    Default Quality of leather seats....

    Members don't see this ad
    Has anyone noticed a lack in quality of the leather seats? Particularly the most often used seat - your drivers seat... hehe go figure.

    Mine seems to be losing color, and has small strings coming from the perforated holes in it towards the front of the bottom half... if this makes sense....?

    The passenger seat also looks rather worn, however, not as bad, it's not used as often. And the rear seats look brand new.

    Thoughts?

    (I can probably post a picture of the 2 seats, if someone wishes)

    What color?
    My black leather seats have no issues. If you wear jeans a lot I've heard it can lead to color transfer on tan leather seats. Someone else had the fibers poking through the perforations and had their seat bottom replaced.

    Which model are you referring to? The V-6 or the upgraded leather in the V-8?
    Thanks

    Yes, please post pics. Also, do wear denim often?

    I find the leather to be of excellent quality. Take care of it and it will take care of you. Conditioning is essential.

    While I have the 'ultra' leather in the v-8 i first noticed the "perforated threads' after wearing jeans. ( i posted about this in March)

    I found if I wear slacks there is no issue, the threads are being "grabbed" by the courser material and pulled up when you slide out. If I run my hand over the seat the threads return to the holes.

    I haven't had any issues with wear or color of the seat material .

    Sorry for the delay.. I just woke up..

    I never wear jeans. I'm a 24/7/365 cargo shorts kinda guy. And they're usually tan, or medium brown color. (I'm almost anal retentive about that). No blue, no red.. contrary to what Andrew Zimmern thinks, blue and red "shorts" went out in the 80s.

    I will post some pictures within the next hour... a little wet at the moment.

    I also condition the leather seats once every 60 days ~ish. Well, not the rear seats, cause they're never used, that's a waste, imo.

    I still have my Lexol from when I owned by Volvo... What a pain to apply because you have to have a rag/towel for application of the cleaner, then one wipe off the cleaner, then one to wipe on the conditioner, and then one to clean off the conditioner. I go through microfiber towels like crazy in my garage.

    I really miss my S60s seats... so comfortable.
