Air freshener scratched my leather! Lol

Arg, who would of thought? Taking out my sunshade knocked my air freshener out and it dinged my leather center console (the side not the middle). I already did a vague search to see what needs to be replaced and the part is far too big/expensive/difficult to replace to justify for a small scratch. Just so annoying because I don't see any scratches anywhere else on this piece, not even on my 2007 e92!

So what are some good leather dyes I could go about trying? I think as long as the white of the ding was gone I'd be happy lol

I realize it looks like nothing in the pics but from the drivers seat (the angle it cut at) it just stands right out!

Anything from Leatherique or Leather Master is good stuff. It's so small that I wonder if a fine-tip felt marker would do the job, lol.

If you have some other stuff in the interior that needs touching up, like minor scuffs on the seat or plastic panels, just pay for a professional to come out and fix it all at once.

Id use a Sharpie or some flat black paint on a small brush or tooth pick and dab it in to fill the nick.

Yeah I was actually thinking of having fibre new look at it as I'm considering having them come out and do my side bolster!

Tutto, you just beat my OCD, thanks. That mark, easy fix with some leather paint + coating. You won't be able to tell where it was.

Cheers

Isn't that part of the cars without extended leather just plastic?
