Leather dye

The leather on my driver's seat side bolster is looking worn. Its the light grey. Any recommendations for a good source for matching leather dye, or is this something I shouldn't try to DIY but leave to a professional?

I heard Swissvax dye is good and it's color matched via code.

I was given the contact of dom@scheerdetailing.com a while back and he can get the stuff fairly cheap and is quite knowledgeable.

Thanks for the info. Seems pricey, $90 for a little bottle. I need to find the color code from my dealer; the VIN decoder called the leather color Alaskagrau but didn't give a number.

Will do. Shipping overseas will take awhile, so I don't know when it'll be done.
