Any tips for restoring black leather seat scuffs?

My front seats have the usual bolster wear, not damaged, just rubbing the colour off, it also has a few scratch type marks that have taken the colour out a little. is there any tips or tricks for replenishing the colour!???

I would try to use Leatherique - you can find it at our sponsor's website, www.detailedimage.com

Get rejuvenator oil and prestine clean - these will condition and clean your leather. If that doesn't work you can always dye it.

Believe it or not, Black shoe polish works pretty well. (assuming your interior is black)

I've heard if you don't put the lotion on you get the hose.

what? Well, I assume it will cover bad spot, but I wouldn't lay my arm on the arm rest after using shoe polish on it
