Question Silverstone console piece, too far gone to repair?

The previous owners apparently forgot to maintain this piece

As opposed to buying new, is it possible to have the existing leather repaired, or maybe buy a new section of Silverstone leather and have it put on? Seems like Silverstone doesn't hold up as well as some of the other colors, or maybe just the earlier versions.

I would start with a good cleaning and conditioning with a quality leather treatment (Griot's Garage, Pinnacle, Chemical Guys or the like). If this is insufficient you can re-dye it.

I have the same problem I was thinking of changing it for a black one I've seen a couple on eBay.

Good cleaning will get most of it but that dark grey area on the edge is gone. After the cleaning it might be good enough to not bother you anymore. The leather gets dried out and does that. I make sure to hit the entire center console when I clean and condition the interior of my car. The constant friction of the elbow doesn't help either.


We have a mobile guy at my work who fixed my client's Aston Martin's driver seat side bolster and it looks good as new. Quality just depends on the person who is doing the repair/re-dye.

I passed on an IB with silver stone interior for just this reason. The driver seat was beat on a 20k mile car. It's a beautiful interior but tough to maintain.

I had some wear spots on my silverstone interior and had a local guy re dye it with a airbrush and it came out 95% better than what it was. It was mainly my driver door armrest and my center console like yours.
