not a huge deal considering my front seats are vinyl, haha.

That's really good to hear. On my leather seats the seatbelt has done some serious wear to the bolster anyway do that really doesn't seem like unexpected or unreasonable damage.

how did you select 'cinnamon' as a colour. from the website http://www.leatherique.com/oem-color-samples/bmw.html the closest colour i could find to cinnamon was 2404 'cardinal'. im currently in the process of ordering this kit now ans just wanted to double check????

Damn bro, I just went through the whole thread. Great job!

Glad to hear it's holding up well. I hate my tan/beige interior in my Sedan but don't know If I have the patience to swap/dye/paint it.
