How to restore my leather seats?

My 2008 E93 seats are not torn but the black is not as dark or soft as newer ones. I am looking for suggestions on what people have used to successfully rejuvenate their seats.

Have a 2009 with black leather. Have used Lexol leather conditioner about every 6 months - leather has remained pretty close to what is was when new. Highly recommend - reasonably inexpensive and quick to do.

I went ahead and ordered the Leatherique leather rejuvenator kit.

I tried Lexol and then Leatherique on some seriously dried car seats and then a number of other leather goods I had at the time. Didn't seem to help anything and eventually with many treatments, the leather split and came apart. I couldn't ever tell that it softened anything. Maybe it works better on other kinds of leather or leather that is in good condition. Then I landed on Griot's leather rejuvenator. It smells a bit - supposed to all be the natural oils. I use a little odor remover afterwards as I'm wiping off the excess. The big trick to any of it is to apply it on a really hot day so it will soak in over at least a few hours. I wish someone would do a big comparative review of leather treatments. Good luck.

It depends on how much destroyed your leather seats have been. You can find a complete tutorial at Youtube or Google with great ease.
