Default restoring leather, retain patina?

Any suggestions, i want to restore the supple feel to the seats in my 420g but i dont want to re dye any of it. I want to retain the patina. The seats are in excellent shape with no tears or cracks just a little discoloration here and there but they are quite dried out. Any help would be appreciated.

Everything you need to do exactly as you want, retaining the original leather, including rejuvenating the leather with a water based colour wash (which recolours the cracks and creases without recolouring the good leather) and reinvigourating the leather smell is available at Gliptone Leathercare Ltd, 250 Halifax Road, Todmorden, West Yorks OL14 5SQ Tel + 44 (0)1706 839 365.

I did my seats in the BMW with Gliptone. Product very good customer service c(((p. As you can tell from the photos I like restoring misused cars. The other photo is not the finished product but you can already see the difference, I hope

A before and after pics for you to give you some idea of what can be done.

I have just finished using the gliptone cleaner and conditioner on my seats and they are coming up well, i reckon i will have to have a few more applications to get them more supple. I find warming the leather first with hair dryer helps the product absorb better. Nice leathery smell throughout the garage now as well!

I usually do my seats on a hot summers day. Plastic gloves on, after a good cleaning first though, and smoother the leather in the conditioner. Windows shut let it cook. When its soaked in after at least a day I give it a good buffing up with a towel and they come up like new. I always keep a bottle in my garage. Good product , but lousy service from Gliptone.
