but it does change colors easier: ie transfer of dyes or something. my driver's seat is noticeably darker than all the others, as i am alone 90% of the time.
so be prepared for that.
i had it professionally detailed and it is practically back to normal now, but just keep in mind , that good leather details will be necessary a few times a year to keep it from darkening...
if all your seats were to darken together i suppose it wouldnt look bad, but in my case, the center of the drivers seat was nearing brown, and the rest fox red.
its a great color, cool on space grey too.
it was my number one criteria after m drive.
Sounds like the damp cloth every couple of months and a proper cleaning (Spinneybeck or Leatherique) once a year should do it. Doing this even on black leather, which might appear clean, will bring up all kinds of dirt. Thanks.
