Not many people know this but you can get the seats repainted. Most seats are dyed to get the beautiful colors that they are. That dye which is really a paint wears off over time and can be refinished to look brand new by professionals. Comparitively the price usually isnt that bad but you will spend a few dollars. I love black and brown lether seats the best. Shoe polish and a leather brush and voila all done. white or red or any other color that they dont readily make dyes for is much harder and require a quick trip to the pros. Still worth it if you want to get a perfect finish.
