Hi All. I'm considering the purchase of an E39 M5 with a pretty rough caramel interior. It appears the previous owner knew nothing about protecting a leather interior. The entire surface of all the seats looks extremely dry and is beginning to crack. I'm considering the purchase of this vehicle, but would like to find a reputable shop in the Orlando (Central) Florida area. One that might be able to replace/repair the interior.

Also, anyone have a reputable indy shop for mechanical issues?

Caramel is a rough color to keep nice. You might have better luck purchasing good condition used seats.

Leatherique is a product you could look into, but without seeing Pics, it would be hard to tell. These are leather, but is highly processed.

good luck

Next option would be to restore it yourself. Will take alot of time but materials are inexpensive and you can have show quality results.

Cross my fingers for your getting it sorted to your standards. I just dropped off my M5 seats and touring seats to start that transition. Needless to say, I felt uneasy about leaving them. I need to learn leather working...yeah, that probably won't happen. :D
