I've noticed that no matter how carefully you enter and exit the car that the side bolsters on the Aston seat are getting worn. No doubt in a year or so the leather and stitching are going to be so worn it will look like an old shoe.
Apart from getting seat covers made, does anyone have any ingeneous method of protecting the bolsters from wear?? :eek:

Love to know.

Nothing else except regularily using leather conditioner.

Thanks for the response.

No doubt as far as leather conditioners go there is product that is great and product that you wouldn't waste the time of day on.

Any specific recomendations??

Apart from the leather it looks as though the stitching also cops it somewhat.
All things considered I will probably let (wear) it run its course , conditioning along the way, then replace the bolster when it becomes too worn.

I have been using the AutoGlym line of products for years and been very happy with the results.

I must say that I have used the Autoglym range for the paintwork and have been very happy so perhaps I will give the leather care a go as well.

Thanks for the heads up.

I am an employee of Coverking and I have a set of Genuine Leather seat covers in my car, they are wonderful. I never have to worry about my original leather I can beat up on these genuine leather seat covers all day. Our seat covers are cut from specific patterns made directly from your vehicle so you can expect a perfect fit and they install in 30 minutes or less.

At 59 with some extra pounds the problem was two fold, leather and fit. Discussing with an old world leather guy, he suggested sitting in butt first then swing both legs in. As an additional assist, I have a seat position set as far low and back as it will go and I use it on exit, thus entry. Works well and doesn't have you slide down the bolster.

While treating leather, I use Leatherique, don't forget the dash leather under the windshield and also invest in a good quality sun shade. Mine was damaged when I bought it and it was ugly. It dries like parchment in the sun and shrinks off the former making repairs very difficult.

As for seat covers, don't forget you have side impact air bags in the seats and the handbook warns specifically against any covers.

Hope this helps.

Leatherique

Snowy, you are correct that the dash can get ugly when dried out. I have a section over the instrument cluster that has curdled. I have been wanting to treat the dash, but am concerned no matter what I use will change the shade of (my) green leather. I would then have to do the enire car so to prevent a two-tone look. What has been your experience? Thanks.

A good trimmer should be able to get the color matched.

Cygnet

Hey All,



Did anyone see a Cyngnet on real time? on AM web it seems that they made only prototype.


Does anyone knows about the US price for the Cygnet?


and why did they call it Cygnet.... there are better names for such a small car, like DB1.


thanks,
Nir

I had a similar problem in my previous DB9.The dealer had a leather repair specialist who "touched up" the sides. He applies some type of dye and matches the color perfectly. The touch up is not visible and looks like new.
I suggest enjoy the leather seats and get them touched up when necessary.
